On my kitchen windowsill, there lives a little plant. Betsy had wrapped a dried bean in a damp paper towel and placed it in a mason jar on the windowsill, and we all delighted in watching it grow.
But now it’s not a sprout. Now it is a plant that needs dirt and light, and I feel bad that it grew in the winter and we can’t plant it outdoors. Should we transplant it to a pot with soil? Or would that prolong the inevitable?
I think in Linnea’s Windowsill Garden she grew similar things in pots indoors, so maybe we’ll try that. I have admiration for anything that works as hard as this little plant.
