My evil plan is working!

On "that other site," I mentioned that I had secretly sewn some seeds in the empty planters near the Pharmacy at Kaiser, in Martinez CA, where I pick up my prescription meds. I think I planted some corn early in the Summer, as well as some green beans and squash. More recently, I planted some snow peas. To my dismay, no doubt due to the drought, nothing ever grew--until my visit this past Tuesday. When I visited this past Tuesday, I saw what were clearly several snow pea plants, about 2" tall, and what may have been three squash plants, about the same height. I laughed my evil laugh, and thanked the Weather Gods for the recent rains. If you choose not to associate with me because of my devious clandestine activities, I understand. But my hope is that by Spring, the folks at Kaiser will have beautiful squash and snow pea plants, and have no idea where they came from. Do you think there's a little juvenile delinquent lurking in all of us?

I enjoy growing things. The snow peas on my balcony are still doing well.

I hope no one pulls them out thinking they are weeds. Are you the new female Johnny Appleseed?

What a great idea, you can come by my house on the sly and plant anything you want too I think there is an inner child in all of us, If it makes you happy there is noting wrong with sharing seeds. I hope whoever harvests the bounty enjoys it and actually eats the veggies.

It seemed strange to me that they had a cute patio surrounded by little planters that went unused. I know I had to do something juvenile and delinquent. It's raining again today. I hope things continue to grow out there!

Are you certain that is a Snow Pea? It looks very much like a Triffid to me.

What is a triffid? It sounds like a cousin to a Star Trek creature that gets hungrier the more it easts.

@TheHorse The Day of the Triffids was a science fiction novel by John Wyndham. The Triffid was an alien plant that landed and could move around. The one that you are thinking of was a Tribble.

You are such a good "evil". That's a wonderful plan. I wish you can do mischievous action with my garden, as my garden is lacking of beautiful plants right now. The people at Kaiser will be so grateful for the plants.

Maybe I'll sneak some liquid Miracle Gro into a Gatorade container next time I'm out there, and give the soil a boost.

I have thrown seeds of the Mirabilis Jalapa in the area in front of our grocery store. Those flowers are colorful and last all the summer, but they are pretty invasive. I want to see what happens next spring.

Heh heh. I hope they grow! We should start an "occupy" movement that's actually productive and not silly, like the "occupy" movements in the US. If we call it "Green Lives Matter" we'd probably get in trouble, though.

LOL, sorry but that rocks. Like you said, I could just imagine people thinking "oh wow that's so odd?"...it's like hearing some kind of odd random late night confession from someone who had too much cider. Or like something your grandmother admits doing when she was a kid and was just telling you to behave, and then she let's it slip out that she randomly planted squash somewhere as a prank.
