This morning I harvested my green vegetables and young sweetcorns. The hot and wet season we are experiencing now has done a lot of good to my vegetables. They are thriving but because of my busy schedule since last week, I have no time to harvest them. A few of them are showing some flowers!
from left: white and green pak choys (the stems), first time green and red spinachs (bayam), second time kangkung (water spinach) and eggplants
young sweetcorns and cute little capsicums for stir-fry mixed veggies
Milka and FoodsoDelicious were asking about my pumpkins. Here are some photos showing those little fruits. I tried hand pollinations to help them, not sure these will be successful in forming pumpkins. Hope they dont drop off please....
So my lunch today consisted of those greens I harvested this morning. I blanched everything. The kangkungs, long beans and bean sprouts are made into pecal, a local salad eaten with a hot spicy peanut sauce.

The rest of the veggies - pak choys, green and red spinachs are also blanched with cauliflower, brocolli, sweetcorns, cubed red apples, pear eaten with mayonaise. Emmmm...I can eat this everyday!
Sorry, if my photos are haphazardly arranged...its just one of those things that is beyond my control..hehehe
