Apple Trees!

We live in the desert. So we rarely see apple trees. My oldest grandaughter wanted to plant apple seeds a few months ago. so she got on the internet and found out how to get the seeds ready. Wish I would have taken pictures of the seeds then. And had I known they would get as far as they did, I sure would have. they sat in the fridge for weeks, in the wet paper towel and plastic or whatever she put it in. We kept forgetting to wet the paper towels. finally my husband told her lets just try putting them in the soil outside. so they planted them in little rows out in our lawn. We all pretty much forgot about them, and the other day my husband called me outside to look at something. And this is what we saw-------
How cool is that! She is so happy! And so am I. Never thought they would get this far. don't know how long thety will live, but we will enjoy them as long as they do!
My Daughter and grandson have both been sick with the stomach bug.. I sure hope I don't get it!!
