Growing Season: Starting Seeds

We were shopping the home improvement stores last weekend and I found myself sucked in my the seed isle.  The snow has finally melted in our world and spring is here!  That means I'm ready to try my hand at growing something.

When I was growing up I can remember my Dad spontaneously bringing home seed starter kits.  It meant that summer was on it's way.  Green grass, tractors in the field, sunshine!

We picked up a kit, some starter soil, and several seed packets including dill, basil and our favorite little tomatoes.

The Bug had a great time scanning the QR codes on the back of all the packets.

The kiddos had a ball filling each little cell with soil.  They then took turns choosing which seeds to plant.  We had a great time comparing the different shapes and shades of seeds.

After the seeds were planted the kiddos gave them a drink of water.  Now it's their turn to grow!

The kit even comes with a lid that you just pop on.  Instant mini greenhouse!

Update:  We found a sunny spot on my sewing table for our little greenhouse, and after about 7 days our seeds have sprouted.  Now if I can successfully transfer them to the garden in a couple of weeks it might be a miracle!
