Look at this baby parsley! A friend from the gardening club gave out the seeds, which she received several years ago from a friend whose great grandmother brought them out from Italy. When I planted my front yard lemon tree (the one with the lemons I showed a few days earlier) I scattered some parsley seeds under it. Imagine how lovely if this parsley from Italy continues to self seed forever after in my yard. How cool would that be? I have parsley elsewhere but I love the story behind these seeds. (And I still have some seeds yet to be planted.)
The garlic and spring onions are going well. I had the poor little spring onions seedlings in a wheelbarrow on my front porch but they never took off. Once I took pity on them and put them in the front right styrofoam box they’ve taken off. I use them in demos for the garlic and herb dip and I really hate buying spring onions, so I think I’ll pop up to the nursery and buy some more seedlings. With a trip to Hong Kong to go for… I’m going to need LOTS of spring onions!
Actually, the beetroot plants in the background are also from the same gardening visit. They were struggling a bit but now look very healthy after all the rain we’ve been having. Say what you like, I really think plants do better with rain rather than tap water.
Is rhubarb meant to die down over winter or have I killed my little baby seedling that I nurtured for months?
Making bread. Mmmmmmmm.
