During Kindergarten last year, Eli's class grew different seeds in a plastic bag to learn about germination. When he brought the experiment home he asked to plant the pumpkin seed in the front landscaping bed.
So this summer Eli planted the seed. He diligently watered it and checked on it frequently to see if there was any growth. A couple months ago we had 2 green pumpkins (a medium sized one and a larger one). Eli was so proud to see that his diligence paid off. This last month, we watched it change from green to orange.
Here is Eli with his pumpkin that he planted from a seed.
