I don't use the laundry room sink every day. I think it'd been two or three days since I last used it. When I went out there this morning, what did I see in the sink but a bean sprout GROWING out of the drain!
I don't know how to feel! Amazed at the bounty and plenty of Brazil? Embarrassed that I have plants growing wild in my apartment? Inspired to add beans to my collection of potted herbs and vegetables?
So far, I've got little peppers, green onions, and mint. Don't give me too much credit: they were already sprouted when I bought them -- I've just kept them watered and changed their pots and soil once they got bigger. But now they all need bigger pots, and I don't really have the space.
Either way, the bean growing in the sink is a wonderful excuse to put up a Joanna Newsom song on the blog.
Have you had any mysterious/embarrassing things growing in your home? I sure hope I'm not the only one.
