How does your garden grow?

We spent the weekend at my brother's for Conference so I drafted a week's worth of posts while we wait for Comcast to grace us with their presence.

Last week Aspen and I journeyed to the Super Target near us and ended the trip with a stop at the dollar spot. I found some $1 seed packets (that included "growing agent" aka soil and pots) so I thought we could give it a try. Aspen loves doing anything as long as I call it a project so I told her we had an exciting plant project for the afternoon. Her eyes got as big as saucers at just hearing the magic word.

She helped plant some daisies and strawberries in these little pots and then we sprinkled the leftover flower seeds in the front beds. I think I accidentally tossed the strawberry ones but I'm not too torn up because the garden area in the backyard is a mess. I'm so not ready to tackle that and try to grow actual food.

The only hitch with this project was explaining to Aspen that a mere three hours after planting the pots looked the same. She's having a hard time understanding that she's not going to see a huge difference after every nap she takes. At least for a couple of weeks.

Hopefully this will be a little lesson on patience that turns out well. I'll be really sad if absolutely nothing grows!
