Ivan and Owen have both been fascinated by seeds and the prospect of growing more apples by planting the little seeds inside them. I don’t know how many times we have begun the process of sprouting seeds only to neglect them and have to begin again.
I have been buying whole grain bread for the boys for some time and recently the brand I like to purchase was not on the shelf. There was another whole grain selection so I got it and to the chagrin of Owen, it was full of whole grains. There were little flakes and seeds that made the bread course and less than desirable in his opinion. Ivan loved it though. I didn’t realize why until I saw him pulling the seeds out of the bread and saving them.
He finally spoke up and told me that he is going to plant these seeds so we can grow a sandwich tree.
I love it.
