If you were reading here last January, you may remember I was trying to decide whether to harvest or overwinter the ginger plant I grew from a piece of grocery-store ginger root. After deciding to keep it to see if it would regrow, I set the pot on top of the freezer downstairs and made myself a reminder to water it monthly.
A couple of weeks ago I brought the pot upstairs and put it in the master bathroom. Yesterday I was delighted to see this:
Right now the plant only has three shoots, but when I brushed aside the soil from another part of the root I could see some growing buds starting to swell. Last year the planter box was full by the end of the summer. I hope it does that well again this year.
