Now I know School is out for Summer, but that doesn't mean the learning has to stop! There are some subjects you just can't learn in the Fall and Winter. I feel plants is one of them. We started growing some plants in the Spring and hopefully they will flower soon. This is Pie Pie and my plant journal along with photos taken as they grew.
Wednesday May 11th, 2011 ( My Anniversary!) We planted the seed in the dirt. We planted sunflowers and marigolds. We made sure they had sun and water. We also had an already growing marigold we are observing.

Our marigolds are growing nicely. We now have six sunflower sprouts.
Monday May 23, 2011
There are nine marigold sprouts. They are about one and a half centimeters high. There are nine sunflower sprouts too. The tallest is three and a half centimeters tall. They need some sunshine! We had a little this weekend, but mostly rain since they have been planted.
Thursday May 26th, 2011
There have been some nice sunny days for our plants. Unfortunately some bugs have been eating our plants! The sunflowers are doing well and the tallest is five and a half centimeters. The marigolds are not doing as well.
Monday May 30th, 2011
It has been very warm. We have been keeping our plants very well watered. The tallest sunflower is now six and a half centimeters. There is also a new bud on our marigold.
Will we get flowers on our plants?! Wait and see!
