Popcorn Party

I threw a kernel of popcorn that didn't make it into the pan into the scrap bowl. When I went to dump it in the compost pile a couple of days later, it had sprouted. Who would've thunk it? So I stuck it in the ground by the gooseberry bushes and forgot about it. One day I noticed a big ole piece of grass growing in my gooseberries and went to pull it when I remembered the popcorn. So I left it alone. I didn't expect anything because there isn't any other plants for it to cross pollinate with, but it's actually forming an ear! If it actually makes popcorn, I may have to try a whole row next year!

How fun! As I ate my one lonely tomato tonight I thought - next year MORE plants!
