Moon Seeds!

We were given these moon seeds at the last NMFEx meeting, and I planted them with my grandchildren who were very psyched about the whole thing.

The original seeds went to the moon over 40 years ago on an Apollo mission with Astronaut Stuart Roosa. The seeds that came home were planted across the country, and our seeds came from those parent trees.

The kids and I planted the three sycamore seeds in a soda bottle 'greenhouse' (as per directions) and put them in a sunny spot in the greenhouse. We'll let you know how they do.
