Its Grow Time!

About the Book
Have you ever planted some seeds, watched them start to grow, and thought now what do I do? Or, have you planted some seeds, they sprouted, and two days later they were dead? Some of you are reading this right now are nodding your head yes and thinking out loud, “what the heck happened?” You stick some seeds in the dirt and they grow, how hard can that be? That’s what the directions on the seed packet said to do. You did read the directions, right?
It’s Grow Time! is the step-by-step book for you. It takes you from seed sprouting to planting outdoors without the information overload that makes you throw your hands up and walk away. You must learn to walk before you run, this is no different. If you can get past the two-day dead thing, you’ll be planting at least one flower or vegetable plant outdoors this summer. Being able to say “I grew that” is pretty sweet!
