Der skulle altså købes nye frø. Ud over radiser, spinat, grønkål, salat og alle de der almindelige frø, sneg der sig nogle underlige frø ned i rygsækken.
Et supermarked, hvor jeg ikke plejer at komme holdt ydermere frøudsalg. Uglemor er let at friste.

A side effect of putting all the seeds in a box was that MotherOwl realized just how old some of her seeds were. Some of them hail from last century, and even more were bought during our stay in Germany (Spring of 2004). Maybe MotherOwl found the reason (or one of them) for her missing gardening luck these past years.
New seeds were written on the grocery list. Kale, radishes, salad and corn are not something to show off, but more exotic seeds fond their way into MotherOwl's backpack as well.
A supermarket, which is not one of MotherOwl's normal haunts, had their seeds downprized. MotherOwl was tempted.
Knolde af Rød solhat og "Raketblomst"
Jordbærtomater (en tomatillo-art), gule majroer, sjove squash
Artiskokker, persillerod, busktallerkensmækker med røde blomster.
Marietidsel, Gul sommerfugle-tallerkensmækker, spindehør - denne pose stod et forkert sted, og var den sidste af sin slags, man har da lov at være heldig.
Nu mangler Uglemor ikke ret mange frø, for at have alle dem, hun drømmer om. De mest savnede er jernurt, kvan og vaid.

Rhizomes from Echinacea and "Rocket Flowers"
Strawberry-tomatoes (a savoury tomatillo), yellow swedes, a funny squash,
Artichokes, parsley root, red flowering and bushy Tropaeolum,
Mary Thistle, yellow butterfly tropaeolum, spinning flax. The latest was pure luck. MotherOwl saw the empty spot and sighed, then, searching for verbena (which was not there) she found one misplaced bag of spinning flax. Yes!
Now MotherOwl does not lack many species, notorious among those are verbena, voad and angelica.
