Houston… We Have Leafage!

Back in April 17, I posted a photo of a sprouting Taro from our pantry. After 16 days, its first leaf has emerged.

  • Totally random comment, but I did a Google search for LJ users who share my birthday (Jan 3). Here’s my annoying obligatory message:



  • ooh, i am so glad that we are gardenfriends.
    this photojourney ROCKS!

    are you growing this to eat or for foliage?

    • Thank you so much patchoullijulie!!! :) I’m glad we are garden friends too… I enjoyed looking through you journal and photos last night, but didn’t go that far… just up to the firepit :) I’ll have to go through it later…

      I’m basically growing this for fun and for shade for my Coleus. I got the idea from Meighan’s Taro. Another gardenfriend :)
