Summer Planting

I got a couple seeds to plant.I putted them in groups,but only could plant four. At last,I  decided to plant wheat, corn, the white unknown and peas.

This is what the wheat looked like when it first sprouted. It was the first to sprout  four tiny sprouts. It usually is white and yellow green at first,but it slowly changes colors. 

The peas were the second to sprout. It only grew one small,short sprout. The peas leaves grow in a spiral.

A few days later,the unknown sprouted a while ago and it's leaves are thicker the other sprouts.

The corn sprouted third....but I noticed it's stem is a lot thicker than the other plants.

The peas are still tiny but it sprouted more and more! And their leaves still grow in a spiral.

Now the wheat has three /four leaves...but some still have two. My wheat grows the fastest of all of the other plants. This project is about how plants start from a seed to an adult plant. 


  1. Well done for looking after all your seedlings so well . It's a pity you could only choose four . I'm sorry I don't know what those mystery white seeds are ......could they be a citrus seed like a cumquat tree or a lemon tree . Where did you get them from ?

  2. I can't wait to see what the "unknown" seeds turn out to be! Is your little pup interested in these little plantings? Our dogs like to smell the plants and dirt and fertilizer and our cats like to eat the plants!
    Have a great day!

  3. How exciting to watch seeds grow into plants. Thank you for the pictures and such great descriptions. I can't wait to find out what the mystery seeds become.

  4. Oh! I forgot to ask you what books you are reading now! Why don't you do a post about them for us?
    Have a happy day!
