I'm a big believer in maximizing the utility of anything before putting it back to the environment. Needless to say, I recycle papers and reuse plastic bags, etc. Once in a while, when I use vegetables in the kitchen, I'd imagine the possibilities of growing them in my garden. Therefore, I save seeds.
The other day, I remembered some that I kept since last year. Not thinking much of the season, I planted them and was instantly rewarded with the nice little faces of these sprouts. How cute they are (remember, I'm a photographer that sees cuteness or beauty in most anything)?
Do I remember what I planted? No. Would I worry if I'd get fruits from them? Not really, although it'll be nice. I don't worry about the end results as much as I want to enjoy the process and make sure to put in the due effort (Hey, I "single-handedly" brought these lives into this world. I'd need to be responsible.). With anything, I believe that if I do enough of right things, the positive energy will go around and eventually come as rewards as I least expect it.
What do you think? Would love to hear your thoughts.
P.S. I am curious though how this plant will turn out to be. I know it's a squash type. So, would it be a pumpkin, a cucumber, a winter melon or something else that I happened to stash the seeds away last year? Anybody with a green thumb can tell? :-)
