J had a little grass plant that he grew at school from an itty bitty seed. His class watered their plants each day, decorated the cups, and he loved his plant! He brought it home and it sat happily by the window for several weeks continuing to grow….and spread pollen through our house. For our sake and the plants, it needed to move to greener pastures, so I finally convinced J that we needed to plant it out in the backyard where it could grow and help the grass.
It took quite a bit of convincing, but finally this weekend we removed our lemon tree (that died. Because we left it outside in the winter. Which you should not do.) and planted his little grass plant:
And we planted the little grass patch in the ground:
With lots of fresh dirt, to help him grow! Hopefully he will take hold and spread across the little dirt patch and cover it completely. In the meantime, J will be watching and watering it carefully. And making sure his brother doesn’t try to roll on it. Seriously. That was discussed.
