This Little Seedling

It  Is  A  Mango  Seed   Pod 

  Months ago, I  purchased one of those yellow mangos .  I ate the mango, and saved the seed pod.    Seems you have to actually crack the pod open before you plant the seed .

I’ve tried this before  — but I didn’t know that you had to crack the pod open.    So this time, I opened it up, left it slightly intact.   And then put it in a plastic ziplock bag with a little paper towel and a little water, very little water.  I placed the whole thing on top of the refrigerator –  not far from the window.

I forgot about it for quite some time.    Weeks passed, maybe more, and I went to look at it .  I opened the bag up and drained the water, and took the pod out.

So far, so good.

As it turned out, I honestly can’t remember where I planted the thing.    I have so many flower pots and I didn’t mark the pot.  I have no idea.

Well, time to try again.   Next summer, I will save a few seed pods and try to plant that, one more time.

ARTFROMPERRY I take photographs and tell stories with photographs, . Everything in these photographs is exactly as it is supposed to be. Blurred, from a distance, sharp or not, colors varied from the average. These are not photographic mistakes nor anything to be corrected. These are exactly as I want them to be seen. As a pastime, I produce and direct television programs in parts of New York City, NYS USA UPDATE: Due to covid hitting our city, I temporarily stopped producing television since the studio required that we sign a seemingly illegal covid contract in order to have access to the studio. Considering a lawsuit to get the program back on the air again .
