Life In Our Neighborhood

This is just lovely. I gave about half a kilo of freshly picked calamansi (Philippine lime) to one of our neighbors and she gave me back two lemons from her backyard plus a pot of Korean ginseng. This is the first time I’ve seen a Korean ginseng plant and she told me that the flowers are red like berries. She’s been growing this pot for about a year now from the mother plant. Ginseng has lots of medicinal value. What I’ve only seen in pictures are the roots of  matured plant. Really looking forward to seeing it grow. Will take some pictures tomorrow and attach them here.

Last week, another neighbor gifted me with a Zamia plant. I re-potted it into three pots. Aren’t I lucky? These are quite expensive when you buy them in garden centers. Early Christmas gifts, what do you say?

Zamia

Zamia…I love its shiny leaves.

I put them out in full morning sun everyday  until around 10am. The three pots are thriving pretty well. I am planning to transfer some of my Crossandra plants tomorrow  and use them as ground covers outside my bedroom window. I hope I would be able to wake up early to do a little gardening.
