We have our first infiltrator

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?
