Playing in the dirt

Sophia brought home a pea plant from daycare, and it was getting too big for it's wee plastic cup, so we re-potted it into a larger cup thing.  Given my tendency to kill plants (I blame the cats!), I didn't have much hope for the little bugger, but it was the experience that counted, right?

So, we filled the new cup with dirt....

Very carefully

Though not very efficiently

Then, we jumped forward a few steps after I scooped out dirt for her (patience: not a virtue I posess), put the plant in, and pushed it down.  

So far, neither I nor the cats have managed to kill or eat the poor plant that entered in our house, and I am quite proud of that.  Maybe I should switch to growing peas.....
