Our Pumpkin and Sunflower Story
Our story started last spring. We planted seeds with our big buddies.
After they sprouted we transplanted them to our outside garden.
All summer, myself and another family ventured to the school to keep them watered. When school started, in September, we were happy to see blossoming pumpkins and tall sunflower plants.
All September we kept them watered
and watched the pumpkins change from green to orange
and the sunflowers blossom and opened towards the sky.
Today we harvested.
We counted how many sunflower blossoms grew on this one stalk that I’m holding.
Inside we’ve been documenting our pumpkin story.
The children look at the pictures and we write what they say.
Our pumpkins and sunflowers are now keeping our scarecrow company till we’re ready to eat them.
