Ben's candy tree
Last time I wrote about Ben planting some candy. Today, he noticed a weed growing in the general vacinity of the planted candy. He is sure his candy is growing. I mentioned that it looked like the other weeds and I wasn't sure it was a candy plant. He came up with some story about the candy melting into the soil and being absorbed by the roots of the plant. Like a white carnation put in red food coloring, he is sure the weed has been transformed by absorbing the melted candy juice and is now somehow a candy plant. I told him, I wasn't sure about it. He told me to just wait and see. Glad I have a smart kid or I might have pulled up our candy tree with the weeds.
