Mike's Blog - Day 254

The red leaved castor oil plant returns today. It first appeared on Day 127, and oddly enough its back again 127 days after that!

As you can see, it is looking fairly battered now but it’s time to save the (toxic) seeds for sowing in the spring. I have the spikey seed cases drying in the office now.

They should open up in a week or so. We keep most of our seeds in paper envelopes in a fridge. It’s a good time to look round your garden and see what seeds there might be.
