I used to call these humble soil buckets we have at the backyard our weed buckets. But that was then, when it was indeed only weed growing in these buckets. I call them a one-time-wonder buckets now because one of the buckets especially, kept sprouting wonderful things, surprising things that I wasn’t even aware being planted in first place. Hubby and the kids are the planting optimists, they believe in little seeds. And random little seeds that they planted did grow.
Last week some strawberries started to pop out in one bucket. I thought someone dropped a strawberry accidentally from the deck, that’s why I was shocked to find out they were the real thing when I was about to pick it up with the intention to throw it away. I didn’t know we had strawberry seeds let alone planted them in our bucket. It’s pretty exciting, actually!
Other things that ‘magically’ grew in the past were some beanstalk and one big sun flower. They were mysteriously ‘disappeared’ (or plucked out?) soon after enjoying some happy days under the sun. Those were nice surprises…We are excitedly waiting for the greenies to turn red now before we pick them up for consumption.
What’s next? Did I hear someone say pumpkin? 😉
