Hari ni I did 2 loads of washing tapi 5 loads of folding….
Macam mana lah boleh bertambah agaknya tu ye?
hehehehe…. (nampak beno yang I ni malas melipat kan, sekali kena lipat, ambik kau, satu gunung terus!)
The Other Half pulak sibuk menyiram all the plants yang kena tinggal 3 hari.
And sambil2 dah dia kat luar siram pokok2 tu, might as well hang the washings as well kan, heeee…
All the plants survived kena tinggal in the hot weather for 3 days except our kesum . The kesum in the pot memang kering2 sekeringnya even though we did put it on the vege patch supaya boleh dapat the water from the timed watering tu. Maybe the water tak sampai ke tanah and the roots, cuma sampai ke daun aje so tu yang kering.
Takpelah, luckily kesum ni senang nak jaga, walaupun dah kering and macam dah nak mati, still boleh hidup balik.
And then while he was watering, suddenly dia masuk and asked me, “How big do you think the watermelons are?”
I jawab, “not that big cos a few days ago, they were still quite tiny.”
He just laughed and said, “come and have a look.”
Mak oi, besar jugak these 2 watermelons kan! I have no idea how I didn’t see them before padahal last week, I mencari2 jugak the melons.
Another 2 yang still tiny.
But I’m not sure berapa lama we all kena tunggu before we can eat them though.
And then, the eggplants and the bendi pun grew like wildfire while we were away.
So, tadi I had to use them up sebelum they became too old.
Luckily, The Other Half mintak kari so I buat kari daging and kentang letak bendi in it.
And I made terung goreng dgn bilis, bawang, chilli api and kicap.
I bagitau The Other Half yang I letak chilli api kat terung tu so kalau makan, tengok2 lah dulu sebelum main gigit aje.
Dia kata dengan macho nya, “I’ve already eaten the chili and it wasn’t hot at all.”
Which made me quite pelik lah sebab the chilli api was really really hot!.
Pastu, a few minutes later he said, “I took that back, I think that wasn’t chilli that I ate. Because I have just bitten the chilli now and it is damn hot!”
Hehehehehe….cuma perasan macho aje lah tu .
I cuma pakai 3 biji chilli api aje tapinya, hehehehe….
And since the weather was really hot, I made ‘virgin mojito’ for drinks.
We just crushed chopped up lime (with skin), sugar and mint. Add loads of ice cubes to it and then pour sparkling apple juice into the container.
Serve with a sprig of mint, very refreshing!
Esok, we have to pull out some of the tomato plants in the garden and then plant some of the seedlings into the newly built garden bed and some weeding….
