>Growing Strawberries

>I don’t know much about gardening. Hopefully I can change that this spring.  I would like to plant a few things in pots and have the girls help me, maybe they can have their own garden.

While we were in Target the other day I saw the cutest little pots in their dollar bin section at the front of the store. I picked up two strawberry ones and two flower pots for them. They are the Buzzy brand in case anyone wanted to know.

These were really simple and I’m excited to watch them grow. We started by taking the soil out and placing it in another cup to absorb the water.

It was pretty cool to watch the soil go from flat to fluffy and full like so…

I knew strawberry seeds were tiny, but I had no idea they were this tiny.

Next it was time to put the seeds down in the soil. It said no more than 6 seeds per pot and to gently pat them down into the soil. See how gentle they were being?

We’re supposed to let them grown about 3inches and then transfer them to a bigger pot.
I hope they grow and I hope they grow bigger than the ones that come up in my front and backyard.
If not it was fun time spent with my girls anyway.

For now we are waiting for them to grow. We’re on day two and both girls ask me to bring them down from the window to see if they’ve started growing yet.
