Name that seedling quiz, part 3

Okra seedling

Cucumber seedling

Sunflower seedling

These were seriously hard --- I had to look up one of them to make sure I had it right.  From top to bottom, the seedlings are okra (notice the hairs around the edges), cucumber (but if you guessed a squash or any other relative, you were close enough), and sunflower.  If you named them all, you're an expert!

This post is part of our Name That Seedling Quiz lunchtime series.  Read all of the entries:

I love these seedling quizzes! As part of our "recession-proof income diversification" (to quote yourself in your Ecotourism post!) we cranked our garden up tenfold and rented a stand at our local Farmer's Market. Now, I've always been more into our animals, though I totally appreciate what our garden offers us and I willingly harvest and put away. But this year I am working much more with the planting aspect of things than I usually do. I will be SO embarrassed if I can't name the seedlings by sight at our first plant sale! I need more quizzes like this! : ) I was proud to get sunflower right since we have about ten billion of them sitting about 15 feet away from me at this very moment. Thanks for such a cool site!

I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying them! I was hoping they weren't too silly for you all. :-) I hope to hear more about your farmer's market endeavor too -- it sounds like a great project!
