The sage is doing quite well. They got a leave pair during last week and smell nicely like sage. I am rather pleased and looking forward to see how they develop during the next weeks ..

The tomato seedlings are growing nicely, too. They’re not growing so fast, but have already three leaves and hopefully will grow more 🙂

And to end this post, I added a photo of my freshly sprouted Kiwi (left), tiny peppermint (middle) and lemon (right)

Sadly, I planted the salad seeds while it was still too dark outside and alas they did not work out 😦 I might plant some more in two weeks – by then the light conditions should be better. Luckily, the sage plants took a while and now they’re doing alright now. I just re-planted them and hope they’ll grow nicely:

Last weekend, I planted a Mango seed from a Mango we ate. The root is starting to grow and by now is about 0.5 inches (left). The peppermint is a rather slow grower – they’re still tiny little (right). I do hope, however, that the plants will eventually grow. I love peppermint tea and would love to drink it from our own plant.

And last, but not least, I want to show you one of my three Benjamini plants I planted from cut offs at work. It is doing quite well. When I planted it last year, it only had four leaves and now there are various small leaves.

So, after waiting a couple of days the first seeds showed their faces to us. Tiny little tomato plants on the left and even tinier sage plants on the right:
