First Cucumber More Cucumber to come

Hey! Look at this little gem and more to come!

Just to let you know…

DAIKON

My Garden

While I was away, my share mate looked after my garden and did really well. At the same time weather was getting warmer so all veggies grown so quick.

Daikon was even flowering big time but the Daikon itself (root) was small and too tough to eat. I was thinking what was wrong, too crowded when it was in the seedling stage? Soil? Watering?

After few researching on the internet, I found it might be that I sowed the seeds too early. Apparently, Daikon doesn’t like to get cold. Now I have sowed some Daikon last weekend and I’m hoping it works this time!

Go Daikon Go!!!!

Worm Farm

Worm farm

 

My Gardening sensei Naive Zebra told me about the farming and worm juice sometime ago, even before I started serious gardening. So I didn’t even thought about it, but recently it came into my mind so I researched about farming and I made the first trial.

As you can see, this is just a plastic tub with few holes on the the bottom center for worm juice to drop. I used a mixed of shredded cardboard box and Coir brick for the bed and top up with little bit of veggie & fruit waste. Worms are mainly from my friend and some from my garden.

I hope it works and get a good juice and earth!

Last Thursday

On last Thursday, I needed to go to city so I took bit of a tourist shots.

And I found my first Snow Pea! Yee Hah~~~! …….but I can’t make any meal out of only one Snow Pea. Umhuuuuu…

Daikon Re-plant

It’s been quite while since I sow Daikon. Some of the leaves grow big and high but root hasn’t grown much. I believe they are too close to each other, so I re-planted into new planter. It looks so tired but it will recover in the couple of days. I hope this works!

Did you know….?

Komatsuna

 

Known as Japanese Mustard Spinach “Komatsuna” but is actually neither mustard nor a spinach, for its scientific classification is Brassica rapa var perviridis which places it only in the same family of plants.

This is my favorite, so I have 2 big new planters full and some more this time.

Spinach and Shungiku (chrysanthemum) will be harvested for a BBQ next weekend. After that no veggies to harvest for a little while.
