I think something is wrong with Emma's plants. Her pumpkin and watermelon seedlings don't appear to be dead...just collapsed. Not sure what I did to cause this, or what I can do to fix it. She thinks they are "night-night" so I really hope they don't die.

Today I am cleaning my kitchen. Every little nook and cranny will be spotless, and I will be so happy. I will promise myself that, because I enjoy cleanliness so much, I will keep it this way. But of course I won't. Don't ask me why. I love when my house is clean, so why isn't it clean all the time? It's not like I hate cleaning or anything (except the bathtub). Last week I cleaned every inch of the office and vowed to keep it looking nice. I've been trying, but slowly falling behind. It's like I'm running a race with Clutter and Mess, and I just can't quite keep up with them. Every once in awhile I'll pull ahead, but they always overtake me.

If you mean collasped as in not standing upright . . maybe it is because both watermelons and pumpkins bth grow from vines which sorta lay down . . . I dunno . . . just an idea

Sarah,
I think Emma's plants have what is called damping off and it is what almost always happens when we plant seeds to grow inside. I don't know why but it seems to happen. I'm sorry.

At the nursery I went to the other day, the lady said that when we grow seeds inside, we need to make sure the light source is close to the plants - otherwise they get "leggy" and will droop. Its like they are reaching high for the light. Maybe that's why?
