A Time To Plant & A Time To Harvest

Today is Friday and here are some sunrise shots to link to Skywatch Friday and Friday Bliss.
 At the recreational park @ 6:47 am.
 Sunrise @ 6:50 am

Back home, the following were harvested from my garden.
As the white bitter gourd vines grow older, the fruits are getting smaller. Will be uprooting the vines soon to prepare for the next planting of new edibles.
 Even the angled luffas are now getting smaller in size. I also harvested some snake beans and chilies. There is also a dried angled luffa.
 This eggplant/brinjal is a mixture of purple and white. Probably due to cross pollination because there are white and purple brinjal plants growing side by side.
 I kept the dried angled luffa for these seeds for sowing new plants.
 Stewed duck with white bitter gourd, very flavourful.
 Angled luffa with dried prawns and garlic.
 Hubby requested for noodle. No noodle for me because I wanted to finish off both the dishes without leaving any leftover.
A view of my little garden after both the white bitter gourd and angled luffa vines have been cleared. Now the plants growing in pots will be getting more sunlight. Currently, hubby is helping me to put up more overhead lines in preparation for the next planting season.

A Time For Everything

For everything there is a season,

a time for every activity under heaven.

A time to be born and a time to die.

A time to plant and a time to harvest.

(Ecclesiastes 3:1-2, New Living Translation-NLT)

    1. True. The only thing is rotating the types of veggie to grow so as not to get bored with the same type.

  7. Hi Nancy,

    Your title brought to my mind that beautiful song that says the same! Your sunrises are spectacular and it was interesting to see a bit more of your garden. I hadn't realised that you grow so many plants in pots - of course easier to water. Bon appetit - your dishes wake the appetite!

    1. Thank you, Riitta. I decided to use pots to make it easier for me to move them and also to take care of the plants and garden.
