When we planted the strawberry plants you were much more interested in getting muddy feet and making your own puddles with the watering can. So I mainly put them in the pots. But when it came to the Sun Flower seeds I discovered you already knew how to plant seeds - poke finger in soil, place seed in, cover over. Peppa Pig is educational too!
We planted the whole packet - about 30 seeds - and I was then a bit worried of all of them starting to grow, but as it happens about 10 of them have taken which is a good amount.
You love your new job of watering the plants each evening, but mostly you love being able to make puddles to jump in!
We have had 2 strawberries ripen so far, both of which you have insisted that I eat. They were delicious! The Sunflowers are growing incredibly fast - about 1 inch a day. I have to keep adding more string to keep them upright. I can't wait for the day we go outside and fine we have a bright yellow sunflower!
Update, approx 1 month later - we had about 8 strawberries from your plants. All delicious and eaten by mummy of daddy because you wouldn't try them! And your sunflowers are growing at an astonishing rate of several inches a day (the difference between morning and evening is noticeable!). They are now as tall as Daddy and starting to grow flowers.
Update, approx 2 months later - the sunflowers are now as tall as the verandah roof and the petals are starting to open. You are so excited! And we seem to be getting a second round of strawberries!
