new growth

by Stacy

My last update was on Wednesday, but I was amused and had to post again.

It looks like my two tiny herb pots that have sprouted are basil and now fennel:

No sign of parsley yet, but it can take up to two weeks to sprout if it grows at all. It is, apparently, notoriously difficult to grow from seed. I will persevere, however.

Not hard to grow from seed? Kale. Tuesday, I planted some kale seeds. Thursday, they sprouted. Today, they look like this:

It’s a good thing I like kale!
My two favorite kale recipes:
Olive Oil and Kale Mashed Potatoes at 101 Cookbooks
Kale Salad with Pecorino and Lemon from TheKitchn

I’m not sure how long it will take the amusement of being able to grow things in fall and winter to wear off. We’ll find out!
