Who are you?.... And where did you come from?

While out watering last evening I found these sprouted in the garden. Much to my suprise… right smack in the middle of my Vulcan Swiss Chard. This morning I pulled it all out. Seems to be either squash/cukes/melons and some sort of grain/grass.
The real mystery is what/who buried it there? Some little animal found a score of seeds and put them away for safe keeping. Hehee, fertile garden soil was not a good spot for safe keeping. My suspicion is a chipmunk. There are a number of them living in my neighbor’s firewood pile. Won’t it be surprised when it comes back for it’s seeds?
I wish I had time for the squash/cukes/melons to do their things. But alas, it’s only 49 days until frost… and my swiss chard and spinach would NOT appreciate the company.
