Garden Shopping

June 10, 2014 | Permalink | Comments Off on Garden Shopping   

Now I have a new hobby is to visit the local garden stores to shop for new plants. Today I got myself a strawberry and grape plant. It is difficult to grow these in hot weather. I hope I can make them fruit. I still got lots to learn when it comes to gardening. Sometimes I get over excited and got too many plants. I do wish they sell more varieties of flowers. Love those flower plants in US.

When I was in US, I bought lots of different seeds. And today I planted more than 20 different seeds. Now I am excited to see which will actually grow here. Let?s hope all make it. I just want my garden to have more beautiful flowers, vegetable and fruit trees. Let’s hope that happen.

Here is my strawberry plant..

Health Tips

I seldom get sick and I have a couple of health tips to share. I believed it has something to do with my garden. First tip to avoid sore throat and flu, is to chew basil leaves. I chew a couple of basil leaves every day. I plated lots of basil in my garden. I tell you, it is better than any sore throat candy you can find in the store.

Second tip is to eat mulberry. Yeap a good friend gave us some mulberry cuttings to plant. Now the mulberry tree cannot stop bearing fruits. Mulberries have lots of vitamin C and anti-oxidants. I heard it can prevent stroke too.

Lastly is drink more water and do exercise. I usually exercise when I work in the garden. It involved pruning plants, weeding and plant more herbs. Great way to make the environment better!

Rainbow Loom is a big hit in US. However it has not come to Malaysia yet. Strange that it is created by a Malaysian but his home country is not selling it.

Anyway I got another brand from ebay. Actually I got it for my little girl. I can tell you that it is pretty addictive when the outcomes of the end product come out pretty. There are many video showing tutorials of different designs of bracelets and charm.

Here are a few that I did, cool eh!

Curry Leaves

I got this baby curry leaves plant at my church ground. I took it home any put in a planter box. I just like the way it grows. It looks like a big green flower.

Someone told me that if you chew 3 curry leaves a day, your grey hair will slowly disappear. I am not sure how truth but you can surely try. However it is not so easy to chew curry leaves as it has a tough texture and lots of fiber. It works better if you cut it into tiny strips for easy digestion. Try it at your own risk.

I still prefer to eat home made curry.

Of First Fruit & Flower

I am so glad that my tomato plant finally gives me some fruits. I was trying to plant cherries tomato from seeds. Sad to say, I killed the first 2 plant. Well I guess the bugs or pest kill it. I am told that I don?t have green hands. But I won?t give up. I started another plant using some seeds. It germinated and grew.

I was so happy when the plant started to flower. Previous ones didn?t flower at all. Then the fruits came. It took a few weeks for it to turn red or orange. I cannot wait to taste my first fruit.

Another plant that made me was my orchid plant. It was flowerless for a few years. Suddenly flowers blossom and made my day. I didn?t even do anything to it.

Patience pays off!
