Plant a Seed

By Carissa Tobin

MON MAY 25, 2020

One of the first weeks of the quarantine, Little L and I planted some seeds. Well, maybe that's not true. First we had to eat the food and save the glass jars to plant them in. Then we planted the seeds.

And they're growing!

Apparently pickle, sauerkraut, prunes, and olive jars work great for growing seeds!

So are the seeds we planted in various planters on our balcony!

We planted watercress, tomatoes, and basil. But of course we forgot to label them, so at this point, it's just a surprise!

This one has some wildflowers in it.

Why is it so fun to see that something that you planted is actually growing?

And then, of course, there's my personal favorite. We didn't even plant anything, and buds are sprouting!

It's only a weed if you don't want it. No complaints here. We should probably start watering it.

Best of all, Little L loves watering plants, so it gives us a daily chore, I mean, activity, to do together.

Seeds are growing.

Small wins.
