Got a call from grandma the other day requesting my detective skills. I gathered my detective equipment to go to grandma's in such a hurry, I forgot to put my shoes on.
The back story: When grandma and grandpa planted their tomatoes they amended the soil with a bag of composted manure. Grandma said she saw a bunch of white things in the manure, but didn't think much about it. Now, a few weeks later, they have a bunch of mysterious plants growing. Grandma said she was planning to pull them out because they would crowd the tomato plants.
Looks like a pumpkin seed! I think the cow that supplied the manure ate pumpkins. I asked grandma to transplant a few to another location in their yard, so I can see if I solved the mystery.
Grandma told me she transplanted 3 of the seedlings. (to the garden bed you can see behind me in the first picture) We will see what happens, maybe I'll have a pumpkin patch at grandma & grandpa's house.
ANNOUNCEMENT- Yes, it's true, I did meet Marlowe. That posting is coming soon, my secra-beary is hard at work on it. So stop back soon!
Grr-bye for now,
