Mystery Sprout Surprise
It sounds like a bad meal in a school cafeteria!
So I have about 20 containers out there. Not a huge amount by some of the experts standards. But lots for me!
I just kept going this year, because I have this shoebox full of old seeds. (four to five years) and I couldn't just throw them out.
I wasnt very diligent about labelling. I wasn't counting on much coming up.
So now I have new sprouts popping every day, and almost all my markers are faded.*laughs* So I have a bit of a mystery garden going.
It's a good thing I'm putting in a lasagna bed. I'll just kind of make that a 'holding' bed for the things I don't know until they get big enough to identify themselves.
So what is up? That I know of:
Poppies - a whole whack of poppies. I did a separate container of blue poppy. One sprout. One itty bitty sprout. Which Im babying, because I really really want this one.
Geum, Martha Washington?
and I have about 3 other containers with sprouts. No idea what they are. I think one is Datura Fleur de Lilac, but Im not positive. *Grins*
I really didn't think I'd have much luck with these seeds! Resiliant little buggers!
Now I have new seeds of broccoli and spaghetti squash. Is it too late to do the broc? Too early for the squash? I was going to go for it, and then try again later for the squash if it rots.
