The haze may be worsening but it’s not getting me down as badly as before. I have little plants to perk my mood up, you see…
The cucumber plants are almost ready to be planted out into the garden. I want them big enough so that the stems aren’t too tender and attractive to hungry snails.
I have a potful of young kangkong plants that look green and vibrant. I’m going for a crowded look this time, so there are even more seeds in there that haven’t germinated yet.
The marigold seedlings need to be separated… that will be a weekend project, probably.
The okra plants (no pic as they didn’t look nice) were rather leggy because I should have put them where they get more light. I’ll just have to sow more seeds…
There are also new seedlings to show -
Three unnamed Thai gourd plants (not all pictured). Hope we get more monster fruits from them!
Long beans – always a good staple here. We love them fresh! I really need to make it a habit to sow new seeds every 3 weeks or so to keep the supply constant.
Coriander – wish it luck because I can’t seem to keep herbs alive for long, but I have seeds, so I’ll keep trying!
And there are other plants in the works since I decided to just keep sowing more seeds. I have quite the collection in the fridge that is a few years old (I keep adding to it!) that I think should be used instead of stored. So now instead of thinking of how awful the haze makes me feel, I have this happy sense of anticipation waiting for the seeds to germinate, and watching them grow when they do. Is that Plant Parent Syndrome?
