Ginger Harvest

Happy New Year everyone!

I harvested my ginger, not much, but enough for my various cooking in my kitchen.

 Ginger plant, growing quite well a couple of months ago.

See the side of the container, where the ginger rhizomes has grown, pushing the container to the side.

The ginger flower

 A couple of months later, time for harvest, plant is showing signs of wilting leaves. 

Harvested the ginger rhizomes.

Washed and cleaned. I used some for my cooking and they smell really fragrant and nice. I'm  nuts about ginger, I love ginger and constantly use them in most of my cooking!

Save some rhizomes with young shoots, to start over.

Happy Gardening !
