Dragon fruit little babies showing true character

Oh, these little seedlings really take their own sweet time. They are still in little pots, they are not strong, no readiness to stand upright. They just limp lazily. But their little true cactus look is beginning to show.., and the little tiny soft thorns......

December 2014.... germinating

February 2015..... true cactus look appearing

Lawn and effort to improve soil

We did try hard to improve the look of our lawn at Seri Iskandar home. Organic fertiliser, biomass waste of palm oil, cow dungs were used every time we spent weekends there. The lawn look alright for the moment, helped by the regular rainfall at the tail end of monsoon season. For the next two months rainfall will be a lot less, the grasses have to handle themselves. We would come back once or twice every month.

The improved lawn.

our own nitrogen fixer: little mung beans or kacang hijau.

I am trying to see the impact of mung beans on soil health, since they are nitrogen fixers. 13 leucaena (petai belalang) seedlings are growing steadily and they too are nitrogen fixers. We will be back on 19 - 22nd of february to see the progress.
