See? All seems well, all my lovelies were out today (it was a good solid 23 degrees Celsius [73.4 Fahrenheit] outside today, so it was safe to bring them to lurk on the cement and get a taste of the outdoors and full, unfiltered sunlight again), yet these nagging suspicions...
Nevertheless, I document today's progress.
Jalapeno, doing fabulously!
Parsely? No, Farsely.
Am I surprised? Not exactly--I have heard that it is commonplace for seeds to get put in the incorrect packages, but that is not what I suspect happened here. (Yes, even though the B.S.il sort of looks like Cilantro until you literally put your face a fraction of an inch away from both varieties and see the tiny differences in real life. Voice of experience--but is it just my suspicions that make me believe that it is not just a couple of wayward Cilantro?)
So what do I think happened here? What are these suspicions of mine?
Suspicions = One of these things is to blame.
Guess which one?
Something tells me that those miraculously hardy weeds--despite my attempts to take out the roots from my borrowed compost soil--have found their way into my garden.
In addition to not being surprised (although I do feel a little cheated by the thought that many of the sprouts I was so excited about could have been a bloody weed all along), I am in a way quite happy that they are there. The reason is currently sitting in the windowsill--and no, it is not my seed-lets to which I am referring...
It is a certain troll feline who at one point in time ate my first three baby sprouts in the `windowsill` style garden that I attempted to create when I initially moved away from home--but that is a story for another day. In this case, I believe:
Weeds = bitter taste.
Kitty likes tall sprouts--but has not eaten any of mine this time around.
Perhaps that is because of the evil eye that I give her every time she checks them out.
And so at this point, I have decided that I will be continuing to watch them closely...
...And be sure to pluck their deceiving stalks straight from the soil the second they show themselves the traitors they are.
