Compost Rescue!

Post  Scorpio Rising on 5/5/2016, 9:11 pm

OK, I pulled 2 things out of my compost pile and planted them....had it been only 1, I would not be posting.  However, 2 weeks ago,  I went out to put some stuff on the pile and low and behold...a gorgeous Swiss Chard Bright lights yellow sprout rarin' to go!  I yanked it out and stuck it in the SFG....

And then this past weekend....I go out to the compost pile.  A potato plant!  And I pulled on it, it is a chunk of a Yukon Gold that has decided it will LIVE.  Yep, planted.  cheers

I really do hope that you treated it gently.  Think of all the tiny hairs on those roots. Very Happy
