It was very interesting. I let the kids choose between peas, green beans, sunflowers, zinnias, and marigolds. It was a fairly even distribution across the board. I'm going to have them make predictions about which seeds will sprout first, then we'll measure them to see how fast each one grows.

Happy Earth Day! My kiddos will be planting flower and green bean seeds today. Hopefully I can "spark" some aspiring gardeners!

This is wonderful information. So far this year we have got the best deals on bushes - trees and perennials at Walmart. If you get the items when they first come in from the growers they have a better chance of surviving the transplant.

Happy Shopping .... off to blog about what I found today!

IT all begins with YOU..... Plant the seeds and get growing healthy!

emoticon for letting us know. This is a great offer. We'll have to swing over to our local one and see if they are participating in that promotion.

Earth Day was 1 or 2 weekends ago, wasn't it? Sure hope Home Depot is still doing this. WONDERFUL!!!

Thanks I'll check it out.

My circumstances do not dictate my attitude

Some of us are held to higher standards, some of us hold our self's to higher standards. (who are you?)
