Everybody feel free to post a story or 3 about their kids gardening...

was planting seeds to grow nice flowers'. She asked if she could help
plant some seeds so I prepared a flat of growing medium and, as luck
would have it, I had her put a couple of sweetpea seeds that I had just
purchased in each cell. She covered each one up, watered them, and asked
how long it would take. I told her that she would be back home before
they started showing, but I would update her as they grew. Well, I've
just sent her the first picture via e-mail and she couldn't be happier!
Now, when I get to talk to her on the phone, the first thing she asks is
'How are the plants Pipi?'. Here's a pic that I sent her of the first
