One day, coming home from picking up Papa, Ruth decided she wanted to bring home some Morning Glory seeds to grow the pretty flowers. She and Josh sprouted them. They put the seeds in a cup on top of a piece of sock, and got the sock JUST moist.
After a couple days, the seeds sprouted. They left them in the cups until the sprouts were quite long. Some were trying to imbed themselves into the sock material.
This would be a picture of the sprouts in dirt.
After a day or two, the sprouts shot up thru the soil. This is after a couple days growth - obviously. If you look closely, you can see the roots heading toward the bottom of the cup.
Ruth waters her morning glories as often as Papa will let her. Soon the hope/plan is to put them in a pot next to the trellis by our planter in hope that the morning glories will cover the planter next summer!
Go Ruth! By the way, I stay out of it...I might kill her flowers! I inherited a BLACK thumb!
