Tea Guy's Great Botanical Experiment - 3

Pennsylvania is a far cry from Assam, Yunnan or Sri Lanka, but it'll have to do. My tea seeds - burly looking things about the size of hazelnuts - are in the ground, as of today. Since I'm in rather a frigid zone and I'm in an apartment for now the ground is contained in small ceramic dishes - four of them, with one seed in each.

As things progress (if things progress) I'll start posting some pictures. No need to bother just yet since it's just some dishes full of dirt sitting on the window sill.

If all goes well I should be drinking my own home grown tea in several years. Okay, I'm not counting any chickens just yet, but stay tuned. We shall see.
