I went back and looked at Day One today...It's interesting to see how much each subject has opened up and expanded from the inside, specifically the Chayote and the Brussels Sprout. The dryness of this winter is really having an effect on this process however...even with a 9-gallon humidifier thanks to my loving in-laws. I found quite a fantastic blanket of mold growing in my trash can last night, though none on these specimens are having such success. I have made a few changes in hopes of encouraging the process along. Fingers crossed.
