Millie’s Corn

               Back in March Millie wanted to grow corn. 
She started by putting some kernels in paper towel inside a plastic bag.
After Spring Break she took it down from the window to see if anything changed.
We saw one little sprout.  So she wrapped them again and got the paper really wet before putting it back in the bag and taping it back on the window.
During her next visit this is what she found when she unwrapped her kernels.

It was time to plant.
               She placed them once again on the window sill
    and created a sign to let everyone know what she was growing.

The corn grew very well in the cup but it was time to plant them out doors.

Millie’s mom invited our program to help plant a garden at their home.  I’ll save that for another post.  But here is where we transplanted Millie’s corn.  We'll see if her ambition and perseverance pays off with cobs of corn.
