    .........when you have a flat of seedlings come up and only one, in the whole flat looks like it's on steroids while ALL the others look like they're anemic, compared to it. 20180922_165417-1.jpg

    The ugly duckling? This should be interesting. Tie a ribbon on it so you don't lose track.

    David: You are lucky that they have all germinated. Some have to go to the fridge to be chilled for months and some have to be smoked .. At least they have come up. I love those unfussy and responsive ones!

    They're Brussels Sprouts. I will follow up with it's progressive comparison with the others.

    Don't be surprised if it isn't a brussel sprout. It is probably not the same plant as the others because of the fuzzy hairy stem. You should be able to tell when the second set of true leaves show. Could be a different variety. Seed packets often have strange things in them. I once planted yellow crookneck squash and had a few luffa gourds in the bunch.

    I had wondered if that was what it was..... NOT a Brussels Sprout, being TOTALLY different in appearance, down to the shape and size of the seed leaves. Gonna "baby" it to maturity.

    Agree with Chuck. Don't think the hairy one is a sprout!

    I would guess it is still a brassica, probably a brocolli.

    May be.......but I, also, have a flat of broccoli seedlings and they look more like the B.S. seedlings than the one "in question".....course, it could be a different kind of broccoli, too.........

    Since the sun's path has moved further to the south.... FULL sun is almost nonexistent on the raised beds, sooooo....the undetermined Schwarzenegger plant will have a pot all to itself so it CAN be placed in FULL sun. Determined to see just what this plant turns out to be......it DEFINITELY is not developing like the other Brussels sprouts seedlings. 20180929_101424-1.jpg

    Well I suspect a jumper seed then. I noticed today when I was seeding the fall garden that the dried seeds had a mind of their own as to where they were going as they came out of that little bag. Must be true at the seed nursery too.

    If I didn't know better I'd swear it is a watermelon. Google watermelon leaf images and see if anything looks familiar.
