January is one of the wet month of the year.
Lots of rain...
Our garden look wet and a bit mess caused by the downpour.
Some of perennial vegetables, mostly greens, are growing so well and so fast too.
But not for our annual crops, they looks so poor...
So our harvest are mostly perennial greens.
Such a shame... I often forgot to take any pictures of our harvest.
Just picked and cooked soon.
Lets check it up ...
Some edible weeds on the basket and also greens from 'Pepaya Jepang' (Cnidoscolus aconitifolius).
Kenikir leaves (Cosmos caudatus), Kembang telang or blue butterfly pea (Clitoria ternatea), hot chilies, Roselle and pumpkin flowers.
Roselle for healthy drink, and pumpkin flowers for tempura.
A kind of Kara Wedus (Lablab purpureus), we picked the beans before the vine have pruned.
Lots of hot chilies
Lots of red roselle , We should pick them every day.
Long yard beans, cucumber, oyster mushroom and eggplant.
Hot long peppers...
"Lembayung' or young long yard bean leaves, great for gravy soup with coconut milk.
Daun Katuk (Sauropus androgynus) great for clear soup.
We picked limes almost every day from our porch.
So refreshing make a lime drink with honey.
Lettuces, hot chilli peppers, tomato, long yard bean, and butterfly pea.
Pumpkin leaves and shoot for soup, hot chillies, long yard bean, Kara wedus, and the only one butternut pumpkin.
Twice a week we picked 'Kacang panjang' aka long yard bean (Vigna unguiculata).
We get about a handful of beans, every harvest.
Get a basket of 'Lembayung' as a bonus from pruning time. Lots of chayote shoots (Sechium edule) as a bonus from pruning time too.
A lovely bonus from the invader.
