These warm winter days are something like a godsend. Impatient (and bored), I decided to go ahead and plant my parsley plant in a giant terracotta pot from Ikea. Thought while i'm at it, to try to plant my friend's wedding card- You know those new sorts of cards that you're supposed to soak and then plant because they have hidden seeds in them..
I got caught up in Bunnings and bought a few packets of seeds as well- basil and spring onion.

So instead of planging the parsley, I ended up planting the card (which turns into some sort of tree) and the spring onion.

And I was somewhat dubious as to the results considering it's in the middle of winter. (The exact worse time to sow seeds). But this morning I was quite excited by this:

It's exciting to see nature unravelling in its most elegant way. 'Yay, come on little guy... you can do it... grow grOW GROW!!!'

Hmm... Our broccoli and spinach have been popular with bugs and birds but we haven't had the chance to enjoy them yet- hope you have more luck with your greens! :)
