SEE IT GROW.
• a blotter.
• a drinking glass.
• peas, beans, or radish seeds.
Soak the seeds in water overnight.
Wet a blotter and line the inside of a glass with it. See Picture.
Poke the seeds down between the glass and the blotter.
Put four or five tablespoons of water into the glass each day to keep the blotter wet. Watch the roots, stems, and little leaves grow from the seeds.
Drop five or six seeds on top of the soil in each carton. Sprinkle water on them every day. Some of the seeds will grow big and strong. Pull out the plants that do not grow well and throw them away. This gives the strong ones more room to grow.
