This morning I spent a little bit more time in the garden than normal.
Membersihkan aka pruning the overgrown kale plants that had overshadowed the snake bean plants and the cucumber plants.
I would rather let the snake bean and the cucumber plants grow as big as possible than the kale.
Sebab I lagi suka makan kacang panjang and timun dari makan kale, hehehehe.
And also pruning the tomato bushes.
They have definitely overtaken the vege patch, semua tempat dia nak menjalar!
But at least, they produce loads of sweet juicy cherry tomatoes so tak kisah sangat lah kalau they want to hog the whole patch to themselves.
Some of the fruits yang dah masak.
We’ve been picking the tomatoes a little bit at a time everyday makan dengan salad.
But tadi I collected all the ripe ones so tak busuk and tak kena makan dengan Cik Ti.
Dapat lah satu container.
Lepas ni boleh bukak gerai tomato kat depan rumah kan, hahaha.
Cherry tomatoes cost about $2-$3/200g punnet sekarang ni tak silap so jimat duit we all tak payah beli cherry tomatoes lagi, hehehe.
Bila dah pegang kamera in the garden, you all layan aje lah ye some more photos of the plants in our garden.
This is a 3-tiered herb planter which I bought a long time ago tapi tak guna2.
And then bila I baru nak guna, our ex-neighbour pergi bagi pulak 2 pasu besar penuh dengan different types of herbs kat we all, so terbantut lah niat di hati I nak tanam so many different herbs in this planter.
Ended up with me planting corianders in the bottom tier and then some sprouts in the second tier.
The top tier is still empty sebab tak tau lagi nak tanam apa, hehehe
One of the basils that we have, it’s called serata basil.
the leaves have got ‘serrated’ edges so I guess tu sebab dipanggil serata eh .
And our new mint.
Our old mint was very scraggly and unkempt and spindly so we threw that one out and bought a new one.
I promised I will not let this one go scraggly and become unkempt! hikhikhikhik….
And Miss 9’s phlox.
And something that is growing slowly that is makiing all of us so excited…..
Can you see the small green leaves in the metal container?
They are the lavender seedlings yang baru mula nak tumbuh! Hooray!!!!!
I know they are still so small but I really honestly thought that nothing will grow so when they do come out, excited giler lah kan.
I finally planted the english lavender seeds that we bought last month.
Luckily I did sebab bila I baca the instruction which was inside the pack, it says October and November are the best months to plant the seeds.
Inside the pack, ada this metal container, a small packet of labender seeds and also a bag of vermiculite and instructions on how to plant the seeds.
It says to put the seed planter in a warmish place but not under direct sunlight and with plenty of moisture.
So, the best place is in the girls’ bathroom next to the big window lah kan (next to the snow pea sprout plants as well), mana lagi, hahahaha.
I have to keep the seedlings in this metal container for at least 3 months before I can transplant them into the garden or to a pot.
I am really hoping that they will all grow.
It will be a thrill to be able to grow lavender from seeds kan .
