Update after a short break

Is this big enough for harvest ??
Had I knew that gardening vegetable needed fertilizer, 
could have harvested all these long ago and not wait till all of these become old...
What a novice I am, HA !

Just an update

It has been a while since last posted here.
so, let's see...

The two Romaines...

The Amaranths...
They don't seem to grow much.... I wonder why?
Perhaps they need to be fed with fertilizers? 
Unfortunately, I'm novice, I don't know what kind - Organic / artificial, how frequent to put, where is the best place with best pricing to get ...
I also notice most "green finger" bloggers do not detail this ... may be I'm not looking hard enough.
This one seems like it's budding ... if it is, it's a failed effort.

Looky look, it's the third one....

I meant the third leaf....
It's amazingly fast how this romaine is growing....
Hopefully it's not shooting for the sky too soon.

Aren't they just adorable...

Romaine Lettuce - Seeds

Since there are no takers in the post to guess which picture is showing the seed of Romaine Lettuce,
think I'll just share my favourite shot of it...

Do they look like seed of some weeds? haha...

KL vegetable garden's first lettuce seedling !

The romaine lettuce seedling
of the
experimental "plug it in the soil and grow"

The power of Mother Nature

Guess I have to bid an early fond farewell to the 1 & only surviving Romaine Lettuce experimental plant of mine.
Never underestimate the power of mother nature, the wind, in this case.
In just one windy strong storm, it did the below....
but some of the flower buds are showing me they are not surrendering...
And that, my friend, is Nature's Instinct!

Everything, good or bad, will come to an end

Everything will come to an end, except those non-natural, artificial stuffs such as plastic we consume and throw to the land fill.
Well, today we don't have to worry about that as it's the romaine lettuce we are talking about.
It is showing sign of shrivel as it has done its job of propagation through seeding.

and... when something ends, there's always a new beginning somewhere... haha.
 seed from the lettuce above, germinating, 2-day old.
we shall see if this will grow into those with the familiar look we buy from market.

But anywhere you touch the stalk, you'll be greeted with sticky milk that smells "GREEN" !

Red Amaranth - Full month ( 满月, man yue) !

Gosh, it's already a month !
Look how cute they are.

It's a very diversified world, it's delicate and it's confirmed that it's under threat...
Have you taken the time to appreciate / protect it or take note how lives grow around you, 
especially those lovely, good for health veggies that you eat ?

and NOW, forth leaf is in sight !

Budding Romaine Lettuce

My earlier suspicion is correct. 
The only surviving romaine lettuce plant I bought and grew by just sticking it into the pot with soil is now showing signs of flowering.
*exciting* can't wait to see if it'll have seeds for me... hee hee...
