Seeds of Change: Truett Plants His First Seeds – Organic Watermelon!

I’m hoping that Truett did not inherit my “thumb of death“, and instead, got his dad’s green thumb.  We have never planted seeds before but Truett was excited at the chance, especially when he found out they were watermelon seeds!  Seeds of Change sent us several packages of seeds; okra, squash, tomatoes and this fun Organic Watermelon Garden Starter Kit for kids.  I currently have some of those seeds growing as I type this and will share that later.

Here is little man planting his first seeds.  I’m a terrible camera person. Where’s a tripod when you need one?

Do you plant seeds? And do you get your kiddos involved? I’d love to hear about it and any tips you might have for us!

    Oh he is cute! And you were smart to do this outside. See, I totally would have done this on the kitchen table and then remember that kids are messy and have potting soil all over my kitchen. :P

    Maybe if they grow you can attempt the square shaped watermelons.
