Fruit and Veggie Month

Fruit and Veggie Month

Posted by —

Published —

November was fruit & veggie month, so I decided to come up with a challenge if you’re willing to take part. This is to collect the seeds from fruit and vegetables that you buy. They will probably grow better from an organic store, but you can also grow them from a supermarket.

The photo above is an apple tree that my sister grew from an apple seed which she ate and we’ll get a tree.

The other is of lemon and orange seeds which I collected, and I am drying so I can grow some trees.

If you decide to do this, tag me in and I’ll share it! It’s really fun and then you can give them away to other people.
