Got my mail which included a packet of carrot seeds that the insurance company sent me. The world is a very strange place. A packet of carrot seeds. From a health insurance company. I feel vaguely sorry for all the seeds that will be chucked in the wastepaper basket. Seeds are amazing things that contain the ability to spring to life in the correct conditions. We should respect seeds. I wonder if I could grow carrots in my wastepaper basket. First I'll have to get one. They must've chosen carrot seeds as those are incredibly tiny. Sowers bulk up the seed mass by adding sand. Otherwise the seeds would be gone in a second, all into about 2 square inches. Have I hit it yet? I mean the reason why I was sent carrot seeds? Organic wastepaper basket-grown carrots for juicing?
Alan, I saw Parrot Island was listed so I went and had a look last night. Incredible. It reminded me of Green Island and Magnetic Island (in Queensland).
