Welcome back! Today we'll hopefully solve the mysteries of the vegetable garden. Before I sample any of the greenery I've found in there, maybe you fine folks can say, "DON'T EAT THAT!" It would really suck if I ended up trying to nosh on something and Matt comes home to me doing a faceplant in...well....an erroneous plant.
Many thanks to those of you who either commented or emailed me with some answers to yesterday's plants. I can't wait to see what crops up, and what I can actually grow!
Absolutely no idea. When in doubt, rip it out. This goes for plants, bad hairstyles, and knitting. Not that I know about the knitting part, but I know some others that read this blog do!
This almost looks like basil to me. But when I ripped off a leaf...it smelled like nothing. Perhaps it's part of a mesclun salad?
These jobbies, I know these. These are chives. Too bad I don't like chives. But look how happy they are! Who wants to take home some chives?
I was absolutely over the moon to see this plant. This means I don't have to endure 9 months of pregnancy. We can just have a Cabbage Patch kid. Look, it's already cooking away in there! But are cabbage plants supposed to be furry like that?
These guys totally look like lettuce. And as a matter of fact, they're shaped in a very deliberate "L" pattern around the garden, so I know they're supposed to be in there, but what are they? Romaine? Iceberg? Lettuce find out! Yuk yuk yuk.
This guy looks very cool but I don't know if he serves a purpose. He also has a slightly furry/ thick leaf.
Look, here's the same plant, just more of it. I know. Riveting.
And then we have these rocket ship looking things, that also look like they belong in a mesclun salad, but then again, I always think a mesclun salad is just from someone mowing a lawn and putting the clippings on your plate. Hmm.
Now these guys, I have no idea. They're cute though, and nice leaves. Although I did scout something lying nearby that may be a clue, and I nearly ran back into the house in terror:
OH NOOOOOO! Not Brussels Sprouts! Those are just as bad as a weed! Unless anyone wants 'em, you're welcome to them, as long as they don't crowd the beloved tomatoes/ corn/ peppers/ strawberries/ bananas/ grapefruit/ coconuts I plan on growing.
Let the guessing begin!
