A friend gave me some marigold seeds. That's something new to try, and I'm told it keeps deer away - not that I have a real deer problem here in the city.
The last time we went to the grocery store, #2 found a bell pepper with an unusual shape. Normally bell pepper have three or four "feet" on the bottom. This one came to a point instead. We bought it and today he ate it and saved the seeds. We want to plant them to see if the resulting pepper plants will grow normal peppers, or weird pointed peppers (is the deformity genetic, or aesthetic?).
I also was able to work with a couple raspberries to try to get some seeds out of them. I'm not sure if raspberries can be grown from seed. Everywhere I look it seems that people use cuttings instead. It's worth a try anyway - nothing to lose if they don't work out, but we might be able to get something new if they do come out right.
I planted the seeds that fell out of the eggplants as I was rinsing them on Wednesday. I think I ruined them though, as I had salted the eggplant (as called for in the recipe). We'll see.
No progress with the lettuce head yet, but the onions continue to grow.
