I was so excited to have a papaya seed sprouting for me! I LOVE fresh papaya! And only one was sprouting. I was giving them a little real sunshine and turn around to find my two year old has moved the see tray and was trying to "help" the seedlings. Papaya sprout is nowhere to be found now:(. Good bless her for wanting to help, but oh... Frustration!

Ah well, off to buy store bought fruit.

Why not let your two year old sow the seeds and write down No Direct sunlight until baby green says hello!?

Heartbreaking! But with a bit of moisture and heat, the new seeds will sprout in no time! Bless your two-year-old - future is bright for her - so proactive!:LOL:

It wasn't the sunlight that did it in. She pulled it out! I think she saw me pulling some weeds and thought that was what she was supposed to do.

Please ship her this way! I could do with an extra pair of hand and I will be a good mentor!:LOL:;)
