We have a garden at my parents' house and when I was five we sowed carrot seeds. I looked at the package of the seeds and what I saw I thought were sausages so I asked my mom: are we going to sow sausages too? she answered those are just thick carrots....

I used to believe that you bought your grass from a turf accountant. We needed a new lawn and mum and dad seemed really perplexed where to buy it from. I couldn't understand why. Dad used to spend so much time in teh turf accountants on a Saturday I assumed he was an expert!

one of my first memories is of my mom pointing out poision ivy to me and telling me to stay away from it. I kept looking where she was pointing, but couldn't see it - I was looking for an animal of some kind, not a plant.

When I was little I was scared of spider plants, cause I thought they had spiders in them. And actually . . . they often do! =P

Long grass with black seeds were really ant hotels, and the seeds were sleeping ants.

When I was at infants school one of the first things we did was grow mustard cress to make our own sandwiches. I never understood how they got the mustard into the cress while it was growing.
Similarly I always thought "egg and cress" sandwiches were "egg cress" and that was a different type of cress which they put eggs in while it was growing.
I still don't really understand mustard cress.

I used to hear doves singing outside where I grew up. But for some unexplained reason, I always believed that it was the clovers making that noise. I never understood how simple grass could make a noise like that!

I used to think that grass only grew during the time people were standing on it. How else could I understand the shoe-shaped tufty bits in the lawn at home?

When I was a kid someone told me that there was peanut butter in the blossom parts of clover. I believed them and was always trying to pull it apart to find the hidden peanut butter.

when i was little, i somehow made the connection that flowers are pretty, so eating them would make me pretty too. i even told my best friend this and we would eat flower petals whenever she came over...
