Birdhouse Gourd Seedling
This is a Birdhouse Gourd seedling a few days after I sowed the seed. Clearly I should not have started these so early and maybe not indoors at all.
I'm having flashbacks of the first year I started seeds indoors. Not knowing any better I sowed green bean seeds in coir pellets. They grow ferociously up into the fluorescent light fixtures before I finally gave up and composted them all. That year I learned that green beans should be direct sowed and gained a new understanding of the fairytale Jack and the Beanstalk so I did not consider it a complete failure.
