The Basil Invasion!

Been "helping" Papa and Mamarazzi do "gardening" by "watering" the plants. Muhahaha...*evil laugh* Don't worry.....I "water" only the flowers...not the edible plants.....


 Some time ago, Mommy Ling gave Mamarazzi a basil plant. At one time the leaves were turning yellow and dying. Mamarazzi S.O.S Mommy Ling and she told Mamarazzi not to worry. Just that the plant was growing too tall. Need to trim aje.

Trim then the "excess" just plonk in a pot and it will grow. Mamarazzi didn't believe in the beginning but surprisingly....yes! they grow very easily....alamak...much too easy leh....Mamarazzi kept trimming and they kept growing....now got at least 10 Basil plants in various area of the house...

 
Gave one plant to the neighbour and see what the neighbour gave us...fresh brinjals from her garden!

Now still got a lot of basil in the garden...Hmm...how to get rid some of the  basil ah.....Mamarazzi was think....hmm....maybe plonk a few more and give to my teachers as Teachers Day Gift. What you think....? workable?

She saw her friend syok syok planting Tomatoes ...every week can see him harvesting tomatoes leh...so Mamarazzi also took some seed from the tomatoes and cincai throw it into a container la. Hmmm....Mana tau it really grows wor.

Wondering whether these will survive and bear fruits or not....any tips?



 Finally a Lime plant sprouted...it's Kum Katt plant. We ate Kum Katt during CNY and Mamarazzi saved the seeds. Throw some into the pot. So far 4 tiny plants pop up. Hopefully can survive la...


Unfortunately the spinach plant not growing well....Mamarazzi bought seeds to grow it but each time the seeds grow around 1cm and it kaput-ed....

Finally fed-up . Just plonk some of the roots from the spinach that she bought from the market. They are growing but not in abundance yet.

 Our Brinjal plant....hmmmm....will it bear fruit...hopefully la

But dunno why our Cili plants refused to grow and bear fruit leh....the neighbour ones very big and loads of cili leh.....ours leaves turning yellow and don't wanna grow.....too much water? Too little water? Not enough fertiliser? Maybe I  should start "watering:" these two cili plants kot........

yeah yea....this is a very dry post...not run out of ideas ...still have load of backlog to clear  but kinda leave it a day or two first la.

  1. Basil? No problem but others like cili padi is a big struggle. Also lime leaves always eaten up but insects. Only the center of the stems remains.

  5. Chilly plants are best grown in the ground and gets 50% shade away from the sun. That means morning till noon sunshine would be good enough otherwise you need to water twice daily. This is the real farmer's secrets.

  9. I like this post! My basil plants all kaput due to dry weather and obviously I can't "water" the plants like you muahahahaha!!!! My cili plants also very kedekut with the fruits. Each time will bear only one fruit at a time. Lime plant quite big but also very kedekut. No limes so far. Sigh....

  10. Wah, today is about gardening, eh? Eh, basil hor, my boss say can cure cough.. She was having a bad cough which lasted for more than 2 months.. She behtahan liao, then bok-bek-bok-bek in the office asking for solutions and ideas.. Already tried chinese and western medicine, and over-the-counter cough syrups, but still kennot.. So lat last, another colleague taught her to boil basil with rock sugar (optional), and just drink like that.. Ok wor, worked!

    Wah, neighbour also plant many things hor.. I saw cili padi in between those brinjals too.. Wah, if mamarazzi run out of cili padi, can just holler to the neighbour, then sure no need takut, everything got, kekekeke..

    Talking about Teacher's Day, coming soon, in May.. Remember I asked you what you wana give to J's teachers? You said rotan, hahahaha.. Eh, so remember to update me, what you wana give k..

  13. muahahahaha!! at first Uncle SK thought Small Kucing is so good boy to help water the plants.. but then as he reads on, baru he understood the "water" Mamarazzi purposely put in quotes.. anyway, Uncle SK think surely Small Kucing finds it more fun to "water" the plants than to really water the plants lah, correct or not?? eih, can lah, edible ones also can allow Small Kucing to "water" lah, or ever thought of getting Small Kucing to "fertilize" them?? muahahaha :D

  14. My hand are not good in handling plants... Everytime fail one. Love to be in your neighbourhood

    ReplyDelete
  15. aiyoh, Uncle SK am impressed dei.. basil can be planted so easily and they grow even faster than Mamarazzi's fur!! but the more Mamarazzi trim then the faster they grow, like that Mamarazzi gotta cook every meal with basil now?? haha.. can lah, can cook Thai Basil Chicken, can cook Taiwanese Three Cups Chicken etc mah.. or else, harvest them and sell them in the market!! later Mamarazzi becomes the Basil Tycoon and can be so rich dei~~ :p

    ReplyDelete
  16. errr, different soil used that is why the results differs?? and maybe also the temperature and sunlight and water and air flow, aiyoh, a lot of factors for gardening dei.. haha, this Uncle SK talks as if he is such an expert in gardening, while in fact, his "green finger" could not even make a cactus plant last longer than a week, muahahahaha!! :D

  17. this post not dry lah, very interesting instead what.. at least something different from what Mamarazzi has been writing, and somemore not a basi post also mah.. Mamarazzi writes in the tone of a kid, and Uncle SK is actually thinking, the way Mamarazzi writes her post is exactly the way she speaks in real person!! hahaha.. i've seen many people, the way the write and they way the speak are totally different.. this means Mamarazzi is a very genuine person in real or in the virtual world lah.. :)
