I have been coddling this parsley plant all winter, trying to make sure it was happy, not really succeeding. It was in kind of a small pot, but it looked like it was dying anyway, so I just kind of played with it , keeping it barely alive.
And today, I realized, this is what I was really growing.
Why Kerrit? Because those are my favorite riding pants. And they come with a packet of carrot seeds. Seriously! They're so clever. Cuz you know, horses love carrots so much. I planted them all but they didn't seem to do anything. Except for this little guy.
I got a new pair for Christmas and they came with the carrot packet, so I just planted them the other day. We'll see how they do! And I'll be more aware of what I'm planting so I know what a parsley plant and a carrot plant both look like!
FOLLOW UP #1: I planted those Kerrit carrots and lo and behold- they're sprouting!!! Seriously! Pictures to follow this weekend.
FOLLOW UP #2: I solved the mystery.
