capsicum is big leaves and parsley is startinf to have second leaves

I think there is a lack of either water or appropriate balance of gases, or even light, as these are growing much more slowly and weedy than seedings of same plants in our garden.

We had a little accident yesterday afternoon, the bottle was knocked off its windowsill when I closed the curtains. Apart from a couple of seedlings getting uprooted all seems fine today.

Parsley & capsicum seedlings - looks like all the albizia has died:-(

The worms have been busy as the rubble rocks in the base are now covered in dirt and no longer visible. There was even a worm cast, but no.2 son thumped the bottle down on the floor and it collapsed so it is no longer obvious in this image.

This year there are some really weird coloured Nasturtiums in our garden - this one looked almost brown - not orange but definitely gingerish!

The blue of the bucket I used as a backdrop has made it more orange than it appeared.

Deep Sea Arctic Life

Some cool pictures of recently discovered sealife from the Canada Basin
under the north pole.

This is part of the Census of Marinelife project.

What does this have to do with home ed? Well, what doesn't when home ed is about learning from life!
