Apple Seeds: Week 14

It's hard to believe that three months have passed since we started this little experiment. Our twenty-two seedlings range from 6 to 11 centimeters tall with lots of leaves, woody stems, but, as Mighty Mouse is quick to point out, no apples. The other day I reminded her that it may take 10 years before the trees grow any fruit. "You'll be 15 by then," I said.

Her face lit up. "I'll be bigger than Emma!"

"Uh, no. She'll be 17."

Her shoulders slumped. Maybe I shouldn't have told her.
