I never thought Malabar spinach will grow here. The name suggests its Indian origin . In fact malabar spinach seeds arrived here as seeds gift, as Wendy from Rockville Maryland. celebrated her first blogiversary. I received it August last year. Some seeds had been tried in Putrajaya. Now is the turn for Malabar spinach....
There was a Bangladesh guy walking down our street one day. He simply couldn't resist , he stopped and talked to me. We grew that in Bangladesh, very nice he said. Then a week later, the plants added more leaves as automatic irrigation system fed them three times a day. One plant, being the healthiest, and tallest, showed what does it take to spurt malabar spinach flower, which I had never seen in my entire life... They grow so healthy with fresh looking leaves, that in the end kakdah doesn't have the heart to cut for the kitchen.
Probably we just let them grow
and flower this time around..
and climb up as others had done before...
