Okra Plant

It has been my routine to work a bit in my container garden right after my morning run. A bit of weeding, transplanting (one plant/day), and watering. Since I’ll be sweating from my run and weather is too hot this time of the year, I hose down my head and neck too – like a plant. As for my okra plants, the pods are coming out these past few days. Okra is one vegetable I couldn’t let a week pass without it, a slimy delight added generously in laswa, pork sinigang, or ginataang gulay. I also like steamed okra to be dipped in soy sauce with calamansi.

Edible Winter Ornamental Plant

I have noted the presence of potted kale in various places in Japan this winter. From what I gather this vegetable is frost resistant and that is why it is pretty common at winter time though not for eating but for the beautification of their doorsteps.

Pandan plant

As I travel in Melaka, I took some plant snapshots here and there…That pot of pandan on the wooden floor against the wall is a pretty sight.

And another pandan

I wonder if the human being behind that potted pandan uses it for purposes other than green ornamentation.

Meanwhile, those untamed hanging container plants against a wall with artwork caught my attention, for it seems that the water dripping from clothes has something to do with its flourishing state. Like an unintentional irrigation system.

And then there was this traditional house in Kampung Morten with potted plants giving an impression of pleasantness and hospitable atmosphere, and not the stiff ‘architectural digest’ garden look.
