Esther's Garden update
We had some disapointing news. She planted some flower seeds and none of them grew. It was a great disappointment. It wasn't because of lack of watering them or over watering. I didn't buy the seeds so I should have known not to try them. I am growing some watermelon and cantalope and when they get big enough to transplant I think we will put watermelon in the grow box. I might also try to get some pansy's in later in the season so they can be growing next spring. If you do a garden space for a child to do I highly recommend going and getting the plants already started from a garden center. Then the can have success the first time around. I might also get a few flowers to plant around the outside while the watermelon is still small so it doesn't grow too many weeds. I will have Esther choose the flowers and plant them. We should have something growing by next week then we can take pictures.
