Popcorn

Saturday, September 4th, 2021

I purchased popcorn seed for a Thanksgiving card. Had a few seeds left over so I decided to plant them. The result was three plants. Two of the plants were infested with insects. One died, the other looks like this–

Will there be a few kernels of popcorn?

The third plant was slow to grow. I kept it protected in the greenhouse. Recently potted it up.

2021 May 27 Bean Found in Pot
The bean was found in the same pot that it had been a volunteer in 2020. It is from bean seeds purchased from neighborhood kids for twenty-five cents in 2019.
