Ansel brought me some beautiful light green bok choy from the market this weekend. They were hydroponically grown by a farmer in the city. Each one had a little block of soil at the bottom, filled with tiny roots. "I think if you plant them, you can grow more bok choy," Ansel said.
"Wow, neat, great idea!" I said, and went on to do other things.
A little while later I thought of it again. "Maybe I should plant them now," I said, turning around to find them.
And there they were already, rooting in a glass.
2 others, in a bowl
And a profile of Ansel :)
