Hey everyone! I am so sorry for my random mysterious disappearance! I was just feeling very emotionally exhausted with everything and needed a break from technology to just focus on myself and get my world back in order. I would also like to make mention that I will be reducing my weekly schedule to once a month. I know that’s not much but my family and my sanity is more important lol. Enough of that though, shall we begin!?
I have never grown anything from seed before so I thought that could be really fun for the kids to help out with! I started out our seedlings by placing about 8 pumpkin seeds and 12 pepper seeds in between damp paper towel; I then placed the paper towel in a baggie filled with air to act as a greenhouse. I figured this was a great way to get the seedlings started without needing a ton of containers just in case not all of the seeds started which, sadly, seemed to be the case with a lot of our poor little seeds!
After about a week our pumpkin seeds finally started to sprout! 2 of them really took off but there was another 2 that were slowly trying to push out some leaves; our peppers took about 2 weeks to sprout.
