Seed Planting 2016

Elias has been asking to plant seeds for weeks, but I’ve had a lot of other stuff on my mind. Finally on Tuesday this past week I felt like we had a few extra minutes and we stopped at the store after school so that the boys could pick out what they want to plant. They chose sunflowers, corn, snap peas, orange carrots, yellow carrots, lettuce, and my personal favorite, “pretty white flowers for Mommy” (those were Elias’ words for baby’s breath).

The boys were super excited to dig in. I got out some potting soil and some pots to start the seeds in. We’ll select the best starts to plant in something more suitable after they grow a bit.
