What's Growing Nicely in My Garden


It's nice to finally grow gulay at kung ano ano pa in my backyard. All along I thought may curse ako sa pagtatanim. I think nakatulong din na we have a good soil in Camella. It's the reddish, mud type na when mixed with a loose type of soil (malay ko kung ano ang title nun) eh maganda sa halaman.
Actually, lately Im hooked with gardening and at how to get rid of those pesky bugs and other critters. Aba, inubos nila ang dahon at bulaklak ng five fingers ko. Buti na lang tinira ang mga tangkay kaya awa ng Diyos tumutubo na ulit ang dahon. 

here are some veggies and flowering plants that growing in our yard:



five fingers, a gift from my mom. it grew to almost 3 feet na andaming bulaklak tapos paggising ko isang umaga kalbo na :(

red sili, pangsawsawan. I don't remember planting this but it grew anyway


bell peppers. this one grew to twice more than in the picture. I forgot who gave this to me



Ampalaya. Abundantly growing in my backyard, maraming gustong bumili pero I give them away kasi nakakahiya naman ibenta. I don't eat ampalaya anyway :) This one came from my mom also.


my Papaya tree, i think from my MIL. It's growing amidst the ampalaya and alugbati. I'm eagerly waiting for this to bear fruits. There's one more papaya tree growing in the front yard :)


And now my fave of all, the Malunggay trees growing in the front and backyard. From my mom.
Dahil paborito ko ang Tinola, sulit na sulit sa amin ang dahon malunggay and sili. 

Ahh, actually wala talaga akong binili sa mga ito, puro bigay lang. 

Meron naman akong binili kahit papano:



this flowering plant that gives off a minty smell, hindi ko rin alam title nito but it's very colorful


Santan that yields white and yellow flowers

Basil leaves, those with blue bear markers. Kinareer ko pa naman ang pagtanim dito pero hindi naman tumubo 
Medyo sablay talaga ako sa mga packet of seeds na binili sa grocery.

Bagong stress reliever/hobby ko gardening. Baka it comes with age lol.
I always wanted to go to Manila Seedling Bank but never have the time. We always pass by that place going to work and I always see these nice flowering plants.
