The infiltrator brought back-up…

So, yesterday I blogged about the mystery seed that has sprouted in the midst of our dill and next to our sage.  Since he looks like he’s growing straight out of some compost eggshell, I felt like the safe assumption is that he’s from seeds that were in our compost.  BUT, almost as if the plants have ears… or, actually, internet and are following this blog… this morning I noticed two of the infiltrator’s brethren had popped up in one of our raised beds (a good 10 ft. from our box with dill).  Does this mean that they’re not from seeds that were in our compost?  No, not necessarily.  We added the same compost to the bed near the bok choy.  Still… this is very suspicious.  I’m dying to know what these plants are!

The larger plants are the baby bok choy.  You will see the mystery seeds in the top right – with yellowish coloring on the ends of their leaves.  WHO ARE THEY?

  1. Until they grow their first set of true leaves, it’s hard to be sure, but they do look very much like sunflower seedlings. They can pop up everywhere thanks to birds spreading them about. Pop them into a couple of pots and keep us posted…

  2. oh – good call! they DO look a lot like the sunflowers did at first. i’ll keep my eye on them… cuz if they are sunflowers, they are definitely too big for those window boxes!
