 We tried planting a garden in the Spring.  It looked good for the first few weeks, but eventually it all died.  I had helped the kids plant the vegetables in flower pots, the long rectangular kind.  What I didn't know was that there are plugs in the bottom of those, which must be left open for the water to drain.  Daniel says that's the reason the plants withered and died.  They drowned.
When Alicia was over the other day, she and Danya and some of the kids were digging around in the dirt behind the basketball goal in our back yard.  That's where we had thrown the left over seeds from our gardening project.  Apparently, some of the carrot seeds were hardy little things.  They survived and grew, somewhat.  They weren't very big, but the kids loved them.
