cucumber sliced.

Nasi Lemak.
rice, slices of cucumber, boiled egg, ikan bilis, and sambal.

and a cup of coffee to flush it down.

That is the first cucumber from the two plant.
It ends on breakfast table as add-on for local delicacy nasi lemak.
I can see new baby cucumbers on the trellis,
and there will be more nasi lemak for breakfast later....

  1. The cucumber looks tasty! Mine got eaten by slugs before it even had a chance to blossom :-(

    I could not get ginger started at all but have had great success with lemon grass, which I keep in a pot so it doesn't take over my garden. It looks more like an ornamental grass than the lemon grass I used to buy to cook with!

    Yours looks great...well done.

  6. I am finding out what a joy it is to have my own fresh tomatoes from the garden to the table. You have a wide variety of vegetables that always look wonderful.

  13. I wish I could grow ginger. I have a piece from the store that looks like a bud is forming. I think I will try putting it in a pot out on my bedroom deck where I can keep an eye on it. I lived in California and we had beautiful ginger plants with heavenly scented flowers.
