My One And Only Edible Greens

MY DAILY HARVEST.... almost daily, I can get two or three okra from my 7 pots.  At least one can be plucked if not a few.  Thanks to my green thumb friend who provides me with the okra seeds and to my neighbour who planted them in his pots.  As for me, I only do the fertilizing and watering at times.... and of course, the inspection and harvesting.  LOL.... 

The process of getting these okra is considered fast, in less than a month, the fruits are reaped.  I like seeing the flowers sprouting out and after that, the okras will appear.  I do not have a grassy garden, if I do, I surely will plant more edible greens.  When this lockdown is over, I will visit the nursery to get the necessary but before that, I must go consult my "Sifu" on how and what to plant!  LOL... 

Full blown flower and okras sprouting out from this plant....
These are stubby okras... 
Crunchy and nice at this length....
Wait any longer, they will become too hard and tough to be eaten... 

And recently my friend gave me the seeds 
to this Red Okra.... 
Red when uncooked...
Turned green when cooked...
Now only I know!
Enough for me.... 
Sometimes I just steam them...
and at times stir fry with dried shrimps.... 
Accumulated batch..... 
These went into my fish curry on that day.... 
Yes, I am an "Okra Woman" .....
LOL...

  1. Red ones? Never seen those before. So pretty! And your green ones are so cute! Short and fat! LOL!!!
    Yes, my girl planted a few too and they have started to flower and bear fruit. Still small though! Hopefully, will be big enough to harvest soon so we can cook and enjoy. I like them steamed and eaten with sambal belacan just like that, no need for any fancy cooking.

  2. Wah! I wish I had okra plants in my garden. It is a good idea to plant vegetables in the garden. Can harvest fresh organic produce everyday! Your sifu must be Nancy :)

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing....

This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
