Wow I have to say this is one of the slowest growing plants I have ever seen. There has been many more seeds that have started. I think perhaps I didn't get some planted deep enough though. So if you are going to try this make sure your seeds are about 1/2 inch under ground. The stems and roots are very weak on them and as they get bigger they are falling over. They also like to be watered ALOT! I have had to make sure they are always wet sometimes watering twice a day. As soon as they start to get dry they start to fall over. I hope I can grow some of these to adult :O) I will be planting another set today I believe trying to plant them more deeply this time.
Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
