27 Dec the day my heart died
How to plant your heart in the soul of the world
1. Choose and clean a pot
For your heart, I like something sturdy, which drains well and is a good size for a small plant to grow from a single peach side.
2. Perpare the seed (your heart)
As I have a peach seed that I found on my run earlier, even though the packet of proganic pottting mix said to soak the plants to reduce stress, I had though t earlier, that all the goodness of the fruit around the seed might help the plant. In any case it is done now. Probably should have soaked the seed.
3. Prepare the ground for your heart seed
Here I have used organic poitting mix, that was bought locally.
4. Plant the seed
Nourish the heart with food, warmth and water
The instructions said to soak the plant with water (which I did with my little watering can) and to protect the plant from intense sun, wind for five days. I don’t want to bring it inside here, right now, because it is a peadch of the world, and as such it grows IN the world, but my heart is a better place outside.
ALSO: Please note – your peach seed won’t grow if you plant it like this! You need to wrap your seed in a moist paper towel, put it in a plastic bag, and store it in the fridge. Keep the paper towel moist and in about two months your seed will be ready to plant (as above).
