Ginger Harvest From My Garden

I noticed that my pot of ginger was overcrowded, so it was time to harvest the ginger roots or rhizomes. The ginger plants were grown in a shallow pot, so it was easy to loosen the soil using a spade to dig around the inner side of the pot. Then I grabbed hold of the whole bunch of ginger shoots and the whole lot came out of the pot.

I gently loosen the soil from the rhizomes back into the pot. I separated the smaller rhizomes from the bigger ones, and kept them aside to re-plant them again into the same pot. I added more soil to the pot, add in some fertilizers and mixed them up together. Then I planted the smaller rhizomes back into the pot.
These are my ginger harvested from my garden. This time the rhizomes are smaller, probably I was feeding the plants with enough of fertilizer.
It was quite a good harvest, enough to last us for some time.
Newly planted ginger plants.
Instead of one pot, now I have 2 pots of ginger.

I air dried the ginger and then I kept them in the fridge.

That's how God's Word vaults across the skies from sunrise to sunset,

melting ice, scorching deserts, warming hearts to faith.

    1. As long as the supermarket ginger is still fresh, or has sign of a new shoot, then is good to grow.

  15. Wow! I envy you. I wish we have our own ginger plant in our garden. We can save money if we have our own ginger plant because it is expensive in the market.
