A novice… but a gardener no doubt…


Fresh radish (C) Lrong Lim

The temperature dips to just below zero in the early mornings.
It is cold, at least for a warm-blooded Kedahan like me.
Been trying out gardening for the last three or four years.
Lots of failures, but lots of fun too.
The current winter cold is a little too harsh on my cute little veggies, except for the red radish as shown above.
As salads, they tasted really fresh and crunchy… delicious…
One of my pals said, why waste your time gardening when you can easily and cheaply buy any veggie you want from the market?
True, true…
But it is the fun of doing it, and the joy of ‘having to learn’ the ropes of cultivating… chemical-free, that is…
Through the seasons, I see butterflies hovering… colorful little birds perched on the fragile bamboo fence… and the mantis, voraciously devouring the grasshopper…
I love it…
