First Plantings

Grandpa M gave us some cherry tomato plants and Lou received herb seeds from Aunt Erin and Uncle Joe for his birthday. The boys were dying to plant something (part of our list that didn't get accomplished the weekend before), so Monday we were ready to do some growing!

The instructions on the herb seed box say that it was created for kids and that there's a guarantee that it will grow. Great news! They each had their pot and sprinkled the mixture on top of the soil. Then took a mini rake and gradually worked the seeds into the soil. No surprise to anybody--this lasted all of 23 seconds for Ben.

We did this right before nap time and now I realize I probably should have done it earlier. Proof: Ben wasn't so happy to be done with our planting and explained that with loud crying.
