A Visit To A Vegetable Farm On The Outskirts Of Gopeng.

My friend remembered that I like gardening, and so she arranged a visit to a vegetable garden. Arrangement was made to visit after lunch. The timing was just right. After having cendol ice dessert, we hopped into the car and drove to the farm.
We passed by these buffaloes on our way to the farm.
Come on in! Let's go on a farm tour!
We were each given a big straw hats to shield us from the hot sun.
It is a big farm. 
A big calamansi plant with fruits.
They have just started a new nursery.
Coconut husk blocks used for seeds germination.
The blocks are soaked in water and drained.
The trays are then filled with the coconuts husk for seeds germination.
Each tray is then placed on this machine.
These tiny seeds are then placed on this steel tray.
The steel tray has tiny holes equally spaced out. Each seed then goes through the hole and dropped into the tray below that was filled with coconut husk.
We were taken around to see the farm.
The purple brinjals or eggplants are bearing fruit.
Rows and rows of purple brinjal plants.
If not for the midday sun, we would have linger longer.
Next, we came upon these cucumber vines.
It is a joy to look at all these healthy plants.
We were told that these vines are beginning to bear fruits.
This lady parted the leaves to reveal a cucumber hiding behind the leaves.
Besides vegetables, they have started a roses nursery.
Thank you, friends for accompany me on this farm tour.

A beautiful gold tea pot.
Looks like gold but don't know if it is real gold.


These trials are only to test your faith, to see whether or not it is strong and pure.

It is being tested as fire tests gold and purifies it -

and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold;

so if your faith remains strong after being tried in the test tube of fiery trials,

it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day of his return.

(1 Peter 1:7, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. What fun! And I learned some things, too. Those buffaloes were just walking down the street, unattended?
