The gardening bug bit me in early April and this is what I have been trying to grow for the past few months.
coriander seeds sprouting
more coriander sprouts in early May
Chilli took a long time to show up
meanwhile, mint was growing roots
finally mint is transported to pot
coriander has a growth spurt
and some more
and finally there are the coriander leaves
and look who’s here… after about a month, I see chilli leaves
and more….enough to make chutney!
and it keeps coming more everyday
mint spreads its roots and is scrambling all over inside the pot
some real growth of the chilli plant
this is the latest pic from a few days ago. Chilli has come a long way and soon there will be flowers!
Mint multiplied over summer and its runners were all over the small pot so I had to transfer it to a bigger pot. Now it’s happy and contained in my balcony!
