This very wet weather is so hard for our Brassicas.
There're lots of rotten brassicas in our garden.

But look... our red cabbage patch.
There are two cracked 'head'.
I'm not sure the real problem.

Readers, do you know why?
And how to treat it or to prevent the healthy plant from this disaster.

1000th POST

Time flies so fast...
As a new blogger, it's hard to believe that I have already made 1,000 posts on my blog.
I started blogging on July 2013, and so various themes that I have posted.
Especially on gardening activities.

All post looked so simple, as I posted my daily activities in our homegarden and a bit of my experiences on gardening.
Absolutely unperfect...

I know, I couldn't make qualified posts as well.

Thank you for the friendship...
I really want to improve my self on blogging.
Thank you for following, thank you for coming...

During the rainy season, lots of our crops have rotten, cause the weather is so wet.
The only one variegated pepper that we had has rotten and died.
It happened about a couple of months ago.
We can see the beautiful plant here.

Last week I found lots of purple seedlings under the 'ruin' of the pepper plant.
Jostled with the weed.
Actually, I have no idea at the first, cause the only one plant that we have was dead.
But these seedling really made me so happy, a new hope.
I think I have to move them into the individual seedling pots soon.
Hoping they will grow well.

Last week my husband went home with a basket of fresh mangoes from his parent garden.
Home grown mangoes...

Every end of the year is mango season.
Almost of the mango trees here are fruiting.
During the mango season, my husband usually go home with these fruit.
All fresh ripen from the tree.

This is Arum Manis, a popular variety here.
Arum means fragrant, manis means sweet, yes... it's so sweet and aromatic.
The flesh is juicy, but a bit crispy when it nearly ripen.
We really love this fruit so much.
Thanks GOD

Our fig is growing so high, and showing us it fruits.
It makes our friends so jealous.

They really want to grow fig.
As we know, fig plant is fairly expensive here.

The simple way to multiply this plant is grafted.
Actually some gardeners use cutting method, but it has too much risks.

So I try to do grafting on my only one fig plant. 

I hope I will be success, and I will have more fig plant, to be planted in our tiny garden and also to be shared with our friends.

Two of our creepers climbed on our front wall.

Both of Syngonium and Philodendron lemon lime grew so lush and high.t Syngonium was growing like crazy.

I think that was not good enough.
Then my husband 'pulled out' the Syngonium.

Look... the imprint of its roots seem very real on the stony wall.
The roots really marked the wall.

We just let the Philodendron lemon lime creeping the wall, and cheering our front yard.

This is my Phalaenopsis amabilis in our estern backyard.
Looks so poor before... but now it looks so fresh.
And look... there's a little bud above the lowest leaf.
Aha... I think it will be a spike of flower bud.
I really missed the bloom.
I hope it will be safe from snail and also heavy rain.
I can't wait to see the beautiful orchid blooming.

It's so annoying when the ID or name tag of our plant disappeared.
I collect so various pepper, especially ornamental pepper.
Love to see them grow so well, but such a shame when we don't know what its name.

Look... our unknown pepper grew so well in our balcony.
The peppers look so fresh and healthy...

The pepper looks so lovely...

These are our various peppers that came from the same fruit.
We can see the pepper last month here.
Lots of red peppers that we have picked.
Bountiful peppers are hanging on the three slim plants.

So interesting to see the shade of color...

Beautiful color and shapes...
But the taste is very very hot... really burning!

These are two of red lettuces remain in our terrace garden
I sowed a pinch of Kayla Red lettuce, but only two seed germinated and grew.
It might the seeds have expired or other reason.

What a shame the lettuces aren't growing compactly as usual.
One of the lettuces are bolting.

I think they only have limited sun shine, so the color is not so bright, greenish and a bit pale.

The taste and texture are similar to common lettuce.
However they are coloring our terrace garden as well.

Our jasmine bush in our tiny garden is growing so lush.
The branches are 'running' here and there.
A slim branch is 'running' into the porch.
This branch is full of flowers and crossing in front of the door.
My little one really loves to smell these aromatic flower

I feel it have been so long, I didn't find any fruits hanging on this little tree in our tiny front yard.

Yes, our star fruit tree have stopped fruiting for a while.
Actually, starfruit tree can produce fruit all year round. 

Lots of little flowers are blooming.
Hoping lots of fruits too...

These are our broccoli plants in our terrace garden. 

A new patch for this year.
Actually, I planted them both in containers and the ground.

What a shame our rainy season is so hard for this Brassica.
Most of broccolis that grown on the ground have crushed and decayed. 

Hoping they will grow so well, and I can pick the broccoli curds next.
