looking forward to autumn harvest!

I sowed 2 seeds in a big pot on the veranda not really expecting the seeds to germinate, however, despite my doubts they germinated very quickly & are growing well now. I've heard that burdock can be harvested in Autumn when it's sown in Spring. So I'm so excited to be able to harvest burdock in Autumn! It's very common vegetable to eat where i come from but it's really hard to find fresh burdock here in Australia. I'm so happy that I could buy the seeds & grow my own fresh burdock.
