We are all itching for spring around here. It has been a late winter but now its March and still cold. I was cleaning out a spaghetti squash the other week and thought hmm, I wonder if I could plant these things. Not even sure how to go about it, a quick google search told me to wash the seeds and put them in a baggie to see if they would germinate (sprout). Sure enough, almost all of my little seeds had a few sprouts in just a couple of days.
Last weekend I dragged DJ out front and told her we were going to dig in the dirt and plant seeds. She wasn’t too sure what it was all about. She tried to help dig a hole but got frustrated with the dirt on her hands. But, once I had a good trench dug, she was more than happy to help drop the seeds in one by one. She had even more fun with the next step which was watering the seeds. Every day since, we come home and she shouts “Seeds Seeds” and wants to water them!
And look at what popped up this week, our little seeds!
She loves to stand on the patio and pour the water onto the little sprouts. At some point we will have to go through a biology lesson teaching her that now they are technically plants and no longer “Seeds Seeds”.
We are finally enjoying some warmer weather and hope that we have had our last cold snap! Bring on the Spring!
