My Backyard Garden


I wanted to show you my little backyard garden. I am so glad that this house has some space at the backyard for me to plant some herbs. Not like in PA that I have to plant everything in a flower pot of containers. The backyard is quite bit but I still need some time to get it organize. So for the time being I just plant some flowers and herbs at a corner. The next season I will get Carlos to boil some planter boxes so I can plant vegetables. Here are some pictures on the progress of my little garden.

The little garden looks pretty bare when I first stared.
I planted some herbs.
Cilantro
Rosemary
Mint
Parsley
Thyme
Daun Kesum
Thai Basil
Lemongrass
Sage
Sweet Basil
Curry Plant - I have to plant this in a pot so I can bring it into the house during winter.
Strawberries


Meyer Lemon
After 3 months it bear some fruits

Some flowers to add colors to the little garden.

Gert,
You have added so many new plants since I was there. So gemuk and sihat walafiat all your plants especially the herbs.It's going to be winter soon there, your Thai basil can survive kah?For the kesum, you hv to water them a lot or else all will kering. I hv to wait for u to come over so that u can tanam for me the serai. Don't know why everytime I tanam, sure mati.. Lol! My late mom say my tangan panas. But then, even when my sister tanam for me pun mati.. Lol!!!! Love how u hv transformed ur garden... niceeeee:)

Wow! Its must be nice to have Californian weather. Can grow such a wide range of plants. From temperate to tropical. I have trouble growing cilantro from seed. They won't sprout! And i cannot find cilantro plants for sale in nursery, only in the supermart. After years of trying I have only one sprouting which i enjoyed for quite a few months and then it died from lack of water.

Enjoy your plants. I hope you will post more of their photos so we can share your joy. Thank you.
