Still not a vegetable, though...
I have a friend who knows a good pot when she sees one. This one has been standing at her home with a gigantic houseplant inside. Unfortunately she's moving to another part of Sweden and has gifted me, a very happy indoor gardener, with it (this is not a manipulated photo - I do fit in there).
Now I'm pondering two things. A; where to put it, since I don't have a spare corner for it, and B; what to plant inside. I've decided to ask you to help me come to a decision. To the right you find a small poll, you have a week to answer and the help is deeply appreciated. The pot is deep enough for potatoes, although the fruits are poisonous (twoyearold in da house). Or perhaps I should call the Uppsala University Botanical Gardens and ask if they can sell me some ulluco to plant, so I can try this mythic plant at last. Another alternative is to buy loads of strawberryplants to satiate the sweet tooth of my son even during the winter. On the other hand, if I plant tiger nuts I can provide him with a toy lawn and the family some cooking oil (if I ever can figure out how to extract it).
Thankyou Irene, Johan and Anders for all your precious gifts! We'll miss you much in Uppsala - good thing we know where you live... :-)
