I deasheaded the #jimsonweed and removed all the seed pods to make the plant give me more flowers. These pods are immature but there were still enough of them to fill a one quart pot. I'm not intending to grow this again next year, so I don't want it reseeding itself. 15 Aug 2020 #jimsonweed #thornapple #seedpod #ouch

One thing that I discovered about garden chores is that I come upon moments of wonder and beauty and discovery that I wouldn't have encountered otherwise: such as the ruffly cups on the undersides of these spiky pods. I love how they catch the light.

It's been a while since I posted a photo of this #jimsonweed that I grew #fromseed this spring. I'm still mad at it for not being the datura I was expecting. However, it is officially the first plant I grew from seed and got a flower from, so I guess I'm not too terribly mad at him after all. The flowers are still pretty even though they're not quite what I expected. 15 Aug 2020 #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo

Finally planted the #datura in the raised bed; hopefully it'll spread out its roots and grow BIG and give me lots more flowers. #devilstrumpet #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo 8 June 2020

The eleven white #datura-seedlings are pretty tall now, maybe 3-4 inches. This variety seems to respond to light much more than the other variety. These sprouted while my grow light was further away from the pot, and I think that's why they're so tall. 11 May 2020 #devilstrumpet #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #datura

It's amazing to me that this big #seedling came from inside that tiny seed. 1 May 2020 #datura #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo

Perhaps a little leggy? (I lowered the light in the grow tent so it's about 8 inches closer to the pots.) 29 Apr 2020 #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #datura

Twenty four hours later and there are 7 sprouts. The tallest is 2 inches! In one day!! Every time I see seeds sprout I can't believe it'll happen, and when it does I'm in awe. 27 Apr 2020 #datura #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo

Datura seeds sprouting! I think these #sprouts might be from the seeds from the white #datura plant in my friend's apartment parking lot that I collected in 2012. (I remember which side of the pot they're in.) 25 Apr 2020 #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #germination

12 Apr 2020 soaked some #doubleblackcurrentswirl #datura seeds (sent to me by dearest @cyndi) in some water overnight and put a bunch of them in this pot along with some white datura seeds I'd collected years ago. I get on my hands and knees daily to examine the surface of the dirt and search for sprouts. Nothing yet. Sigh. #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #seedstarting #grownfromseed #ihope

Cataloguing -- @cyndi sent me these #datura-blackcurrentswirl-seeds and since I haven't gotten my act together to start them inside yet, I figured I'd just throw a few straight in the ground and see what happens. 15 Mar 2020
