It all began with a pack of seeds.
Water is added to the 36 pellets to increase their size, which provides plenty of
room for the seed to plant their roots, and grow.
The pellets have grown.
A hole, 1/4 inch in depth, is dug into each pellet allowing for the seed to be planted.
Excess soil is used to cover the seed. The plants are then placed on a heating pad,
underneath an artificial light to imitate sunlight. The plants are then covered to
encourage growth, and to help retain moisture.
Just a few days later...WE HAVE TWINS!
Shortly after, the other seeds began to sprout.
This past weekend, the plants were given a taste of real sunlight.
To help protect the young plants from wind, rain and animals, a makeshift greenhouse
has been built to ensure their safety.
I cant believe that it has been almost 2 months since we planted the Pink Girl seeds. The time is quickly approaching for the girls to make their way to the real soil. Eating time is going to be here before we know it!
