The Bad Seeds

***

Do you see anything growing in these three pots of dirt?

Nope, I sure don’t.

I have been trying to grow something for months, and so far have had no luck at all.

First of all, I lost my seeds. I had a bunch of seed packets in a ziplock bag, and it’s gone. I haven’t been to any kind of store to buy any more seeds.

I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find them.

So, I’ve just been sticking any kind of seed I can find into these little pots in the hopes that something will come up.

Let me count the number of seeds that are in there.

There are some bird seeds (variety)

There are some bell pepper seeds

There are lemon and cherry seeds

There are tree seeds

There are some apple seeds

Maybe there are some more, but I forget. Looks like something or other would sprout. I keep them watered, and after a few weeks I stick another kind of seed in there. Nothing …

They are all bad seeds. haha!

  1. I planted some scarlett runner beans I found in my cupboard. Never came up. BUT! Weeds started to grow. I figured if thats where they want to be it’s a gift! Now I have 3 at least 2 feet tall and growing! LOL I love it.
    OH! and a vine is starting. Its climbing on a small trellis I found. I don’t what it is either BUT Heck who cares!
    I now have plants on my balcony!!!!!!!! YEAH!
    So don’t give up on them. 😊👍

  2. It took over a dozen attempts to get some tomatoes going, 9 for runner beans and even they’re sluggish, and as for our second lot o radishes, nothing, zilch, nada, so you are not alone.

    • Thanks, Di! Glad you at least got some started after so many tries. Makes me wonder why some work and some don’t. Give them some dirt, water, & sunlight and you’d think they’d pop right out. 🙂

      • Our soil is lousy as it’s clay based, so Hubby has spent hours digging and mixing in good compost and we are now doing our own. We’ll get there……….. I have some lovely toms coming along now, and the swedes, sprouts, parsnips and carrots are looking promising too. We’ve lost the peppers and cucumber though.

      • Yes, we used to live where the soil was very much clay, so we too added a lot of topsoil to the space we’d dug up for the garden. We did get some great tomatoes that year. It’s been several years since we had a garden where we live now. Sorry you peppers and cucumbers didn’t make it. 🙂

  3. I think we are twins separated at birth! I have had the same experience but doing this outside. Almost everything that grew was finished off by deer and rabbits. I do have one good seed , though! Just one out of SO many! I had no idea what it was going to be. Now I can tell it’s a weed.

  4. I can never throw a avocado seed away. I stick it in a pot somewhere. Sometimes they even grow. Long, tall, and not very pretty but I feel satisfied. I don’t know what happens to them in the end. But I don’t have any right now. 😀

    • Thanks, Oneta! I sure think twice before tossing out avacado seeds or any other seed, and sometimes try to grow them. Having no luck this year, though. I’ve grown an avacado a few times and they’ve done pretty good. The best was one that got really tall, so we stuck it out in the flower bed, and it continued to grow very tall. Then we had to move, so a friend dug it up to take to their home. 🙂

  5. Do you have a heating pad? Heat will make them sprout. I say that but I planted a tray of 36 tomato seeds and used heating pads on them and only 5 sprouted. 4 of those seeds have grown into really nice tomato plants. Good luck!
