    Dragon fruit (pitaya)

    They say the soil acidity in ph level should be atleast 7. Anything lower than that and the plant's ability to produce fruits is greatly affected.

    Question How many edible plants do you grow?

    @Steve Yes. Sometimes they tend to grow like that in the photo. Sometimes they curve while growing but eventually they would straighten up. There are also those rare times when a coconut tree would split into two and both heads would bear fruits. @Mark Yes. It our case, we are highly...

    Question Is free compost from the dump/tip safe to use in the garden?

    Yes and no. From experience my neighbor is growing bumper crops from the soil that used to be a local street garbage dump area. That was years ago (when people stopped throwing garbage) tho. I just hope there are no toxic materials being thrown at the dump. We got a homemade compost pit where...

    Question How many edible plants do you grow?

    Hi Oskar! Sorry I cant answer your question scientifically as an agriculturist could but I would like to share some observations. Our soursop tree would develop fruit buds during colder months (december) that would be around 23°C When I planted mine, it was easy to grow just like a regular...

    My Selection Of Eggplant

    Mark, I boil them first. I've never had raw eggplants before. btw, here is an indigenous recipe which uses eggplant. I think you can try it since most of the ingredients grow in your garden. http://panlasangpinoy.com/2009/09/09/filipino-food-vegetable-dish-pinakbet-pakbet-tagalog-recipe/

    My Selection Of Eggplant

    Eggplants! I love them. I usually make eggplant salad every morning. I like that round variety of eggplant! I've never seen one in real life though and the color white eggplant fascinates me. I also wonder if long red variety would be available or thrive here. I want to amuse my neighbors.lol

    Veg Showcase Snake Bean (standard Green)

    I love this veggie! I remember when I was a 10 and my dad would plant it! We usually cook snake beans with coconut milk and smoked fish, sometimes with soy sauce and vinegar much like "Adobo". I would make this the top 5 on my list this month after mushrooms, okra, bitter gourd and sunflowers...
