Burpee Greenhouse Magic

Remember I wrote about the special greenhouse that my Pediatrician brought me from America? It really is a magic greenhouse! And Burpee really told the truth, all their seeds germinated really fast.

Look at how quickly the seedlings sprouted! We sowed the seeds 5 days before this photo was taken. Some of the seeds that sprouted had become so tall (like the mammoth sunflower and the teddy bear sunflower) that we had to transplant them:

The watermelons had to be transplanted too:

Because the plot the watermelons are in is right where my curly hose is, someone keeps bumping the poor sprouts. So we put little cut-off mineral water bottles over them to protect them. Curious Gardener taught me this trick.
