and then it all came back - elementary school gardening 101! i remember the same exciting sprouting stage of big open green bursts in our little baby food jars. i remember coloring pages about the phases and i remember taking my happy little sprouts home. then the wilty, browned, and useless things would overhang the baby food jars. i remember that and i'd like to blame my mom, but maybe i just don't (and never did) have a future in gardening.
