Way back when in year 7, my year group made Science Fair projects. No, not your nerdy-American-kid-building-a-rocket science fair project, but actual scientific, research-based projects with a great deal of technicality and insight required. I was lucky enough to have a great deal of help from my Mother, who not only teaches science but runs her school's Science Fair and helps run the main Auckland competition. Since I was in the Manukau one, there was no conflict of interest.
Anyway, I had had an idea once looking through a book of science projects; there was one where you planted a seed and covered it with plastic. The condensation that formed on the plastic would then help water the plant. An interesting idea, which I adapted to my own context. The previous year I had seen my brother win an award at the finals, during which I noted there was a prize for a project with native New Zealand plants. Being the enterprising young person that I was, I decided my project should make use of native seeds!

So that is the story of my babies- forgive me for neglecting them of late, but they've done gone and growed up all of a sudden, and moved out! At least I can keep a closer eye on them now!
