As most of my friends know – I try to grow things, and don’t very often succeed. I have big plans however for my own vegetable harvest next year out the back of our student house! And in Oxfam this week I found some little ‘Weird seed pods’ which is a little kit to grow your own plants from (and they were half price) so I bought Mimosa, thinking that it’s a lovely scent and would be pretty for my room next year. Assuming ‘weird’ referred to the funny-shaped box you plant them in, I was surprised to find out that it’s actually a ‘sensitive’ plant, which retreats when you touch it. How sweet!

And the best thing is that a few days after planting them (and THEN reading that you should soak the seeds for a few days first to help them germinate) they have already sprouted! Ah, growing things is so exciting. Life! I have created life! Hmm, I can’t be as abominable as I thought…
