The Control Group

Check out the Forsythia in full bloom!

A week or so ago The Husband planted spinach in the raised garden table in the yard. I decided to start a control group in the house to see which would sprout faster and grow quicker. Well contrary to what the photo shows my black thumb (because it sure isn’t green) killed off the first sprout. So this is the second sprout which is about a day behind the ones in the yard. I’m sure I’ll kill this one off long before it’s ready for serving.

    I find it difficult to keep sprouts alive once they get to the size of yours. I wonder if they need more sunlight to get them hardier faster. I would definitely need grow lights if I were to start seeds inside.

    I don’t even try! It’s not a black thumb, it’s no thumb at all. LOL!

  3. My kind of forsythia – not out of control, but not pruned to topiary, either – and very yellow!

  4. Think positive! This one is looking OK – maybe it will be a gigantic delicious spinach plant!
