Is this beginner's luck or Franchi Fennel hits the jackpot? What does one give a septagenarian brother for his birthday? You dispatched him a packet of Finnocchio Montebianco from me. Germination was so reliable that, for my birthday, he brought me his excess of plants. Therow in my vegetable garden looks so vibrant and healthy after our recent deluge. I await a month of sunshine to develope something edible and I will exercise my cullinary techniques.
