The Vigor of Plants


   The dill and chinese cabbage plants that I moved to the porch for the winter just don't want to give up the ghost yet.  As a matter of fact, they are trying to go to seed to produce the next generation.  The seeding efforts are certainly fun to watch here near the early spring.  I would expect that the dill will be pretty scraggly by the time it could survive outside, and the chinese cabbage looks like it will be done in a couple of weeks.  Out of pure curiosity, I will probably cut off the cabbage seed stalk and leaves, and plant the stump one more time in the garden to see what happens.
