From My Garden & Skywatch

Instead of sharing on food, I will share a bit from my garden in this post. But first, let me share a few shots of our morning sky.

Sunrise at 7:10am

~~~~~
Edibles from my garden.
Chive bud and flower.
After I have given 2 pots of chives to my friends, there are 2 pots left in my garden.
.
Green brinjal or eggplant.
I have cut and removed all the brinjal plants from my garden except for 1 last plant which is still fruiting.
There are now cucumber plants growing in 2 pots in my garden.
~~~~~
Non-edibles from my garden.
Purple Wishbone flowers.
These have self-propagated in some of the pots with nothing growing in them.
My odd shape cactus. It has long and sharp spines or needles.
Anyone can help me with the name of this cactus?
It has started to form cactus pups or offsets on its crown.
Top view of the new pups or off-sets on the crown of the mother cactus.


Happy is the man who doesn't give in and
do wrong when he is tempted,
for afterwards he will get as his reward the crown of life
that God has promised those who love him.
(James 1:12, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. This was from Cameron highland. Most of the succulents and cactus I bought from Cameron were gone because I tend to over water them.

  7. You have a great garden. That cactus, if it were in the USA, seems very similar to a barrel cactus.

  9. I love your garden! The eggplant looks so big and healthy with no bugs. My father used to grow them in his garden, too, and my mother cooked them with meat.

  10. Hello Nancy, :=) If you let chives flower, does it affect the taste of the chive? I don't know the name of your spiky cactus, maybe someone will. I love your sky shots.

  11. We have wild onions here that grows like weeds. I am always pulling plants out when the soil is wet and lets go of them easily, so they don't take over the yard. Their leaves and blooms are similar to your chive plant. The flowers are edible also. I have never thought of using them in the kitchen, but perhaps I should. I love your gardens with so many different vegetables in pots.

    1. Thank you, Yvonne. I prefer to grow them in pots because I find it more easy to manage but I know growing directly into the ground will be much better for the plants.
