Watch your babies grow with this neat viewing window!

You’ll need a few things:

* Carrot ends (Leftovers from last night’s dinner!)

* Casserole dish

* Plastic planter box (27 in)

* Sharpie

* Box cutter

* Industrial strength glue

* Plexiglass (26 x 8 in)


1. Place the ends of your carrots (carrot butts?) in a casserole dish with a bit of water.

2. Leave the casserole dish on a sunny window sill.

3. Change the water daily until they sprout (about 3 days).

4. While waiting for your sprouts, draw two vertical lines 1.5 in (or 4 cm) away from the edges of your planter box.

5. Cut along both lines with a box cutter. Then, cut two horizontal lines to make a rectangular window.

6. Use industrial-strength glue to attach a sheet of plexiglass to the inside of the flowerpot. Let dry overnight.

7. Fill the planter box with soil.

8. Plant your sprouted carrots close to the window.

9. Watch them grow!

10. Pull the carrots out when they’ve grown (probably about 12 weeks).

Happy harvest!
