The four new ulam raja spreading leaves.

the four ulam raja.

The seeds were saved from  the last group of plants.
Sometime middle of April the four little plants were transplanted on the ground. The space is a little bit limited, squeezed between radishes and the drain. Experience indicates that ulam raja will survive even in  tiny space and worst soil. After about a month, they are picking up height and foliage. Kakdah hasn't pick the shoots for salads yet. They have to grow a little bit higher and stronger for dinner table. Fertilizer is goat's dung pellets. I still pamper them with comfort of coconut husks.
