Little plants, and growing soil.





For a mere $1, you too can be the owner of a starter pot from Target. Buzzy Seeds has a slew of seeds. Looking on their website, you can even grow grass in little square shaped pots. I must say that I got pretty excited picking out petunias, oregano and sunflowers(my favorite) from the dollar bin a Target. I am hoping I can parlay these little seedlings into a window box come spring(if it does.)



The most interesting part for me was growing the soil. Yes, I got to grow soil! The dirt is compacted into these little pellets and when I poured water on them, they expanded. It was really fun to watch.



The asylum flower has already started to sprout, so I am hopeful.

Thanks to Leslie K. Brown for the tip on the dollar plants!
