windowsill allotment - update

My little trays of seeds germinated and grew amazingly fast. Here they are just one week later.

These are the broccoli seeds; the beetroot seedlings are a little smaller, but a beautiful rose pink colour.
one week later

I also sprouted seeds in a jar - again these are the broccoli seeds -

- and atop a slice of toast with houmous -

-or adorning a salad.

 Ok, so they tasted much the same as standard cress which you can buy in any supermarket, but it was fun growing them and a reminder that spring is on its way.
The temperature may only be 4c outside, but with the sun streaming through the dining room window and a summery salad for lunch, I can dream of warmer days to come!


  1. Ooooh! Do wish I could eat cheese - that mozzarella and tomato salad looks mouthwateringly good.
