WEEKLY HARVEST: MARCH 2

Heat and wet during this week, it's something that I'm worrying about.
It's causing many problem in my garden.
Fruit flies, fungus, snails, blight and rotten...
Hopeless...


Yesterday I got a basket of passion fruits, also a basket of chayote shoots and young leaves.
Here they are for today...
A cluster of rambutans, I think this is the last ones.
There are chayotes, loofa, sweet basil, three varieties of amaranths, broccoli leaves, long yard beans, papaya leaves, red long chilli peppers and green globular eggplants from my back yard.


The loofa vines only give me a healthy fruit, I find so many rotten fruits are hanging on the fine.
It must be caused by fruit flies attack.
I haven't had time to wrap the little fruits to make them safe.
From my terrace garden, I pick purple eggplants, first green eggplant, four varieties of amaranths, cauliflowers, tomatoes, broccoli leaves and lettuces.


Everything that I get is blessing.
Thanks GOD.

  2. It does not look hopeless, quite the opposite: What a nice harvest! But I know, how you feel: Gardening is like life, you may work and strive but in the end there are other influences too: good ones and ... snails. And the wheather. Have a nice day! Sarah

    1. Fruit fly is a serious pest in our garden. They more aggresive during the wet and warm weather. Farmers usually use metil eugenol as an attractant for the fruit flies.

    1. Thank you. Amaranths always present on my home garden all year round. They high in vitamins, iron, fiber and antioxidant. And of course really really easy growing. Most of mine are self seedling
