EASTERN RAISED BEDS THIS MONTH

Our raised beds on eastern backyard looks so lush.
Although the plants have changed time by time.
All grows so healthy.
These are pictures taken on the late of January.
The raised beds were full of traditional spices such as jeruk purut (Citrus hystrix), daun salam/ Indonesian bay leaf (Syzygium polyanthum), daun pandan (Pandanus sp), sereh/lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus) and zingiberaceae family.
The Zingiberaceae that we grow are jahe/ginger root (Zingiber officinale), kunyit/turmeric (Curcuma longa), temu lawak (Curcuma xanthorhiza), kencur/galangal (Kaempferia galanga), lengkuas/greater galangal (Alpinia galanga), and temu ireng (Curcuma eoruginosa).
They grew jostle...



Now... this patch is much brighter.
There are two varieties of sweet potato, cassava, pegagan (Centella asiatica), Colocasia, and daun katu (Saorophus androgenus).

  5. Indeed your herbs are growing like mad, great. The Zingiber reminds me that I just bought a piece of ginger root this week, we cannot grow them here.

    1. Yes, that's right, Janneke. It needs time to tidy up this part, especially during the rainy season. Growing so fast and thrive.
