Not sure if it because of the heat wave, both potato plants suddenly withered and so we decided to dig them out. To our pleasant surprise, we harvested quite a number of potatoes! Even though they ain’t big, we are really excited about our first harvest. 😀
Besides the potatoes, both kids also harvested our first two cherry tomatoes. We have two tomato plants in our small vegetable garden, but only one of them is bearing fruits. I wonder why the other one has not bear anything yet. Hmm…
Anyway, we brought the tomatoes back and ate them fresh. Boy were they sweet tasting! I can’t wait to have the next ripen tomato soon!! 😛
Our french beans are doing well too.
As this is my first time experimenting with vegetable gardening, I only planted 6 seeds, and they were so easy to grow. All 6 of the bean plants are currently bearing one or two beans each. Hopefully I can harvest all of them together by the next few days or weeks and if I have enough, I will make a simple french beans omlette for the children to try. Anyway, because it is so easy to grow the french beans, I think I will try again next year. 😉
This is one of the few carrot plants that is still surviving.
I wonder when we can harvest them.
Our onions flowered! I think I am going to wait and see if I can save some seeds for planting next year.
I have been using the green onions from my garden for quite some time already. I really love the convenience of having fresh scallions right from my own garden to my kitchen. Not sure if I’m biased, but I find the taste of homegrown scallions seems to be stronger and sweeter. This is another vegetable that I will want to plant again next year.
Oh, I forgot to take the photo of my Korean Sesame plants.
Well, they are all growing very well too. When they are big enough, I will harvest the leaves and eat it with BBQ meat like the Koreans. I will share with you how it taste like when I get to eat them, ok. 😉
