Magic Beans

OK, not Magic Beans but a Magical Seed!

About a year ago, T came home with a cooked, salted sunflower seed that another student at school gave him. He wanted to plant it and I told him it probably wouldn't grow as it was cooked and salted. I told him if wanted to plant it to go ahead and give it a shot.

He planted it and watered it and waited and watched.

It didn't grow.

Until about 3 months ago!

Not only did it grow - it grew like mad! Seriously, that's right up there with some of the craziest things I've ever seen.

(Never mind their grimacing mugs, it was terribly sunny that day.)

Wonders never cease, Ruth!
