This week, we have enjoyed a harvest of home grown stuff 🙂 Firstly, there was the cress grown in an eggshell, with face expertly drawn by Waif:
Secondly, I have finally gotten round to using the slightly bizarre “Biosnacky” contraption for growing your own beansprouts. You soak the seeds ( I selected the Spicy Aromatic Mix) overnight then rinse and drain them a couple of times a day for a few days, whereupon they grow into these:
And they actually taste pretty good in a sort of radishy burpy kind of way :-). I am trying alfalfa sprouts next.
On the sewing front, I spent a busy evening sewing a stuffed fabric Easter egg. I will not be posting a picture!! But here’s where I got the idea: http://retro-mama.blogspot.com/2009/03/easter-is-in-air.html. It took me about three hours, mainly because I got halfway through and ran out of bobbin thread, and then for the life of me couldn’t work out how to rethread the damned thing (it was late!) Anyhow, I finished it in the end and was most proud, because it’s the first thing I’ve ever sewn all on my own without any help 🙂 But I will be making a Morsbag next…or maybe some beanbags for the boys…or just something not as small and fiddly and curvy as an egg anyway…
