Decomposing pumpkin sprouting California poppies

When our Halloween pumpkins started to get squishy and moldy, I distributed them in pieces throughout the garden to decompose and feed the soil.

And look at what's happening two weeks later.

All that looks like grass are California poppy seedlings!

What a pleasant surprise.

I'm sure the thick morning fog we have had every day this week has helped the growing conditions, as well.
