Millipedes were abundant when the house was overgrown with weeds. Once we started clearing the garden, their population dwindled and the boys had given up looking for them.
Looking in the drain and under the plants, the boys were surprised to find quite a number of them that afternoon.
The millipede gives off foul smelling hydrogen cyanide when stepped on (it was an accident, I promise!)
The boys' hideout
I dried an ear of corn and somehow it was left to sprout on a pile of construction sand. Han was the first to spot the sprouts and came running while shouting "Jagung is growing! Jagung is growing!"
Our corn was stunted when we planted them too close together a few years back, so this time I spaced them out.
