My housemate, who tends a garden in our backyard along with a few pots inside the house by her window, recently discovered a volunteer sprout in one of the indoor plant pots. But when she pulled up the “weed,” she discovered it had taken root from an acorn! A tiny little oak tree had developed inside of her room!
Impressed by its tenacity, we placed it in a jar with some water. Maybe we’ll plant it outside somewhere one of these days.
