Woo hoo!

Doesn't that look like a cucumber? Finally, a fruit without any manual pollination!

When my friend EY visited from Korea last month, she brought me a seed sprouting kit along with some seeds. These are alfalfa seeds that have germinated after I've soaked them in water for several hours and left them in the sprouting tray overnight.


  1. Don't you have to hand pollinate that female flower? Otherwise the little gourd will shrivel away to nothing...

  2. Oh really? I'll do that right now!
