The Windowsill



Our windowsill has been the place for our plants throughout the warmer weather. Now that the weather is colder those plants have been moved back to the desk and we have some more important ones soaking up what little sunlight there is (because of pollution, of course).

We inherited some lovely Solomon's Seal just after we came. We dug up most of it to make tea, but saved some roots to replant. One of them came up and so we have the beginnings of another plant. Unfortunately, we won't be able to take it back to North America - we'll pass it on to someone who will use it here. The other plants you see in the photo are wonderful basil sent from Susan's friend Anna of the botanical gardens in New York City and her mother. Thanks so much! We should soon be picking lovely leaves to add flavour to our cooking.

I'm glad you're enjoying my mom's basil seeds! Maybe I can send you some mozarella seeds to go with them.

Can we grow cheeze on our windowsill? That would be awesome!

Oh, and we have mold spores just waiting for the perfect host (other than our walls) - we could have moldy cheese! Perhaps we could call it Korgonzola?

Or Gordonzola!
