Then I started doing a bit of research on chia seeds. Amazingly these little seeds have more omega 3 than salmon. Well I can't grow salmon in my garden (sure wish I could!) but..... maybe I can try some chia? So once again I ventured into the very expensive health food store and picked up an 8.00 bag of chia seeds and a handful have now been broadcast into the area vacated by the radishes. Look at them ... no, I cant see any coming up yet either! Oh well I suppose you win some and you lose some.:)
I have planted loofah, pigeon pea and jicama from the seeds that I saved, yakon tubers and rosella seeds were procured from friends. The sweet potato that I left in the ground have started to shoot up again, and there is plenty of ginger just waiting to shoot up again as soon as the rains start.
What a wonderful feeling to know that I have completed my wet season planting without buying a single packet of seeds.
