Night are still cold here even though during the day we have above 20 degree Celsius. Our summer vegetable seeds germination are not good as last year for some vegetable seeds. Last year, chili seeds germinated in September. But this year until now it won’t germinate for us. Cucurbit too has lower germination in this month compared to last year. On the other hand, okra, bitter gourd and snake bean seeds pop up this month which is 2 weeks earlier than last year. Last year were bought seeds but this time okra, bitter gourd and snake bean seeds are home-saved seeds.
Luckily, we have several chili plants that survive through winter grown from last summer. I almost pull it out from the soil because it look dead. I pruned this plants and now new young leaves has already grown. This mean I don’t have to long for it to fruit.
Galangal has develop new bud for leaf shoot.
Early long eggplant also does not want to be left out producing flowers. This eggplant plants produces so many fruit until May and managed to live through winter. I hope it will provide plenty harvest this summer too.
