The plant kingdom is just as fascinating as (us) animals. Did you know that the slimy substance surrounding tomato seeds is a germination retardant? After all, a warm moist place like the inside of a tomato would be perfect for germination. And the mother plant doesn't want that, LOL.

Quote from: Mike Cl on December 08, 2022, 12:35:33 PMThe current weather/climate in my area is crazy. I have two myers lemon trees that don't quite know what to do. One tree has buds that usually happen in the spring, but no lemons. The other has both, buds and lemons. The large (30 ft) regular lemon has both buds and probably 100 lemons on it. The Iris is sprouting. A couple of roses just put out a new batch of buds with a couple of flowers. It's like the plants are confused--they don't know if it's winter or spring. It just occurred to me that maybe the current growing zone is in the process of changing for good--have to look into it. If that is the case, then a large part of CA will be impacted and not for the good.
