Vegetable Garden Updates

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. πŸ˜€

Besides the potatoes, both kids also harvested our first two cherry tomatoes. πŸ™‚ 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!! πŸ˜›

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. πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ˜‰
