A Green Day

It have been raining here in the evening for the past week. Good news is haze seems to have gone away. Yeah..shoo shoo....don;t come back again.

Another good news is the garden is flourishing. Plants sprouting leaves wild here and there. Only down side is that the weeds had the same idea too.

Mamarazzi spent the whole morning weeding and pruning the plants in the garden . Can sing "Baa baa black sheep have you any weeds, Yes Sir Yes Sir three bags full".


 Let see......Mamarazzi's Taiwan Watercress vegetable is growing well. They seems to like the wet weather. Hopefully can harvest soon to make soup.

The mint enjoying themselves too. All standing up to try and get some sunshine. Harvested some the other day to fry with eggs. The more you harvest , they happier they grow.

Mamarazzi decided to change the crops. Stopped planting Kangkung (water spinach). Planted Sweet Potatoes leaves instead. Very good harvest. Every 2-3 weeks can harvest once. Not bad. Harvested some for dinner. 

We have abundance of the round leaves Pegaga (centella and gotu kola). It's said to be good for high blood pressure and a few other ailments.

Harvested some. Given a lot the old lady next door and she was so happy. Yup...Pegaga is for juicing or if lazy, just pour hot water over it and drink . Cheap cheap...no need to buy expensive juices . 

Have too much of daun misai kucing and lemon basil. Mamarazzi is drying them to make tea. Trimmed the mulberries tree and drying the leaves for tea too. Papa said drinking mulberry leave tea helps him to sleep better. 

Mamarazzi also experimenting on Roselle. A gardening friend suggested to dry the Roselle for tea instead of making jam. 
 
 While clearing up the clarden....my pet showed that he is not please with what Mamarazzi is doing. destroying his hiding place. He tried to scared Mamarazzi away but too bad.....Guai guai ah...keep on catching all the bad mozzie and insects for us , okay. 


Apart from the edible garden......the flowers are blooming too. Spotted two pretty yellow roses. Hmmm....getting the hang of planting roses. They don't like too hot weather and doesn't like too much water. Still no idea how to propagate it successfully yet. 


Last month Kaw Kaw came back for a visit and they went to nurseries to look see look see. Guess who was the one who ended up with pots of plants? 

You guessed right. Yup....Bargain corner at Lot 61 is a "killer" for bargain hunter. Mamarazzi got 8 pots of plants for just RM10. 

Top Left : Two naughty boy and one unidentified plant. 
Top Right : Two Geranium
Bottom left : Two Gloxinia
Bottom right : Two roses

  
Jeng jeng! Got lovely blue flowers liao that unidentified plant. But...still doesn't know the name. 

One of the Gloxinia bloom...it's a lovely deep velvet red. So lovely. The color of the other pot is still a mystery.


 Hmm....enough about garden...what's new about me? errr....nothing much. Just discovered a new play ground which I will be "bodek-ing" Papa to bring me every weekend.

Mamarazzi also discovered the guard who jaga the toilet there also have an interest in gardening. Probably will be visiting the toilet more there. Crazy gardener.

I know la.. Gardening topic is "boring-ing" you all ....Mamarazzi saja feel like "bragging" about the  "hardwork"  that she had done this morning..hence "hijacked' my blog and post up lo
