Harvest Of God's Blessing From My Garden

I have gone missing for a few days and now I am back again from a short get away.

On the morning of the eve of our short getaway, we still went for our early morning walk at the park. The air was cool and fresh after the heavy downpour the previous evening.
 Thank God, the haze has been washed away.
Clear sky and nice sunrise to enjoy.
 We drove to town for breakfast.
 My craving for nasi lemak on a cool morning.
 Mee Jawa is one of hubby's favourite.
 Our unsweetened black coffee.

Let me see what I can harvest from my garden to take along to our short getaway. We planned a hot pot dinner up in the cold highlands.
I harvested 2 daikons (white radish) and
a white and green bitter gourds (bitter melons).
The above green bitter gourd (the first fruit) was from the new plant.
 My friends love basil so I also harvested some sweet basil. 
Next, I harvested 4 cucumbers and a single snake bean to add to the above.
The above is the first fruit of my cucumber plant.
Thank God for His abundant blessing on our garden.

That evening, I cooked a simple dinner.
 I cooked half a yam (taro) with dried prawns and kept the other half for the hot pot dinner.
Blanched a small portion beansprouts from the packet I bought for the hot pot.

The following photos from my garden are for linking to various memes.
Cockscomb flowers.
This plant must have self propagated from the seeds left behind by the previous plant.
 Garden snail and slug
 Millipedes
Siamese fighting fishes.


Don't criticize and speak evil about each other, dear brothers.

If you do, you will be fighting against God's law

of loving one another, declaring it is wrong.

But your job is not to decide whether this law is right

or wrong, but to obey it.

(James 4:11, The Living Bible-TLB)

  5. Buena desaparición para encontrar lugares nuevos.

    Me gusta las tonalidades de esos cielos . Respecto a esa hermosa planta que tienes en tu casa, te comentaré que tenía una igual y que después de superar este verano los 40º de temperatura, he terminado por perderla, tenía dos macetas de esa planta y las dos me desaparecieron por tantos tiempo de excesiva calor.

    Besos

    1. Due to the wet season, the bitter gourds are not doing as well as before.
