Harvested some sweet corn and chili last week.
Ilhan had some buttered sweet corn for breakfast.
Da Cheong Chae look so terrible from pest attack that I pull out all of them. Bitter gourd still produce female flower but the fruit won't grow that big so I harvested them last weekend. Clearing up the containers with unproductive old plant for new planting given us some leeks and spring onions. We don't usually allocate space for spring onion usually inter-planted them with other plants.
End last spring, we sowed jicama (sengkuang/yam bean) seeds for the first time in our veggie garden. The sad thing that direct-sowed seedlings on our patch that received full sun all day died on the first heat wave of 40+degree Celcius. Jicama plants that survived are growing in containers which received only morning sun. As we had already enter winter, jicama plants does not look good. So I am a bit worried at the moment whether we actually have some tuber to harvest or not. Moreover, I worry if too much rain will make the tuber rot if we don't harvest them quickly. So last weekend, gently I moved the soil away from one jicama plant to see whether we get any tuber or not. Surprisingly, the root went very deep, I had to dig about 20cm deep to finally see some white root. Our first home-grown jicama and look like a top.
