Oppss...who was lazy leaving the eggplant at the partial shade corner not stake?
So when I finally attempt to stake the branches that were on the ground last weekend, I found 2 bonica eggplants hiding beneath foxglove foliage. One of the eggplants were bigger than my palm and very heavy for an eggplant. We had very warm days a few days ago which causes our eggplants that were growing in sunny position has wrinkle skin and not growing much. So I have to harvest them when the fruits are tiny or they stop production/flowering. Lebanese and early long eggplants are not usually bitter but due to the weather causes them to be bitter. There were many angled luffa female flower last week but not a single male around for successful fruit.
Some alpine strawberry fruits ripening in the garden this month.
The only photo taken.
They are fresh snack in the garden so photos of them are very rare.
Our first soy bean harvest from a plant.
This is my second year attempt trying to grow them.
Not easy to grow here because of dry hot weather in summer.
Soy bean like heat and humidity I think.
I tried growing them in different season and location in the garden with not much success.
How did I get them to produce this time?
I sowed soy bean seeds in the container which I prepared for a sweet potato plant.
I think the sweet potato plant crawling veins help keep the soil moist and act as a natural mulch.
Boiled the beans in salted water for snacking.
Sweet potato shoots.
Cleared up sweet potato plants that were growing in one corner in our garden.
It has been mice sanctuary.
Most of the sweet potatoes were eaten not much left for us.
We harvested spaghetti squashes before the rain comes. Left them curing naturally outside for a long time until the whole plant has actually dried off. A very tiny watermelon and cucumber were also harvested last weekend.
Cleared up the neglected patches along our driveway shared with neighbours, got some spring onions. Some capsicum were also harvested last weekend.
