As my my interest in cooking grows, I guess it's no surprise that I've started planting herbs and vegetables again.
|Surely This Calls For Flag Planting|
Years ago, spring onions were a regular feature on the kitchen window sill. I had also planted the pak-choi in a small corner out at the balcony.
Then, office work consumed my life. The aspect of "stopping to smell the roses" was lost. I remember the flurry of activities, I remember feeling accomplished. But deep down, I have always asked myself if there was more to life than four walls and a fat paycheck. If I could control my want of clothes and more clothes, jewelery and fine dinners, my lifestyle would have been more balanced. This was my past.
I am catching up on the quieter moments in life now.... and it is magical. Oops, I've gone off topic!
Coriander, parsley and cili padi (bird's eye chili). These seeds were planted several days ago.
|Can you see it? The cili padi (bird's eye chili) seed has landed!|
Two days in, I saw a shoot from the pot where I had gently buried the cili padi seeds.
|That is fast!|
Hours after, more shoots sprouted out of the ground.
Considering how quick and easy it was to get the cili padi going, I know that we're going to be the best of friends. I may just flood my garden with chili plants one day and pamper them with the best fertiliser like a proud parent would.
It's ridiculous that I stalk my plant pot every couple of hours ~ no sign of coriander or parsley to date!
