Update on the Garden – My Plants are Still Alive!

About a month and a half ago, in an effort to follow Michael Pollan and Michelle Obama’s advice on the benefits of gardening to health, I planted some seeds in my backyard, in two clay pots.  The identity of these seeds have been long forgotten, but I’ve faithfully watered them everyday on my way back and forth from the washing machine in my garage.  I’m not much of a gardener, so I’m thrilled I haven’t killed these plants yet!

I’ve been wondering what I’d planted for weeks now, and whatever they are, they’ve finally bloomed!

I purchased the seeds at Target, so my next step is to go back to the store and look through the seed section to find the plants that match what’s sprouted.

In the meantime, what do you think they are?
