I was so ecstatic to see that my lemon cucumber seeds had sprouted after the first rain shower and then this morning I noticed how after the second rain shower those sprouts had gotten a little larger.
In addition, I must have dropped a seed in the corner of the bed because I noticed that it too had sprouted since yesterday.
I think I will carefully relocate that loose seed this evening because, guess what??? One of my neighbors gave me some cantaloupe plants that she started from seed! #randomkindness
I've never tried growing a fruit before but there's a first time for everything, right?
In other garden goodness, I finally planted my mosquito plant. I really want a citronella plant, but this one will have to do? What's the difference? A mosquito plant's scientific name is "Pelargonium Citrosa" or "Pelargonium Graveolens" and does not contain the real citronella oil. A true citronella plant is actually a clump grass whose scientific name is "Cymbopogon Winterianus" or "Cymbopogon Nardus". So, I'll be on the lookout for the real thing, even if it means ordering. In the meantime, here's the imposter that I planted. Smells lovely.
And my geranium bloomed.
