Olive, Olive Quite Contrary, How Does Your Garden Grow?

A few weeks ago, Olive received this big green box in the mail!  It was a "Kiwi Crate" from Pop! She was pretty excited about getting a box in the mail and she was even more excited when she saw what was inside!
 It was a window garden kit!  I had made window gardens with my kindergarteners for years, but this took that to a whole new level!  It came with every supply we needed including magic soil discs that grow into soil when you add water. 
 We read the directions and then got to work to plant our squash and beans. 

 Then we hung them on the back window to watch what would happen.
We checked on them every day to see if anything was happening.  She was so excited the first day she saw green!
Yesterday the beans had gotten really big, so we decided to transplant them into pots!  She was pumped!
 Check out those roots!

 Carefully putting the water in.

 We moved the pots to the window in the dining room where they will be able to live a little more comfortably without someone sticking their fingers in them constantly.

 Thanks Pop for the fun box-o-fun! We have loved watching our garden grow!
