One of these days, we’ll have to write a blog about our composting project. That’s more Ken’s thing – so I’ll leave it to him. For the purposes of this post, I just wanted to note that a) we compost and b) we have been adding some of the compost to our window boxes/pots/raised beds, as we plant seeds and transplant our seedlings. We’ve also collected some of our compost “tea” and used it to water the plants after we first transplant them. I can’t say if it’s done any good – but it certainly hasn’t done any harm. Our indoor compost gets a lot of eggshells and vegetable waste… but I think we generally try to avoid any seeds. That being said, I noticed this dude in our window box (which houses dill and sage) today:
It looks like the seed is growing straight out of one of the compost eggshells… so it’s definitely something we ate and threw away. To me, it looks like a squash – similar to the squash plants we’re growing indoors right now – but I don’t think we’ve eaten squash in months. So, I’m at a loss. Eggplant?? I’m excited to find out. I love that there’s a little mystery in our garden.
These were our squash plants a couple of weeks ago. See the similarity?
