I decided, why put off until tomorrow what I could do today. So, we talked about how long trees take to grow, and I offered up some supplies to grow something that would grow much faster...pumpkin seeds. She did everything by herself. Putting soil in her pot, planting the seeds, carrying it over to the spot where she insisted on growing it (same little spot where she was trying to grow a tree), and watered it. Cross your fingers that we'll be able to successfully produce a pumpkin for her. She's already planning to carve it for Halloween. I have grown a pumpkin in the backyard before, so hopefully that bodes well for our project.
