Garden, random pictures

Some plants are designed to keep growing. That's our green spinach. We had to be back in Sitiawan and Pantaai Remis during Hari Raya celebrations, and other appointments over in KL, Putrajaya and Terengganu. Daily rainfalls helped plants very much, and they survived including green spinach or bayam hijau.  Kakdah did her usual sup bayam. Sup bayam is the simplest - bayam boiled in a few cups of water, adding shrimps, onions and red chili.

I am back online after 2 weeks off.   I need to mention about delivery of 200 stevia seedlings to blogger friend in Ipoh during Raya days and the recent mail of 50 roselle seeds to autumn belle. We only grow roselle from the old world, the type I had seen since small.  I am currently getting quite serious with stevia, having 100 seedlings at the backyard under the shade of  netting, 40 percent light penetration.

    1. Sup bayam will ease the journey along the digestive system which begins at the mouth, totaling 2o-23 feet long of narrow small intestine and 5 feet long of large intestine. haha.

  3. Oh hi Bangchik, i can see you have a new header and a new face here. I've not seen your post, yes, for quite a while. I hope the roselle seeds you gave out to Autumn Belle will have lots of ripple effects, haha!

  4. Love the lush plants you have. I once had the purple flower, but I planted it in shade. I see from the above photo it should be in direct sun, my mistake.

  6. We also have green spinach over here, but I think it´s another cultivar as I see the leaves. I wonder what kind of flower the beautiful purple one is.

    1. ~ Janneke ~ green spinach comes in many types, ours with long leaves. To be honest, I dont know the name of that plant with purple flowers.

  7. It's always nice when Mother Nature takes care of our garden when we are too busy :) Your spinach plant looks wonderfully healthy.
