Our Little Garden

Date:  Mar 1, 2015

There is a little garden that my wife has set up within our Condo compound.  

What she did is to become one of the committee member.

And they she volunteer to take care the landscape and gardening within the compound.

And a year later, we have this “public” garden or vegetable garden to plant all sort of edible vegetables.

Every one can look after it.

Every one can come down to pick the chilli padi, pandan leaves, and so on.

And my wife is the one running it, and she get some neighbours to help out too.

This is a great place for Jay Jay to learn Science.  What kind of living things can be found here.  What kind of leaves are there.

Kay Kay always come down here to water the plants.

I tell you later what I am going to do.

This is the pandan leaves.

IMG 8963

This is curry leaves.

Small label are placed there.  So, kids within the condo can learn too.

Kay Kay still watering the potato leaves.  The potato is due to be harvest soon.

New plants and veggies are being seeded here.

All veggies and herbs are edible.

Warning.  This chilli padi is very very hot and spicy.

There are even Thai mint lime here.

You can eat the leaves above the ground.  It is good for stir fry.  And you can BBQ the sweet potato below.

The aloe vera is fat too.  Good for making Longan drinks.

It is not big garden, but it is enough for the kids to water the plants.

It is organic.

At home, we throw all our veggies and fruits here.  Even egg shells, etc.  As long as it has no oil, then, you can put in this box to let it decompose.

I think my wife gave me a name, called Compo or Compose or decompose something.

IMG 8987

So, all these are organic.  Not cooked veggies, but those that you cut off and you don’t cook, all goes in here.

And Jay Jay’s job is to dig a hole.

And then, you pour all these composed fertiliser (natural) into the hole and let it further decompose.

IMG 8996

It is natural fertiliser, and thus, very good soiled produced.

See the worms… how fat it is?

This is this the sign board to prevent the gardener to come in and cut away the veggies.

Just beside it, a lot of mimosa.

Let’s touch it!
