8 days in, and the cosmos seedlings are taking off. Still no sign of the sweet pea sprouts, but I'll give them a couple more days in their little egg incubators before giving up hope.
And by the way, I agree with Sarah - Nellie Oleson was my favorite too. She was so evil, but her curls were so perfect!
Yesterday was spent in the backyard doing another project - this time dyeing eggs, our fingers and the dog. Best tip ever - use a cupcake tin to hold the dye. Definitely easier than using a bunch of little bowls! Thanks to Britta for the idea.
