Meg vs. The Garden: Starting seedlings

Saturday: Plant melon seeds in grow trays with the boys.

Clearly this was not today's goal, since today is Friday. But I ended up having a friend's kids over all day, so I thought that cleaning the garage was perhaps not the best idea with between 4 and 6 kids running around at different times of the day. Instead, they all helped me start a few seeds. The kids were excited, the job only took about 5 minutes (just about the length of their attention spans), and everyone was happy. So far we have watermelon, cantaloupe, and corn. I'll do some more as we move further into spring. I am confident that I am capable of killing any and all of them, but for the kids' sakes I hope they grow!
