    I planted my morning glories in their summer boxes and they are doing well. I soak the seeds from the packets for a day or two and as I was sorting the seeds a much smaller round seed became obvious. Not wanting to pass up a freebie much less a mystery I planted the seed. Usually the first two leaves are pretty mundane but these had a shape and as I don't recognize it though it might be a flower that prefers basking in the summer sun. As the season progresses it will become obvious but for now it is labeled 'Mystery seed in with morning glories.' Any guesses?

    Mmmm pretty hard to tell at this stage Jerry but it may be a Colocasia. Keep us updated with its progress won't you?

    Looks a little like a bleeding heart seedling....but they are just a tad bluer... It will be fun to discover what it is in time.

    Well...... It looks like it could be a broccoli seedling to me. They are smallish and round, too. Keep us posted

    Did you save your own morning glory seeds from last year ? If so, it was likely something growing in with them last year. I will be curious to see what it turns out to be also.

    Ann, the seed was in a Burpee seed envelope that had never been opened. The plant has developed a second leaf, be it a small one, one nonetheless. I will take a picture tomorrow.
