Home Gardening Sunflowers For The First Time

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY.... I think... this is the first time I post up a flower post!

I am not into plants but I do like to plant vegetables though.  Recently, my neighbour gave me some okra seeds to plant and currently, they are still growing in my two pots in front of my house.  That is all I have, two pots of okra and they are still in their "baby" form.  I will show it when they have fully grown, not now... keeping my fingers crossed...LOL....

In this post, I want to share my son's plant, he bought some sunflower seeds online and last month, the package came.  Inside the big package, there are one packet of sunflower seeds, 12 small pots and 4 bigger pots plus a packet of soil.  This is the first time I see my son doing his own "germination" and in weeks to follow, the seeds grew and for the past week, the flowers began blooming!  We were so delighted... LOL... First time in history, we planted something and they bloomed so nicely.  Of course, my neighbour assisted us cos he has green fingers unlike us.  LOL... 

We did an experiment while planting these sunflower.... we planted some behind our house and two pots in front.  Same timing but the difference is a lot.  While the back sunflowers bloom and bloom, the ones in front was just starting to bud.  Needless to say, the stems were different too... those planted behind were "fatter" than those planted in front of my house, they looked "malnourished!"  

Budding.... 
Going to bloom.... 
Bloomed... so beautifully....
Maybe behind the house has more sunlight....
And standing tall too... 1 meter in height...
After a week... it started to wither... 
The head looks larger in size.... 
And here is my malnourished sunflower in front of my house....
It started blooming while the ones at the back started to wither.... 
And it is not as tall as the back ones....
Anyway... 
While one retires, one starts to live... 
at least for a week!

  1. Did you get to eat the seeds from your sunflowers? Like eating kuaci?

  3. Gorgeous! So maybe your son will have a green thumb. I agree, there must have been a difference in how much sun they each got.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
