Fruits of My Labor

Hello u'ol. Yesterday evening was spent doing "domestic" thing and gardening. The recent find of rosali IKEA duvet coveris finally used as a table cover, since it matches the roses in the white chair. I don't dare to eat on this table, for the fear of spilling kicap on the delicate cloth (I need to buy "basahan" table).


Whimsy finally did re potting of 2 newly purchased lime tree, and a baby christmas tree. Do u'ol remember my tomato plant and onion buds planted in last month post? The tomato finally ripen (Gosh! after 1 month!), and the onion grew few inches shoots. Dinner was fruit of my labors (LOL!!!). 1 ripe tomato and few scallion (daun bawang, chissss!) with curry maggi noodles. They taste like tomato and scallion. However, I do taste a distinct sweetness to the tomato. Or I'm just imagining the sweetness of my own homegrown veg?

Pic of the tomato before being consume, check out the pretty reddish orangey color.

Whimsy baby christmas tree. Hopefully they will grow tall fast in time for christmas.

Lime tree.

Onion buds planted in a box container. Maybe I should paint the box white....
