Today, I found this little guy in the drain of my kitchen sink.
It was a lone black-eyed pea that had made it through dinner time and sprouted in the midst of dirty dishes.
Talk about perseverance… no soil, no fertilizer, no attention and he had been COOKED for goodness’ sake. He had one inch roots that were already reaching down the pipe and I guess they would have kept going had I not plucked him out. I think I will plant this guy just out of sheer curiosity.
Though, it doesn’t seem like he needs my help.
