Anyway, trying to improve the state of my garden, a week or so ago I dumped last year's compost pile on my garden and mixed it in. I thought if I couldn't get more sun, at least I could improve the condition of the soil. The compost wasn't completely done, but I didn't see why that would matter much under the circumstances.
Much to my surprise, I now have vegetable(?) seedlings growing where I dumped the compost. Can anybody out there in blogland identify these? (Update: Could the first one be watermelon?)
