My guess is -
the spiky green ones are sweetcorn and the round purple ones are purple basil.

Am I right?!

If you mean the purple ones - they look like Amaranthus to me - or Love Lies Bleeding

purple basil and corn, I hope it is corn and not spider wort.

My guess is corn

I was going to say spiderwort also, but in your potager it more likely is corn. And those first leaves are certainly basil, the half moons are distinctive and so cute. I love purple basil in salads with the other greens. Yum!

I'm just waiting to find out. ;-)

I'm such a cynic: Crabgrass.

But not so cynical to hazard a guess of purple basil for the second mystery plant.

What do I win?!?!??

Aunt Debbi/kurts mom said...

Got something for you over at my blog.

They are sprouting seeds, yes they are. I am so right. What did I win? ;-)

Gail said...

I'm here late after everyone else has guessed and just want to know who won and what did they win!
