Seedlings, Day 10

The boys are enjoying watching all our seedlings grow! They know these will turn into plants that will grow in our garden. If you want your children to eat well I highly recommend you plant some vegetables and let the kids watch things grow. Let them help you in the kitchen. I know, they get in the way and slow things down, but they really do pay attention. My kids will eat just about any vegetable raw while I am chopping getting ready to fix dinner. Sean’s favorite is usually raw onion! Good thing he also eats the mint leaves off my plant, well good for his breath, not good for my plant!

Everything has sprouted except the peppers. The cabbages and broccolis are the biggest. Notice the leaning plants…always need rotating as they grow towards the sunny windows.

Notice Sean in the background, he helped water this morning and kept trying to get into my shots!
