After 1 + years of gentle persuasion on my behalf (or what he calls nagging in his dictionary), he finally did it.
Pastu, bila dah berjaya buat, he felt so proud of his handiwork and kept on commenting on how easy it was to make it and how good it looks.
Apadah, baru tau ka!
Tu sebab I suruh you buat since yonks ago!
But his excuses every time, “I’ve got to go to Bunnings to buy all these things. I need all these materials for me to build a good one.”
I said to him, “I don’t want a good one. I am very happy with just a simple one that can last 1 year.”
And all this while he said, “Oh no! If I’m going to build it, it has to be properly done so we can use it for so many years. That’s why I need all these other things which will be quite expensive.”
I said, “I just want the simplest one, nothing fancy!”
Sampai dah malas I nak suruh dia buat lagi and I nearly built it myself, hahaha.
But semalam while I was at the shop, he tried his hands at building the simplest version of it using just twine and stakes.
(Which I have been asking him to use since years ago but dia tak nak.)
You want to know what it is?
It’s the trellis!
This is the trellis he made yesterday using just stakes and twines.
Trellis yang simple macam ni pun ambik masa 1 tahun setengah nak mulakan project, kalau I suruh buat yang gah bagai nak rak tu, mau kot 10 tahun pun tak siap lagi the blueprint, hahaha.
But bila dah mula project, it took him less than an hour to complete.
(Pastu siap masuk FB tayang kat orang his creation because he was so proud if it, hikhikhikhik…).
This Winter I want to plant sugar snow peas and beans which are all climbing plants so I need loads of trellises for them to menjalar.
Agaknya since dia dah pandai buat trellis, maulah kot every garden bed yang we all ada, he will put trellis on them, kahkahkah…
This beans I planted a few months ago and the bush variety, tak menjalar so doesn’t need the trellis. Banyak dah jugak buah dia.
Our pokok limau purut pun dah berbuah jugak.
The cucumber plants are still growing and producing fruits. But ini jenis yang buah timun dia ada duri2 halus so bila kita petik tu memang sakit lah jari and tangan. Kena pakai garden gloves bila nak petik!
Some of our roses.
Our roses memang nampak sangat being neglected banding dengan oru neighbour’s roses, sian betul, hehehe.
We all ni tak minat sangat nak jaga roses so selalu ‘terlupa’ nak siram and nak belai2.
Luckily lah it’s been raining the pas few days, dapatlah dia minum dengan banyak nya, heeeee….
Once I've planted all the other Winter veges and they’ve grown a bit, I’ll take some more photos.
