“Gardening is the slowest of the performing arts.”  Mac Griswold

A while back I talked about direct composting, burying kitchen scraps directly into the ground, and showed a picture of what can sometimes happen when you do this.  Sometimes buried seeds from squash or cucumbers or tomatoes can sprout.

The solution to this is to turn over the particular sprouting area.  That would leave the sprouting plants with roots up and foliage down and get them back to their job of composting.

Or, you could become curious, like me, and allow the sprouts to continue to grow.  That way you can find out what in the world sprouted.


Are you kidding!

Yes, my flower bed is now festooned with happy, wild vines filled with yellow blossoms.  I have no idea what’s about to pop.  I simply cheer on every pollinator that comes along.

I have a feeling that I could shape this in to a life lesson about waiting or growing or some such inspiring topic.  Ain’t gonna happen.  Just gonna wait.  Feel free to elucidate on your own.
