Second week of November harvest

It is late spring and most of the growing summer vegetables are still in the early stage of development. I am starting to worry what next week will be available to harvest from garden to kitchen for preparing food on the table. For this week, we harvested some baby potatoes (nicola variety) from potato plant grown in polystyrene containers. Some of the potato plant leaves grown in polystyrene box has turned yellowish and dying. So I pull out the plants and rummage into the soil to see how much potatoes I can get from a 2 months old plant. Surprise, surprise can get my hands on some baby potatoes.

DSC09895 . The last cauliflower for this year. Not a beauty and big like it sisters that have been harvested a while back but nevertheless taste good like it sisters. We have to wait another 8 months to eat fresh cauliflowers again. Although we do have some frozen one if we crave some.

Many small potatoes were found when I harvested potatoes this summer and my wife fried small ones and we enjoyed them with cold beer.
Your tomatoes looks heart-shaped!

The shape of that tomato is slightly odd with a tail, but cute.

Lovely potatoes. I tried growing them once, it grows healthily at first, then one day it suddenly wilted! Just harvested some ladies fingers, and of course, belimbing again!

Dear all, its our first harvest of potatoes and of course first taste of fresh potatoes (made korma dish with it). The potatoes taste so good simply melt in the mouth. I will grow more next year. It is worth it.

Kitchen flavours~ I would like to swap some for your belimbing buloh:). I bought some rebung to cook masak lemak cili api but belimbing buloh with it will be much nicer.

Almutarjimah~gardening is soothing.

Milka ~ You have to update your potatoes. Luv to see it.
