All action on the windowsill today, Lettuce seeds for both Lollo Rosa and Little Gem are sprouting and my dwarf beans are showing true leaves. They are not kidding about them being speedy beans. sprouting to true leaves in 2 days!

On the cucumber front my last plant is still going and growing like mad and now has 3 female flowers and mini cucumbers starting to show, so god knows why this plant has survived and flourished.

My original strawberry pot now has over a dozen largish fruits on it already.

    Sounds like progress. But why are you very unhappy? Maybe you hit that drop down by accident, I’ve done it myself!
