Rainforest Trees At The Taiping Lake

My last trip away from home was the Singapore getaway in the middle of September, seems like a long time to me though it was only around two months ago. So when my friend suggested to go Taiping for a short trip, I didn't hesitate, after all, Taiping is just less than an hour away from Ipoh...



I started the journey early on Saturday and we had a nice stroll at the Taiping lake... due to the rain, the plants and the trees glitter and the lake is not "drought looking"…

Our unsuccessful harvest

On one of the days during the start of spring my husband and middle boy decided to plant their apples seeds. They found a small plant pot, and filled it with some soil. Every day middle boy would go and water it. Sometimes he would…

I'm an avid gardener! How did that happen?

While sitting on my patio today and watching the rain I started to ask myself, why the heck am I outside? This downpour and the heat together makes perfect weather for ruining a girl's hair and I'm tired of using the flat iron when I'm kinda sorta trying to go natural...so why in the world am I watching the raindrops?



Well, I'm watching my plants…

Non-Candy Easter Baskets

Confession: I am completely over all the Easter candy. You would think the Easter bunny lived in my house based on the amount of chocolate bunnies, chicks and carrots currently residing here. Enough already. I love sugar as much as the next girl, but for the most part, I really try and limit giving sugar to my kids. My children have already dug into the stockpile of chocolate disguised as an Easter basket that was dropped off a few days ago by their loving Grandparents. This year the Easter…

Updated Notes from the Garden

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted any notes from the garden but not to worry, things are greening up just fine!

Okay, so I might have made a teensy mistake with the Miracle Gro…I didn’t know you weren’t supposed to spray the leaves!  I was completely distraught when all of…

Mad About Melons

As I have mentioned numerous times, I have a rather large garden this summer.  Besides growing tomatoes, cucumbers, corn and basil, a quarter of my garden is being taken over by watermelon.  A small part of the watermelon patch was planned, but the rest is all due to volunteerism.

There are two varieties of watermelon in my patch, black diamonds, and the old fashioned striped variety…all with seeds.  I love watermelon and I frequently buy melons in the summer, but I don’t like the…

All Hands On Deck

Recently, Colby told me I had planted an “overambitious garden.”  He may be right, although I am not complaining…yet.  In my second year of vegetable gardening, the list of things I am learning continues to grow.

One thing I’ve learned this year is that one year might produce a bumper crop of zucchini and the next year might be a bust.  This is a bust year for zucchini.  If a bloom forms, it ends up falling off before a zucchini forms.  But, last year was a lousy year for tomatoes,…

The Suck and Sealer

There are few kitchen appliance that I love more than my Food Saver, affectionately know as the Suck and Sealer (S&S).  I love to cook and I make dinner for my family, on average, six days a week.  So, kitchen toys are a necessity…and just plain fun.

Organic Gardening with Poly Hobby Mommy

I started my garden about a month ago. I am now just updating. It’s been keeping pretty tired at the end of the day.  But, I’m getting a killer tan. All my hard work is starting to pay off.  Everything is coming up so large and beautiful.

We planted: tomatoes, jalapenos, bell pepper, cucumber, yellow squash, butter nut squash, zucchini, watermelon, cantaloupe, pumpkin, cabbage, broccoli, bok choi, lettuce, cilantro, basil, rosemary,  and chives.

The boys started plants in…

I'm not a gardener - I'm a virtual gardener

I love a beautiful garden. I love flowers, trees and butterflies. But I am coming to terms with the fact I might be a virtual gardener.

It pains me to admit it. But I think that when it comes down to it, I only like the idea of gardening. See, even though I've been really, really trying, I'm finding I'm not wild about being out there in the great outdoors. You know, with the bugs and the dirt and the worms and the, well, garden.

I have a picture window right outside…

A Bug's Life

My life has been reduced down to the level of a bug.

Bugs.  Lately, it seems to be the topic of every conversation we have.  What types of bugs do have?  What harm are they causing?  How to eradicate them?

Fava Greens and Fava Beans

Sometimes I feel so incredibly small. Swallowed by the sea of information I attempt to swim in each day. The internet does that to me sometimes. Makes me feel even tinier in scope of the big picture.



I'm one of those types of people who keep turning around, mouth agape, ready to try something new that's caught my fancy. And yet, sometimes I don't feel like I'll ever master anything. I love sewing...but don't get around to it often. I love embroidery, but can't remember the last time I… Continue

A Call to Arms

Gardening is not just a hobby; it is a full-scale war with battalions to lead, enemies to conquer, multiple fronts to manage, and the unpredictable weather that can make or break a battle plan.  It requires, skill, strategic acumen, luck, and a lot of blood, sweat, and tears.

I, of course, am the Supreme Commander of the Allied Gardening Forces.  My army of corn, tomatoes, radishes, zucchini, and other equally important divisions fight daily to produce the most beautiful and luscious…

Thumbs Up

The spring is progressing nicely.  We have managed to dodge the Toto-like weather, and my garden is planted and starting to grow.  The mixture of rain, humidity, and sunshine has contributed to my green thumb abilities.

Everything has come up except for the spinach and Swiss chard.  Well, a singular spinach plant has sprouted.  One.  I never had any luck last year, so I’m not holding out much hope for this year.  I’m not really sure if the Swiss chard is up yet, because I’ve never…

Get Out The Gardening Hat...It's Planting Time

The day has finally arrived I have been anticipating for eight months.  Planting day!  The planning started in February when I ordered sweet corn, and every time I drive in the driveway, I wistfully look at the barren, brown patch of dirt counting the days until spring.  A few weeks ago, Colby tilled my garden with his tractor and expanded it by 50%.
