Long red chili have a go.

The bigger space I am currently enjoying offers room for multi-adventure in vegetable gardening.  But one thing I am very much aware is when so many type of vegetables are grown, there is a need to keep up with things. Every vegetable ha its own special need and growth rate. There is also a need to answer the question "what's next". Because the end of one veggie should coincide with  next veggie seedlings ready. A gardener is a leader visualising what lies ahead in long term plans.  And at the same time a manager too, coping with daily chores pests, watering, fertilising, mulching and harvesting. And also a community member as we share harvests with neighbours.

Long red chili have a go.

There is KipMart in Pasir Gudang on the way up to Masai. KipMart is such a big supermarket. Everything is available there. And the most interesting part is the veggie, fruits and fish sections. One day Kakdah bought a few long red chili. I opened one, took the seeds out and germinated them straight away. No problem, they dutifully let out roots and shoots. Wonderful, one chili has so many seeds enough for tray type 74.

The seedlings are still in  tray type74 . I didn't count, but at a glance there should be at least 70.  They will get to the ground soon, as seedlings grow to eighth  leaf.  Not all will be used up.  I wonder if Azmi and Sanusi is interested. Otherwise the extra will be squeezed in the one-foot vegetable bed.

    ~ at times I thought we gardeners overdo things. Just throw seeds and wait could be a better option. The good part being a gardener is, one can actually orchestrate things.... to a certain degree.

    ~ We dont have 4 seasons, but the one and only season we have comes in with varying degree of temperature, rain and wind. That will determine the future of 70 chili
