Pumpkins for Sale!

To make my pumpkin sale I had to :

  • make the signs
  • buy 15 pumpkins
  • price them
  • set up the stand
  • hang up the signs
    I sold 10 of them. 

    My first customer took 2 little ones for $4 each.  

    My second customer took 1 large pumpkin for $12.

    After the sale, our neighbors bought one, then Uncle Fred, and then Nana. And we kept 2 for ourselves.  Altogether we have $114 from all the pumpkins we sold, but we had to spend $90 to buy the pumpkins and make the signs.  We made $24. Next year I'm going to grow my own pumpkins!

    Rubbery Egg

    From this book:

    In the Chemistry section, I did Experiment 196 - Rubbery Egg.

    I put an egg in vinegar in a glass, and I waited several days.

    Today we went to see the egg.  We took it out and it felt rubbery.

    Here's the explanation:

    The vinegar reacts with the calcium in the eggshell, dissolving it. This makes the shell rubbery. This shows the importance of calcium to make the shell strong, just like the calcium in are bones.Keep drinking that milk!
    I don't know how but the vinegar must have done something to the calcium in the shell!
