The Great Lemongrass Experiment


I love lemongrass: in soups, in curries, even just to make tea. Fresh lemongrass tends to be difficult to find and usually expensive at the regular grocery store, and a trip to the Asian market isn't always convenient. It turns out that lemongrass is really easy to grow in our area!

I bought the freshest looking stalks I could find at the Asian market and put them in glass jars with a little water in a sunny window. After much impatient checking and rechecking on my part, two weeks later they were sprouting little rootlets.


Now I can plant them in the ground or in a container. The stalks will divide and split all summer, giving me a fresh stalk whenever I want one.

For a more detailed guide to growing lemongrass, this is a great video tutorial (plus her accent is so cute!).

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
actually something which I think I would never understand.

It seems too complex and very broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working
with? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
