I finally got my seeds in dirt. I couldn't be happier.

The boys and I did an experiment to see what birds are eating in our feeders. They recognized the sunflower seeds, of course, but not the rest. The results so far are in the cups behind the seeding tray. Only one sunflower seed sprouted and the boys are diligent about watering and watching. It'll be fun when they all flower.
