While at the farm supply store today, I spied a display of plant kits of various types for children. All with whimsical themes. Some for the Princess, some with carnivorous plants (this was a hydroponic kit) Some with easy to grow veggies, herbs and flowers but the one that caught my eye (after the carnivorous one) was the Dragon’s Lair. It claims that one can “Grow your Own Dragon’s Den” and “Grow plants named for Black Dragons”. It even has dragons breathing fire on the cover. I was intrigued. Being fond of blue dragons and all I thought hmmm, maybe. I also read on the box ” Easy and Fun to Grow” Ages 4+. Well I qualified for the age part and fun and easy sounded good too, so I nabbed a Dragon’s Lair kit and tried to smooth over my son’s dismay at not buying baby chicks with the offer of candy. (It worked) Whew! Not ready to go there again quite yet.
When I got home and Really looked at the contents, I noticed that it contains a dragon. Woohoo! Bonus for me! When I saw what color it was, I knew this was meant to be. Take a look:
The seeds need to be soaked over night and there is the prep work of making the dragon trails and cave (it’s in the instructions!) Over the next few weeks, I will be posting the progress of this little project. We will see how easy this dragon’s den is to grow. 🙂
