We had to move all the potted plants inside last Saturday afternoon. This included all of the SeedGROW plants and my baby shrubs. Woo. That sucked. And we didn’t even get enough storm to make it worth the effort. Better safe than sorry, I suppose.
I’d also started some ‘Purple Petra’ Basil, which is very interesting to grow. It’s not part of the SeedGROW project, but it was basil, so I thought I’d include it. I sowed five plants (multiple seeds) and just look at the variation:
(Plant in the middle is obvious. Plant to the right is from the same seed packet. Almost no purple at all)
And more variation (Sorry for the craptastic, picture):
Just because you have the same genetic material, doesn’t mean that you and your siblings are going to look the same. This is one of those real-life genetics lessons. 🙂
I’m growing with the SeedGROW project. Thanks to Reene’s Garden for the seeds.
