Methi- Vendhaya keerai – cute little ones – Planted them three weeks ago

Coriander and Methi – clustering babies – sowed some coriander seeds but they did not sprout at all. So gave up on them and sowed some fenugreek. As soon as they got some company the coriander started growing !! Now there seems to be some competition now !! 🙂

Chamandhi – from the little bouquet basket . I got the $3.99 bouquet basket from Raleys for the Tamil new years day in April for the rituals. I usually get these live bouquets so the flowers stay fresher for a long time. Almost a month. After using up the flowers did not want to throw away these alive little one so planted in a planter. It loved the new lease of live and been blooming regularly.

Lone green chilly – I got the small chilly sapling from walmart around october last year, I moved them indoors to survive the winter. It gave lotsss of chillies then started retiring I moved them back to the patio and seems to be picking up again.

Okra/Ladies-finger – Sowed seeds three weeks ago. Guess they grow slowly

Year old Pudina – Planted them from used up mint stalks around a year ago. They seems to be getting taller and taller then realised they are a kind of creeper. They were dormant during winter and now started to let out some greenery and great smell !!
