I’m adding that title to my resume.
I mentioned in my last entry about my harvest attempts with culantro (we call it recao) that one of the things I did while I pretended I knew what I was doing was spread the seeds of the plant. I did this all around the three feet pot that houses the three plants my mother gave me.
And magic happened:
That is quite magical. Manfriend (who IS a knowledgable, active farmer -that’s his hobby) says culantro is not easy to nurse, in fact when he saw that he almost fainted. Then he interrogated me about what I did with the seeds because he couldn’t believe I had been able to get sprouts from what looks to be every seed in the world and not just the ones I spread.
I told him my very scientific technique of picking the seeds from their tops and then spread them all over the place.
manfriend: so you just spread them there?
me: no, I didn’t just spread them there. I spread them with love.
Now we have to figure out a way of transplanting those little ones into an actual seedbed pot to help them develop because they don’t have enough space there. Oops, active knowledgable farmer didn’t thought of that 🙂
Well, the new seeds are going to be saved in the refrigerator.
Have a great day!
