growing in pots on my windowsills.
I have yellow snap beans, green peas, cucumbers and cantaloupe that have poked up through the soil. Oh, and two lonely little cherry tomato plants.
I am surprised to see the cantaloupe growing. Maybe three years ago I saved some seeds from a store bought melon that was exceptionally tasty. I haven't done anything special with the seeds - just put them in an envelope and stored them in a box on a shelf with the rest of my seeds. Same with the cherry tomato seeds. They came from the little garden David had in his back yard. My grands had picked a bucket of cherry tomatoes for me and I saved a few seeds. And they are actually growing. Well, two of them anyway.
What possessed me to buy some garden seeds to begin with, I don't know. I live in an apartment. The communal deck on the building isn't large enough for any serious container gardening, although Duane and Lori have three tomato plants growing there. I guess acquiring seeds is just part of the preparedness thing.
I know I am easily amused, but the fact that these plants are actually trying to grow tickles me.
I wonder if I can keep from murdering them like I do with most house plants. I hope so.
I NEVER KNEW THIS
