What’s This?

We wondered…

We thought it could be

sticks,

or antlers

or maybe a cactus…

Then John smelled it and knew right away that it was ginger!

image

So we soaked it overnight..

image

filled the bottom of a flowerpot with stones…

image

and added a soil mixture of half potting soil and half vermicompost.

image

We dug a little hole and plunked it in!

image

It’s ready to grow on a bed of rocks for extra humidity and we have fresh ginger to look forward to!
