Finally its weekend and its a no wet day today after almost a week of erratic weather. I could do some gardening in the morning before I go to the lab to look in the microscope looking at chromosomes in the afternoon. Mik helped sowed seeds in recycled containers and I transplanted seedlings.
This veggie bed is in front of the kitchen window that I have manured 2 weeks ago. I transplanted leek seedlings here.
Harvested some leek and other winter vegetable today to make porridge (rainfield61 gave me the idea) for buka puasa. Lettuces growing well for one of the lazy cooking day.
Last week I posted a blog about this nest that we found but don’t know what kind of bird nest it is. Yesterday we saw the bird inside the nest. We think it is laying eggs now. The bird is slightly bigger than a crow.
My next door neighbour back yard has many big trees that is flowering and many species of birds are flocking on top of those trees. It is a heaven for bird watchers. I don’t have a sophisticated tech camera that can zoom out that far to get a good picture. I got really distracted looking at those beautiful birds yesterday from gardening. Because of that I did not get to do much gardening as I like and went to lab later than I planned to.
