近來試用一種意大利護髮conditioner, 一向不看 usage direction 的，今天有點無聊就拿來看看，笑死了，不過同樣的笑話也時常出現於中譯英用品或食品.
I'm trying out an Italian shampoo and conditioner, here's what the label says:
Conditioner~~~~blah, blah, blah~~~~"apply on cleaned and dump hair; Comb through, massageandletitrestfor5min. Rinseaccuratelyandtoweldry. Avoidoverdosing."
No kidding, I am not making this up, this is exactly what is printed on the label; go figure!
OK, I think I get it, I'll make sure to "dump" my cleaned hair, and try very hard not to "overdose" on this darn cream.

Sowed: April 3, 2007
East window sill
No bottom heat
China Rose: 1 of 24 seeds germinated 4%
6 weeks to sprout
Columbine: 11 of 24 seeds germinated 46%
Various sprouting rate 3-6 weeks
Will the sole surviving mini rose make it to maturity? Maybe, I hope so.
I have some more seeds in the refrigerator, hopefully they will do better for me once they are stratified.
This picture was taken a week ago; it was the second harvest of spring sow, a third harvest was cut 2 days ago; some plants are showing signs of maturity with flower buds forming; I snipped the buds off hopefully it would help the plants to stay green longer. Our daytime temperature is getting warmer everyday, it would be interesting to see how long the greens can keep up with the hot dry weather.

Holy Basil--kra paw, 泰國種嘎拋 ?
Genovese Sweet Basil--意大利種九層塔
Paging Tahai: 我的嘎拋葉不像你種的那種，why? 去年舊家有你種的那種，可是。。說不像，why? I am confused! Maybe these are Korean mint? The leaf underside is purple; I might have gotten the seeds and labels mix up (thaaaaat's meeeeee!)
The "basil" on the left is Korean Green Perilla, not Holy Basil; I will post another picture to show the difference later.
