First dates

Or perhaps that should read  'First date shoots'.  The other day while I was snacking on a few dates I looked at the stones and thought 'hmmmm, I wonder if they would grow '. Well look at the little shoots forming.  I potted them up into small pots yesterday and they are sitting in a little propagator in my conservatory. I have sent off for some lime and some grapefruit seeds as the fruit I bought didn't have any pips. I really am going to need a conservatory the size of Kew Gardens at this rate.
