While working on another project last January, I saw this pot full of grass seedlings,..looking so lush and full. So I took a photo.
This is the pot that for the last few years has held hyacinth bulbs and off season, I keep it in my potting area just waiting for April. It has reliably bloomed with Easter egg color flowers the last four years with little care.
Last April, I took a closer picture and noticed a few different blooms,…miner’s lettuce!
Now back to January, I thought, hmmm, I’d keep an eye on these ‘grass seedlings.’ Wondered what kind of grass, or weeds they’d be. Oh, you can guess, right??
Yes, looking down at the base of the ‘grass’ I did think, ‘Are these miner lettuce seedlings?’ Couldn’t be…growing so thickly together? And the miner’s lettuce growing aroun d the pot were on the ground, but no, there were those few in the pot last year….
Yesterday, I looked again, to see the first few really ‘miner’s lettuce looking leaves.’ Yes, that’s definitely what they are. Now what to do? I’m thinking of where I cn tensplant a few plugs with out disturbing the bulbs, now starting to show.
