Lemon grass

When I needed lemon grass stalks for curry last weekend, I checked out every single vegetable stall in the wet market to find the freshest bunch. Whilst I don't need the best for my dish, I wanted the best looking ones for my garden.

Sure enough, I found one bundle with succulent stems. Two stalks went into my curry, the rest were plonked into a vase.

It's funny how the inner stems started growing taller the very same day. At the end of 4 days, new roots have already formed at the base. The thought of having my very own lemon grass patch in the patio makes me very happy.
