She Has Gone and Killed the Cardamom!!!!

I cannot believe what I have done. Honestly if I had children and treated them with the same contempt and mindlessness that I have inflicted upon my cardamom plant, Child Services would have stepped in and seized my babies a long time ago.

I left my beautiful cardamom out on a freezing cold night in Central Victoria. The mercury dipped down to at least minus 4 degrees and froze the living daylights out of it. I am so ashamed. I quickly scooted her inside to bask in the warmth of the wintery sun in our lounge room, but I fear the damage may be done.

...and if you look closely you can see the beginnings of one little potato. I have no idea how that got in there! Again, I am not the most observant of parents, not only do I let them freeze to death but I do not keep track of who their little playmates are!

No wonder I don´t have children. I cannot be trusted.


  1. Where on earth did you get a cardamom plant from?!

  2. Remind me not to let you babysit :D

    Nah, you'd remember your kids outside, if my gardening skills were any reflection of my mothering skills, I'd never have made it out of the hospital with mine!

    I also want to know where you got it from... I think I've asked that before though, haven't I?

  3. Yeah if my garden skills were a reflection of my mothering skills the kids would be thirsty a great deal of the time, lol.
    I do wonder about the little playmate of yours

  4. If I have kids, I am sending them to you.

  5. Widget???? What is it and how do I add one? Clearly I am new to blogging
