Here’s an update on my vegetables & fruits about 3 months later. They were grown from seeds obtained from kitchen scraps. Enjoy!
The best discovery about this lemon tree is finding out how aromatic the leaf is. I love to tear the leaf and smell the wonderful fragrance. It’s nothing I’ve smelled before. Very very unique. Hmmm how should I describe it? It doesn’t remind you of lemon but it has that distinct citrusy aroma. The smell that calm my soul!
Can’t wait for my lemon tree to bear fruits!!! *fingers crossed
Update: April 2017
Here’s my lemon tree about a year later. I replanted it to a larger pot and moved to the back of my house together with my avocado tree. 🙂
I ate it today. Guess what? It’s sweeter than commercially grown/store-bought tomatoes. No wonder homegrown food is DA BEST!!! Now I understand it.
They’re date palm. You know the date that we find abundance during puasa and Raya time? Yup that date (kurma). I won’t go into really growing them because they’re REALLY large plant. It’s just an experiment to see whether they can grow via seeds and I got my answer. Hehe
Btw, the turmeric plant in the first photo of this post didn’t survived. No idea why.
I have three pots of these spring onions. I think I finally found the secret to how NOT to make your spring onions die. Haha. Before this I always sow the onions into the soil. This time I simply place the onions on the soil. Without the soil covering the onions, the onions won’t turn soggy (make sure it’s not place in very shady area). I use onions and shallots. Both gave me spring onions. To harvest them, just snip the quantity you need and they will continue to grow from where they’re snipped off. Cool!
Lastly, I decided to experiment on another favorite fruit of mine and I was surprised that they actually germinated. Now, why didn’t I do that sooner?
One is germinated from fresh fig seeds (dried for a couple of days) and another is germinated from semi-dried fig seeds. I already forgot which is which. LOL. Not important. What’s important is BOTH are producing me lots of baby figs. 😍 Will write out a separate post if these figs survive just like how my avocado plants are growing healthier and taller.
Unknowingly, I am slowly working towards my ultimate dream… to have a beautiful farm in the land of NZ (It can be any country actually). All I want is a plot for my veggies, some cows, horses, sheep, chicken, cats and DOGS!!! Yes, I would like to give those homeless dogs and cats another chance at life.
I don’t know how I’m going to reach my goal but I think what I’m doing now will eventually lead me to it. Just enjoy the journey along the way!
