Well, its been a very busy few days here, most of our holidays are over and Pooka and Brother are settling into a nice routine before they head back to school. In fact, Pooka has had some time to get her hands dirty and plant her root viewer and her flower from her Great Aunt.
|Bowl of dirt plus assembled viewer|
|Seeds in place|
The directions say to leave the green root cover in place unless specifically viewing the roots since the roots will not grow correctly if exposed to light. Pooka had a hard time understanding how she would see them until I removed the cover and replaced it a few times. The cover does have labels on it to show you where to plant each seed which was nice since there isn't much room for markers in the set up.

Now we wait. The plants that have survived their move inside as well as our root viewer and flower got moved to the window in another room. We hope that they will get enough sunlight here but more importantly they should stay warmer since its no longer in the draft from the door (Since the flower says to keep it very warm).
|Now to await results|
The seeds in the root viewer have only been in the dirt since New Years eve, and the flower was put into the dirt the Saturday before. No real growth or sprouts yet, but as we learned last year, wait and give them time.
