As I was walking around the garden I found some plants that are growing, but I don't know what they are. This really shouldn't be surprising since I don't really know what anything looks like except by looking at the fruit that it bears. So I have a few unknown plants that I keep tending to hoping one day to find some fruit of some sort that will allow me to identify them as something.
One of the things that was suppose to be easy, was to pick the seeds of things that had died, so they can be used to start new plants when Bill gets back. I know I was suppose to pick the beans that are dead, but since I don't normally pick beans, how do I know what a dead bean looks like? So I picked something that I thought was dead, opened it up and I found what looks like an alive bean seed, very green and moist. I try again with something that looks even deader, this bean looks less alive that the other, but still moist and green. Then I find a 3rd bean plant, which has even deader looking bean pods, as I open this, I find a dried bean. So I have picked 3 different beans, but which one do you replant?
Thankfully, no one is depending on me to produce vegetables for them, so if I grow something it will be a bonus, and just getting outside has been fun. Stay tuned for more info as I try my hand in gardening.
