Sweet Seeds!

Not all the seeds I grow are collected locally. Many I order through mail.

Some kinds need to be sown as soon as possible.

Like these ones:

Look at those beauties. If I put these outside overnight they would be gone the following morning. Critters love them.

But you don't want to do that anyways. Here's the little pots prepared. One per seed. Some like to sow them in one big container, then remove them as they sprout, then put them in seperate containers. Once these sprout I will have to plant each in longer, larger pots to accomodate the tap root sent down. These are just sorts of germination pots for now. Note they are by the heat register. I'm pretty sure you don't want to apply too much heat though.

Then you plunk those seeds, pointy tip down, into the soil, about three quarters the seed length covered:

Tommorrow I will cover each with cheap plastic sandwich baggies. Don't have any right now.

So, what seeds are they? Try and guess. The correct answerer receives a million dollars. Okay, you get nothing but satisfaction, of the kind procured when you get an answer correct on Jeopardy.


you want hints?

Just don't get yourself too riddled over it. Doesn't a thesaurus sound like a dinosaur from the Jurassic period?
