Gardening – Outdoor and Indoor

I love gardening and if I can pick from my garden the herbs or ingredients that were used in my cooking, that would be extra bonus. It’s so easy to make me happy, heheh.

So far, my so-called garden is a lil’ patch at my front yard. I grew kaffir lime, turmeric leaves, galangal and a generous papaya tree (which I did not plant – it grew up by itself and has been producing endless fat papayas that I just gave away to neighbors, family and passers-by almost everyday). Thank God for papaya trees.

My mini jaguar was lazing under the sun with the papaya tree as the background.

The rests are just flower plants like birds of paradise, periwinkle and many others. (Post borrowed from my other blog)

I’m working on adding up my collection of herbs and the idea of growing them indoors in tiny lil’ pots is not a bad one either. Fresh herbs directly to your plates. I like the sound of it. Maybe some lemongrass, daun pandan, cili api, curry leaves and basil would be nice. After reading this post, I’m all excited!

Time for herbs shopping!
