Fresh Harvest

It’s been a while since I last posted here. having four blogs to maintain makes one neglect the others. Anyway, I’ll be updating this site from time to time, I just got so used in staying at Dreams and Escapes. It’s nice to see our modest vegetable garden bearing fruits again.

Fresh ampalaya, jute leaves and calamansi. Jute or what we call saluyot in the vernacular is medicinal too. Three days ago, I harvested more than kilo of calamansi (Philippine lime).  My son and I love calamansi juice and having a glass of freshly squeezed calamansi is better than commercially produced fruit drinks.

We also have this jackfruit growing nicely. Maybe in a month or two, it would be ready for harvest.

And these new shoots would be perfect for that yummy “ginataang langka”.

About arlene

It's been some years since I started this blog. Supposedly, it was only to share my plight as a cancer patient and survivor but over the years it has somehow evolved into something personal about my life and my family. So really glad to have met you all wonderful people out there. Someone commented once that he liked the title of this blog, Dreams and Escapes. Dream on, there are more things in life than we really think. Be happy, you only live once. Sometimes you also need an escape from the vicissitudes of life and this blog helps me cope. Welcome. Feel free to leave your comments, I do welcome them.

    Dear Ms. Arlene,

    I stumbled upon your blog months ago when I was searching for photos of local backyard gardens.

    However, I seldom make comments or give likes on blogs because I usually feel embarrassed.

    Nevertheless, I made contact because I am nominating you for the One Lovely Blog Award. It is informational, inspirational, and very interesting especially for gardeners.
