September Sunday Harvest

It's a beautiful bright Sunday. Yesterday was similar; however, rain lashed during the evening. Can expect rain this evening also?

Sunday is a day when I get to spend time with my plants. Oh, the hibiscus plants have been blooming; seems like they are competing with each other! The roses are lovely. The anthuriums, african violets, and orchids are all happy and in full-bloom. Can ask for more?

Today, I pulled out baby potatoes from the remaining two plants. The dwarf capsicum plants had two peppers each; I plucked only two of them. The lemon plant had two lemons. The chilli plant have a few chillis. The strawberry plant had about four ripe fruits. The spinach and brahmi plants have good amount of leaves. It's a merry harvest!





Prepared for the next set of harvest. Planted potato eyes. Replanted spinach (palak) and amaranthus (dantu soppu),  and sweet peas in bigger containers. Loosened soil in a few plants. The cucumber creepers are growing; hope they stay healthy. The grapevines are trying to climb on other plants. Got to get some support of these vines, probably during the next week. Will write about them in the next article, and also about orchids (phals).

Enjoy your weekend, and have a great week ahead.

Regards,
Asha

  1. What a merry harvest indeed! Didn't know you had Brahmi. I wonder if you could post a little about it in the future -- how is it eaten, how does it taste, etc. Are those lemons in the last picture? They are HUGE!

  2. Hi Anita, will write about Brahmi. In fact, one of these days, I'll be preparing a chutney from the leaves, and shall share the recipe too. Yes, those are the lemons from my dwarf plant, and they are huge and have a lot of juice.

Hi friends,

Thanks for visiting the blog site. Please leave a message to share experiments at your garden or to send me a feedback about my experiments. Even a simple "Hello" would make my day!
