Day 26 Mary, Mary Quite Contrary

 Day 26--

Matthew 13:23 -- "But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it.  He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty, or thirty times what was sown."

What better present for a future farmer than his own field and crops to watch grow??

Great Sally gave this "ROOTVUE" to JJ for his birthday...mix the soil, plant the seeds, and watch the roots grow!!! Perfect!!!  It even has a "shade" to cover up the roots so  they'll think they are underground.  The shade will come off so you can look and then put it down again.  

Of course JJ's favorite part was making the dry cake like pods of soil...we mixed them with 2 quarts of warm water....we decided we need to help them dissolve! :)  

Just for the record....nothing is growing yet.  JJ's checked....a hundred times! :)
