    This is too funny, well done! I am struggling to get my chillies and eggplants out of the ground at the moment. Hasn’t been warm enough I guess? ( That is except for today!)

      I hope all yours germinate soon.

    That’s how I got my vietnamese mint. Apparently works well for coriander as well

      You plucked out some fresh stuff from your pho? That’s impressive!
