 On July 2011, I got a most  memorable moment in my life. 
My little brother got married July 3rd and my mother was passing away one day later.  
My mother loved my terrace garden so much. 
When she was visiting my house, the first place that she visited was my terrace garden. 
She usually stayed there for a long time. 
She often gave me some advice about planting and growing plant. 
After she passed away, I took a break for a moment in gardening. 
I loosed my passion. 
My garden looked so messy. 
Poor garden.... 
The weed grew rapidly, some plants were dry caused drought. 
Oh... no...

Bitter gourd, hot chilli pepper, green bean, tomatoes and cucumber

 3 days later, I found cosmos leaves...

Look the broccoli ! They were growing well. 
Lettuce looks so fresh on candy plastic jars.  
I planted cauliflowers and chilli pepper in  the cooking oil plastic-pouch.

3 days later....

Chinese cabbage on paint bucket...

2 weeks later....

 Look the chinese cabbage row.... 
Hot peppers in plastic cases and sweet basils behind them

 2 weeks later....


 Caisins, loofa, bitter gourds, tomatoes and cucumbers

Look the  creamy white hot pepper...!  It's really hot.

It was 2 years ago, when I built my first terrace garden. 
But I'm so sad if I remember that garden. 
Because, my terrace garden changed to another function.
It becomes my daugther's room.  
Let's we remember that moment. 
Really memorable moment for me...

On the left, there were packcoy, chinesse chives and green onion.

I used pot, can, polybag and other recycled material for the container

Paprika, chinese chives, eggplant and chinese cabbage

Tomatoes, green onions and kangkoongs


The green beans : fresh, crispy and sweet pods

The extreme weather was over.... I hope...
My garden looks better than before. 
When I was walking around my little garden, I found some vegetables was ready harvested. 
So... it's the special moment that I always waiting for.
Thanks God...
