Early Morning Trip to the Backyard
Earlier today, I was in the mood to visit the little garden at the backyard. It's been a while since I've been there. It's funny that it's just a short walk from from the house but felt like it's too far away that I couldn't even check it out for a few weeks, lol!
But yes, I went for a little trip around 7 am, just before breakfast. The husband beckoned me to wear boots so I did. With the little tray and a knife, I marched on and oh my, my... our lettuce (romaine) are being invaded and overtaken by weeds, lol!
And so I harvested them without delay. Thankfully, they are still very much healthy and there were no worms, bugs nor snails in sight, so happy me, yay!
This will be on our plates for lunch as the FarmBoy loves to have them with some Korean seaweeds. Salad you say? Yep! Perfect for today's weather too, not too hot and not too cold. There are still a few heads left. Hopefully, the weeds will be a little more friendly so we can enjoy them again next week.
And while at the back, I spent a wee time to take photos of the other plants, re: citrus fruiting and flowering...
Gladiola in bloom, standing out and tall amongst the grass and weeds.
Banana fruits maturing and ready to harvest. This variety is called "Forty Day Banana" or Señorita. They are short and stout yet very sweet and don't feel cold to the stomach, hence they are my favorite type.
This has been a great trip and perhaps next time, I'll take a walk down the yard too and check on the other nature's gifts that we have around us. Did I mention we have watercress too? Yep we do and haven't seen them for sometime so it would be cool to give them a visit soon...
They are, thank you :) Always nice to harvest something we grown on our own.
Those lettuces are perfect for samgyup too hahaha. Kidding aside, your crops always look healthy. Do you put any fertilizer on it or just all natural?
Oh yes, samgyup is awesome too! I think the husband added some fertilizers (urea) on them.
I love early morning trips into the garden, especially to collect food. Everything is so fresh at that time of the day.
I have never growed romaine, only the other sort. It gets so hot here that we can only grow during the coldests months.
Enjoy and have a lovely day
That's true, veggies look crisp and healthier in the morning.
Our colder weather here allows us to have them in the garden. They are one of the easiest plants to grow.
Thank you Sarah, have an amazing Sunday too.

I've never heard of that type of banana and would not have known what it was if you didn't say it was a banana.
Not visiting the garden for a while and then taking a walk to it had to be fun seeing everything that was doing great.
We also grow lettuce, but never had any luck growing Romaine lettuce, yours looks great. Nothing like harvesting veggies and eating them the same day, so fresh.
This type of banana is not so common I guess. They have very thin skin when ripe and even when ripe, they don't go bad so easily.
It was nice to see the plants still doing well and the weeds growing along with them, lol.
Sorry to hear that you are had not any success growing romaine. They are the easiest for us to grow and we prefer them over the green or red ice.
Very interesting, I love bananas.
I just read an article about bananas by DR. Gundry, a world renowned heart surgeon and medical researcher,
To my total surprise he says that if you eat bananas eat the ones that are still green, not the ripened ones with yellow skin, or overripened ones.
The yellow ones have changed much of what is good for you, into sugars, whereas the green ones are great for gut health.
Romaine lettuce over iceberg lettuce any day.
These are fresh vegetables I like but really expensive here in my locality.
These banana we usually boil and eat like plantain or fry them.
How is the Korean seaweed salad prepared?
Maybe it's best to grow them on your own if they are expensive in the market :)
I tried boiling and frying this type of banana but I didn't like the taste hehe.
The salad is easy, we just chop the raw lettuce and the dry seaweed, add in some sliced tomatoes and salad dressings then mix them all together :)
Well, that was a productive walk to the garden
There is nothing like freshly picked produce.
It was indeed John, always good to pick veggies that we grow on our own.
Wow! What a beautiful place you have there! Now I am getting to understand why that word "farm" is in your name. 😄
Haha, thank you :) We need to grow our own because it is safer that way and it's fun too :)
Good for health and the pocket. 😄
However, I still don't get to understand why that word "nft" is in your name, especially when you don't say you like buying and holding or using NFTs. 🤯😆😅 !LOLZ !CTP
You use a pumpkin patch.
@rzc24-nftbbg, I sent you an $LOLZ on behalf of @savvytester

Well, as I know Splinterlands cards are NFTs too. That's where I got that inspiration. 😆
I think I should have appended "as much" after the "NFTs" on my last comment, because while you still like NFTs as used in Hive games (such as #Splinterlands), you focus on buying, trading, and collecting fungible tokens. 😅 !LUV !CTP

I miss having a backyard where I could plant whatever I wanted. We had various fruit trees and other plants that blessed our table with a bounty of good food. Living in an apartment sucks.
Anyway, Pinay ka pala! Well, my kabayan, please take a look at my latest blog. It is about something that would be very very useful to you. And please share it with our other kabayans here. They are going to love it too.
Great morning harvest. I love my neighborhood green, especially when the plants are edible.
It was :) Glad you have a garden in your neighborhood :) Always nice to pick fresh ones.
Did you ever think to count from how many species of trees and plants on your farm you are collecting goodies?
Voted on ListNerds!
Haha, that's a good question. I never counted but I am aware of the things we have around :) Some I may have forgotten that at times I get surprised seeing them, lol!
