Exactly 11 days ago I planted some pumpkin seeds into the back garden. I didn’t do anything special, I literally dug a hole with my hand and popped in the leftover scraps from the pumpkin I baked. Today I have this spurting out of the ground. If you look closely you can see the pumpkin seed still attached to the sprouting plant.
When I first came to the island and I asked about planting stuff some of the locals laughed and said, “mate, just stick it in the ground and it will grow”. And so it does.
