Wait, wait, me, too, me, too!

There was still this tray of half a dozen apricot kernels sitting there and most had clearly declared they were not living up to their potential or, frankly, at all, but there were a few that looked like, welllll, maybe if you wished hard enough.

So still she persisted.

I realized Saturday they’d almost dried out while I was sick in bed after my second shot–but not quite. Just a bit of water couldn’t hurt. Right? (How long have I been doing this while those others have been moved into bigger digs twice now?)

I could not believe my eyes today. The white on the back of that seed half on the right is mold; that thing was supposed to be dead but the inside kept insisting on being green.

Leaves! A stem! Look, and an actual root down there! Those were not there yesterday, but they are today!

And there might even be another one soon. But we’ll see.

My second one didn’t make it either; it got to this point in your picture on the left and then croaked. I’m glad yours are happy, and I hope they grow up big and strong!

Hope springs eternal! That’s amazing! You’re going to have apricots all over the place!

My first one didn’t make it. Got lovely and plump and I was hopeful. They it just flattened out and got mouldy. Second one is hanging inside far. Might be ok with more light coming now.

Third one is still in storage in the fridge. Going to wait another month and try that one.

I feel badly I couldn’t will it into being. ?
