My Green Thumb

A few weeks ago I read this guest post over at Campfire Chic by Laura of A Snail’s Life. Laura challenged readers to start small and plant something towards the goal of growing your own food.  It sounded like a fun homeschool project for Eleanor and one of my 30 by 30 goals is to keep plants alive, so I thought we’d give it a try.

We started small with these pots of basil and daisies from Target:

They came with a packet of seeds and this amazingly small dried soil puck. When you add water it fills the pot! So cool!

After we planted them I was sure I had done it wrong and they would never sprout. I don’t have a good track record with plants. I kill succulents!

Day One:

But lo and behold! About 5 days later, up they came!

Day Seven:

And they’re still going strong!

Day Fourteen:

I’ll keep you all updated on their progress!
