Marigold explosion

After my excitement about the first ever marigold seedling last spring and the subsequent transformation to a small marigold bush, imagine my excitement with what’s in the pot at the moment – an absolute explosion of seedlings! Just in one half of the pot mind you.

I discovered when I pulled out the one dead plant (that grew from the aforementioned seedling and bush) that the dead flowers are actually all new seeds so they all fell down into the dirt as I was getting it out. So I used my tiny apartment gardening fork to scratch them into the dirt, even though it’s not the recommended planting time according to the back of the marigold packet, and wa la! More plants. Hopefully they’ll do the full cycle but there might be too many in there. Might have to transplant to the other pot …
