Long Beans

My harvest of long beans, from two plants, which are not producing anymore, so I have pulled them out, and replace with 8 new seedlings! Two plants are not enough, to get more harvest, grow more plants! 😉
I  am looking forward to the next harvest, hoping for more long beans!

Happy Gardening !

Hello again!

It has been eight months since my last post! On most part, I have been lazy at updating my blog, since I sometimes post some photos over at my Little Potted Garden facebook page. Here are some photos of what I have been growing and harvesting for the past few months.



Kale, the last few leaves, plant died after many harvests!  I have no success in growing this wonderful veggie again, still trying though!

 More daikons...and leaves are excellent in soups, love it!

 My 15 plus year-old belimbing tree, fruiting heavily. Fruits are especially big during this rainy season.

So many fruits! These were given away to happy recipients! 😊

 My seedless guava. They were crisp, juicy and sweet! I managed to get about 8 fruits. Just noticed that the plant is flowering again. Yay!

Petola/Ridged Gourd...we love these. The plant has since died and it's place is taken over by long beans. Will update on the long beans plant soon.

Can you see the fruits in the soil? Do you know what these are?

Water Chestnuts!
These are water chestnuts! Yes, we can grow them in our home garden. I actually grew them last year but did not get around to post it up.  It took about 9 months to finally harvest them. It is a good experience, but one that I would not want to repeat again. Much easier to just buy them from the market. I grew them because I was really curious and wanted to see whether can they be grown in our home garden. Well, they can!  I'm so glad that I gave a go at growing them! 

Happy Gardening !

Fig In A Pot

Nothing much is growing in my potted garden for the past few months, "abandoned" due to some reasons. My pots are mostly thriving with weeds instead of veggies! Finally cleared some of the pots to rid of the weeds, but there are lots more to do, like getting rid of some unwanted containers and reorganize everything, it is pretty messy right now! The rainy season is not helping either! So, meanwhile, here's my fig tree grown in a pot. This little tree was gifted to me by my sisters more than two years ago. Right now there are more than 80 fruits, big smile! It has been fruiting all this while, but never as many fruits as this before. My one wish is that the fruits will ripen at the same time! I usually harvest only one or two fruits at a time, and wish that there were more. 😊

Fig plants was not easy to find a few years ago. Due to the popular demand for fig plants, they are now available at most nurseries. There are many different varieties, I was drooling over some of the varieties, but they will have to wait, as the plants are really very costly. 

Happy Gardening!

Ginger Harvest

Hi everyone, it has been quite awhile since I last post anything on my blog! There's nothing much going on in my garden at the moment, as the last few months, I have been slacking in my gardening due to various reasons. Hope to get back on track soon.

Here's my ginger harvest from my potted garden, which I harvested yesterday. Ginger is one of the easiest to grow in a pot. I did not really take care of it, except to water the plant so that the soil do not dry out...after about 8-9 months, when the leaves begin to turn yellow and wilt, it is time to harvest the whole lot. You can however cut what you need when the rhizomes have grown to a substantial size. I did cut a knob of the rhizomes, on two occasions at the earlier months, for my cooking. Just cut what you did from one end, cover the cut area with soil, water as usual.

 Yield : 1.2kg, not bad from only 1 pot!

Happy Gardening !
