Confession, as they say is good for the soul, but still hard to do.  Confession on a blog in anonymity is somewhat easier.  So here it goes. Some seeds of a plant new to the Automatic Garden, were planted in a large container.  Happily, they germinated and grew.  The small plants were then carefully transplanted into separate containers full of fresh potting soil and fertilizer.  They thrived and grew really well.  Meanwhile, back in the large container, new plants emerged from the same exact location.  UH-OH.


It turns out that the nurtured plants were WEEDS!  Completely embarrassing.  I would love to hear if any of you have any weed confessions.  Maybe I would not feel so bad.

    haha – Yes, this reminds me of the first time I ever tried gardening. I planted some seeds, then weeded them all out. ALL of them! I kept wondering when my flowers were going to come up! (Those little things didn’t look like flowers to me – they looked like weeds. I’m still an aggressive weeder!) It didn’t dawn on me that I had actually pulled them all up until years later. Live and learn!

    I brought home a plant along a roadside all the way from Corpus Christi…only to find it growing in cracks in front of our church the next Sunday. Boy, was I blushing to find out how carefully i had cared for that weed our entire vacation! David/:0)
