Morning glory mystery

By Penny Stine

I planted morning glories, runner beans and corn in a little planting bed last year where I also had an old farm implement. I hoped the vining plants would climb up the rusty potato digger and around the corn, creating a charming site. Instead I got a jungle. So I moved the potato digger to a bigger space, vowed not to plant corn and runner beans together and decided to dig up any morning glories that sprouted and put them somewhere else, figuring that this tiny little plot would be a perfect place for lemon cucumbers rather than the morning glory/corn/beans mess that was there last year.

Someone told me that morning glories reseeded themselves every year, so I’ve been checking the dirt, hoping to find some that I could dig up and move. I finally found them, just not where I expected. 
At first, I figured they were something else, since I know I planted something (Chinese cabbage, kale or quinoa) around that area.

 

 

Then I realized I didn’t plant anything in the rocks, those really are morning glory sprouts and this is the spot where I dumped all the overgrown vines and plants when I pulled them out of the garden last fall, since I didn’t have a compost bin yet.

 

No telling what else may sprout…
