The Slow Garden Yield

5 Nov

The vegetable patch in the garden is slowly showing some yield. It is one okra at a time! The last time I checked, there was one almost ready for harvest and another coming soon.

Our second okra and the third coming soon!

Then two days later, we harvested that first okra. At almost five and a half-inch, it is a good size. As the plant is healthy and fruiting often now, we should see a constant yield.

It doesn’t matter whether it is one at a time – as long as we get to enjoy the fruits of our labor, that is, by far, the most important thing.

One Great Harvest

22 Oct

So we harvested the okra, and it was one great harvest, literally.

Our first harvest!

The three of us had a small bite each of this first lone harvest. Being pesticide-free, I must say the five-inch long okra was very crunchy and yummy.

Well, I can only hope to have more soon. Patience is key here.

Green Fingers Red Chillies, Part 3

13 Jul

The new habanero chilli plant has finally sprouted after several failed attempts by hubby. He will of course be monitoring its growth until they are ready to be harvested.

For now, they are still green like mini capsicums. I look forward to the moment when they all turn red and look like cute little Christmas ornaments. It will be a lovely picture to capture! Stay tuned…

Green Fingers, Red Chillies

28 May

It’s a known fact that hubby is the green fingers person at home. The little herbs and vegetable patch in the garden is thriving. The habanero seeds that he threw into the soil several months ago have finally yielded some beautiful plump chillies.

Within a day when he showed me the green chillies, they ripened to become a beautiful red, hanging on the branches like little Christmas ornaments. This species is pretty spicy and although they look like miniature capsicums, they don’t taste like capsicum at all but gives a nice oomph to the tastebud.
