How a Garden Grows

I had hoped today would be nice enough to have a park and picnic day. Since that didn't happen, we did one of the next best things. Elsie and I planted a little indoor garden. There's not much to it...I bought a kit that came with basil, sunflower, and zinnia, which is a strange combination if you ask me. Since we're just in it for the fun and observation of it, I figure it'll work out perfectly. I bought her a "science journal" (notebook) so we can make observations and take notes to compare and contrast how they grow. See what PBS does to a mom? Too much Sid the Science Kid, I think. Still, I'm curious to see what Elsie will come up with all on her own. I'll be sure to post our findings when there's something good to report!

This is such a great idea!

Elsie, the future scientist. Has a nice ring to it! ;)

I can't wait until Max is old enough to play with science kits....one of the benefits of being a mommy!
