Remember back in July when I received two tiny little wasabi seedlings from Four Seasons Herbs? (If not, click here to take a look).
Well, they are absolutely thriving and I’m a very happy plant-mummy! I usually kill everything I grow so I’m extra pleased that I’ve kept these little beauties alive. I seriously cannot wait for them to grow big enough so I can have a wasabi party (I mean, pig-out on wasabi).
I just love the way they look too – those lovely deep indentations in the leaves and the bright shiny green colour – it really lifts my spirits.
In other balcony news, thank goodness for the magic of Spring time. It has brought my chives back to life.
Around this time last year I planted chive seeds and they started to sprout almost immediately. I was proudly cutting chives in mid October for my salads but then on November 8th I gave birth to my daughter and she took priority over the chives. Hence the chives died. At least I kept my baby alive!
As you can see they withered and died (note the yellow/white stringy bits), but this year I have kept on with watering them and ta-da, they came back to life! They even seem thicker and healthier than before, go figure.
I’m hoping to add a few more herbs and vegetables to my balcony in the coming weeks. Are you growing anything?
