Courting Spring: Buzzy Grass Grow Kit

Hello Friends.

Yes, I am still up to my neck in work during Hell Week, but I wrote several posts on Sunday so you will still see new posts from me.

As you know, I've been courting spring for the past few weeks.  I think it is working as we had unseasonably warm weather last week.  Today I am sharing another way I am courting spring. 

I saw these happy little grass growing kits at Michael's.  There were different insect pots, but I chose the sunny bee.
 Everything you need comes in the kit.  Simply add 3 tablespoon of warm water to a small dish and drop the soil tablet in.  Once the soil has absorbed the water, place half the mixture in the post followed by the seeds, and finally the rest of the soil.  
I placed them on the window sill above the kitchen sink where it gets indirect sunlight and I remember to keep the soil moist. 
After only a week, these bad boys need mowed.  They make me smile.  These kits would make a fun, inexpensive project for kids of any age.  Are your kids suffering from Spring Fever?  Buy a couple of these kits and allow them to court spring.

MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!

  5. Gosh, these take me back to when I was in infants school. We would grow mustard and cress seeds in the upturned empty egg shell, on which we had drawn a jolly face :-D
