Our young adults learned that a very cold temperature could damage our plants so we brought them in under the LED light.  After many weeks in the warm weather during April and May until last Friday May 20, 2022, these  cantaloupes seeds grew out of the rich soil we composted since last year. We threw away the seeds into the compost and never thought they would sprout like this, what a surprise! Now, we can't wait to see them climb on trellis and bear fruits (hopefully).  This will be an exciting journey to see. Stay tuned.

Last week, they were 2 feet tall and today, June 13, 2022, they stand 3ft tall with leaves 15 inches long.  Why the leaves grow so healthy? perhaps using dishwater with lots of oil residues to water our plants besides composted soil?

Since we have more plants than we need (50+) we are happy to share with  families of young adults with autism.

So, contact us here, first come first serve (bring a pot with at least 15inch tall)

UPDATED:  July 23, 2022 -- today they stand about 6 ft 1/2 tall.  Photos coming soon.

Mounting the trellis is learning solving problem skills. The young adults are very proud to see what they could do and would say "the plants are growing!"
