My Vegetable Pechay
November 14, 2017 10:59pm CST
They're grown now and just right to harvest. Actually yesterday I took few leaves of pechay and put it to my soup based beef broth. That was my first harvest of the vegetable. Its nice when you have vegetable backyard gardening because you can always have something to pick when your fridge is empty. The good thing of your own garden is that you can grow it according to your preference. If you want it to be organic, you can always do it. Next day I will gather some leaves of pechay again.

I wish I could do something similar. The weather here could be harsh suddenly, that end up killing almost anything green and not in giant tree form (the very hot wind from the desert about 45degrees C, 113F! Imagine having that sort of winds for a few days every week for a few weeks!)
@ilocosboy We checked the cost, a small one already close to the thousand dollars (US) mark. Too ridiculous! Yet we saw some Chinese overseas students's parents, lovingly planting plants from seeds, and covered the young plants with newspapers. Quite hilarious but the plants did grow to our surprise. (They had to water the plants several times a day during warm weather!)
i really love this leafy vegetable. when i was not sick of RHD, i would cook this with a can of local sardines, and put much broth in it. until i knew dark green leafy vegetables were not allowed for me, i had to just eat the stalks.

I like this vegetable garden very much. When we were living in a province we were maintaining a good variety of vegetables as well as green leaves. We were not even maintaining any fridge. The city life has changed the life totally.
