A couple weeks ago I plucked a couple of large sprouts from the compost (yes, more sprouts in the compost) and planted them in proper soil. Much to my surprise, my diligent watering and mulching is actually leading them to prosper. But what are they?
Considering how many sunflower shells get swept up into the compost, I thought they were most likely sunflowers. But when I compare it to last year’s young sunflower, now I’m not so sure. Could it be a squash or a cucumber? I don’t remember putting any mature cucurbits into the compost. Nah, sunflower is still the most likely.
