Observations about the universe, life, Lausanne and me

Ugh, at home fighting of the flu - hence the lack of posts lately. It might be an Alien flu from Giger's museum!

Can't understand why though, I have been eating all my vitamins. Even some home-grown ones: Cress. My mother used to grow it every winter, and we'd have it on some buttered bread in the evening. Mmmh.

It's very easy to grow: Just some tissues or toiletpaper on a plate, sprinkle the seeds on it and keep wet. In about five to seven days the little plants are thumb-high, and then it is time to harvest them with scissors. Excellent in a salad, or on your bread!


This is the garden cress, Lepidium sativum.


  1. Is this the cress you grew?


  2. Yup, it is. I added the link to the post, thanks for pointing it out!
