Tonite, just layan gambar our garden lah ye sebab I tak tau nak tulis apa .
People might ask kenapa we all beria2 tanam segala macam benda in our backyards ni, berbaloi ke?
I guess for us, we want our girls to see greens everywhere they go around the house. We also want them to experience the joy of watching your plants grow and bear fruit and also to experience how fresh veges and fruits taste like.
The watermelon we had yesterday tasted quite different from the shop bought ones, it tasted ‘fresher’ we think.
(I still buy veges and fruits at the shops sebab there’s so many produce yang we all tak tanam, hehehe….)
Since it’s nearing the end of Summer, our vege gardens have changed a bit as well.
We’ve pulled out a few old things and planted some new things.
Our main vege patch now looks like this.
I told you that the rockmelon plant has taken over the whole vege patch. It’s climbed over everything, the capsicums, the chillies, the eggplants and the okras!
We even have a few rockmelons growing hanging in between the capsicum plants, hehehe…
The Other Half made this tepee-style climbing poles so I could plant……
The snake bean aka kacang panjang seedlings. Yeay.
We love kacang panjang and I’ve searched for the seeds for months now until one day I said to The Other Half, “you know what. I might as well buy some fresh snake beans at the chinese shop and then harvest the seeds to plant.”
And I did just that . I bought the oldest looking beans on display just so I could harvest the seeds. Alhamdulillah, the seeds bercambah and I got 4 snake bean seedlings now.
Our row of citrus trees with the apple tree and the kari plant.
My kari plant sekarang dah so gumuk! Seronok tengok .
We are planting the citrus trees in big pots because we are thinking of landscaping the front garden and putting these trees there. But entah bilalah we all akan ada masa jadi rajin nak spend the whole weekend (and a few weekends after that) nak landscape that area.
A few of the apples growing on the apple tree.
These are broccoli plants. I think we have planted them a bit too early. They are supposed to be cold weather plants.
Oh well, they are growing so I guess we’ll see how they turn out.
Another plot of vege garden filled with asian greens, turmeric, chillies, gingers and blueberry.
I think we have lost the redcurrant plant . All the leaves have dried out and fallen off, tak tau kenapa.
One of the no-dig garden beds pulak penuh dengan basils, celery, parsley, pegaga, chilli and lettuces.
Another view of the ‘meriah’ garden, hehehe. Penuh dengan segala macam pots and garden beds and what nots.
Ada kangkung, chilli, kucai, pandan, phlox, thai basil in the pots…..
Another raised garden bed. This one pulak I planted cabbages, some asian greens and cos lettuce.
The 3 kunyit plants that I repotted from my kunyit stock to give to friends.
My neighbour’s backyard…
Backyard dia lagi lah macam kebun peladang berjaya kan! Kalah kebun we all, heeeee…..
(I ambik gambar ni curi2 you all! Punyalah I made sure no one could see me. Memang sebijik macam Peeping Tom, hikhikhikhik…)
The Other Half kata kalau I kena tangkap dek neighbour ni tengah dok sekodeng kebun diaorang, dia tak nak tolong I, muahahahaha…..
P/S I am sorry I belum sempat jawab any of the comments in the previous few entries. I have been really busy lately, tak sempat nak duduk lama2 to sompose the replies. But I will do it soonish. Thanks for still commenting ye! .
