Time to meet the family

Despite all the things that has hapened around me, I am very excited to see my family. I have to abandon my vegetable garden for a few weeks. I did pick some of the green tomatoes and give them to my mother in law. Green tomatoes are delicious when it cooked on a pan with some butter, salt and pepper.

I do have the brussel sprout growing wonderfully. I hope they will survive the summer without my TLC. The lettuces are about to bolt due to the heat. But they are still nicely growing. I am sure the leaves are good cook in noodle or rice.

The roselle are growing nicely. I cannot wait to see the flowers and the fruits. I will get a sweet surprise when I got back from my vacation.

The plants around the house and inside the house will have to learn to grow without me. I don't have anyone who I can rely on to water them besides the nature.

To all the muslims reader, I am wishing you happy ramadan, enjoy your eid celebration with your love one.

Bountiful crops

I have been picking lots of beans, peas, lettuces, turnip greens, brussel sprout leaves, green tomatoes, malabar spinach and zuchinnis. They are so delicious when cooked in some butter, salt and ground black pepper. The weather is getting hot and some of these plants are loving the heat. The tomatoes are fruiting like crazy. I am also growing egg plants and roselle. I am very excited. After the rain, I will go to the garden and start inspecting each plant for any sign of disease or, bug eggs. I squeezed them if I see any. I decided not to let the bad bugs eat my vegetables.

Tomorrow is the first day of Ramadan, fasting month for the muslims. I am wishing happy fasting to all my muslim readers. May God gave you jannah.

Sowed more fenugreek

It was drenching last night. The garden is wet and muddy. I covered my shoes with grocery plastic bags. In the morning I soaked some more fenugreek seeds. I prepare the soil by pulling some weeds in between the rows of spinach and turnips. I sprinkled and worked in the fenugreek seeds on the prepared soul. I just need to keep it moist until germinating. I'll post pictures at later date.

Fenugreek in also known as Halba in Malay. The plant is very nutricious and can be eaten as salad or soup.
