growing cress

we had some cress seeds lying around the house from last summer, so after the kids finished their chocolate mousse, they washed out their pots and took the initiative to grow cress seeds, they did everything themselves (we did this a few months back, so they knew what to do), now the pots are sitting on a window ledge with the other house plants, and the kids are waiting eagerly for the first arrival of shoots.

the part that i initiated was for them to keep a diary, from the first day when they grew the seeds up until the cress is ready to be eaten. we will be watching and discussing, how it grows, how long the process is, the importance of putting it in sunlight, whether they need to water it or not, how they are going to eat it etc.

i will keep you updated on the progress inshallah!
