I spent an hour or two with the plants. As a part of festival harvest, I got a few Okra, a bunch of Greens (Dantu), and a few Green Chillies. I prepared sambar from these vegetables. We plucked flowers for the festival puja; colorful basket of flowers and fragrant leaves!
Due to heavy rains, pests have increased. I removed the infected leaves and sprayed pesticide during the weekend; pruned the rose plants that did not have any buds. I wish there is good sunlight for the plants, along with the rains. Well, I guess wish was granted; it's a sunny Sunday.
The bonsai plant has not only survived but also has new leaves. That's encouraging! I am waiting to convert the lemon sapling into a bonsai. I also bought one Nolina Recurvata (Pony tail) plant to make a bonsai. That's going to be lovely!
