Planting for Earth Day
Friday, April 20, 2012
Earth Day is on Sunday and I’ve been trying to figure out what to plant. I really wanted to plant a tree, but since I don’t have a house yet, that really wouldn’t work out too well. My problem was solved though when a hotel came by my work, to promote themselves, and gave us a bookmark that was embedded with seeds. How cool is that?
It even told you what kind of flower it was, how to plant it, and how long until it starts to sprout.
Just in case you can’t read it, it says:
So the flower should come out looking like this:
Pretty right? And here is a close up of the bookmark with the embedded seeds.
I just followed the directors and soaked the bookmark for awhile. And then folded it up and put it in a mason jar (the same mason jar from before, which Coco knocked on the bedroom floor, and so we had to replant something in it.)
I then covered the bookmark in soil.
It’s been sitting in the bathroom window now for exactly one week. Nothing has happened yet though, so we’ll see if it sprouts any. Both of my other flowers are really growing, but so far, no flowers.
Can you tell I’ve been super busy? I can’t even get a day-light picture of my plants. The one above was taken at 6AM on my way to work, yuck.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Are you doing anything special for Earth Day (the 22nd) or for Arbor Day (the 27th)?
