mysterious mysteries: seeds

One of my more idiosyncratic enthusiasms is to occasionally plant seeds from our food into containers to see what eventuates. Like the wee lemon forests, which I planted almost a year ago.

Over the holiday break, I shoved some seeds into a pot and verily, like magic, sprouting occurred. Most peculiarly, two sprouts seem to be coming from the same seed:

It rather resembles an adorable small creature waving its arms about:


Of course I can’t remember what I actually threw in there, so it will be quite interesting to see what eventuates.

It occurred to me today that we didn’t attempt to grow anything other than a couple of herbs this year and that it is probably now too late in the year to do so. Must get onto this earlier next year.

  1. Your lemon grove is adorable 🙂 I have the same habit, and even a small three-tree lemon “forest” too, two avocado pits in plastic cups of water and until recently – a grapefruit tree and and a palm, grown from a date. I suppose that’s the millennia old programming inherited from our agricultural ancestors. Unfortunately my plants eventually die on me 🙁
