Two ounces of caraway seed

The forecast was for rain this evening, so it seemed appropriate to collect the caraway seed, which has been drying on the plants in the recent hot, dry weather.

Just as well I did collect it, as we have had a five minute blast of reasonable rain. And I’m sure the garden

appreciates it as much as I do! (Hopefully, there will be a bit more to come.)

Anyway, back to the caraway seeds. In all, there is a grand total of 45 grammes of them, so definitely a year’s supply for us. That’s off five plants, for anyone who’s interested.

It’s probably only about £2 but covers the price I paid for the packet of seeds. And more seedlings are on the way for next year’s crop. Besides, I am sure a few seeds will have gone in the compost bin, so undoubtedly there will be extra returns in the future.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    Caraway is on my list of plants to try. I think it featured in Steven Barstow’s 80 plants book (another dangerous book!).

    Glad you harvested the seed before your much needed rain…two rewards.

  5. Gosh I used caraway in dinner last night … first time in ages! 🙂
