DIY: making dried fruits


first time making own dried kaki.
if you have wild kaki available in your area,
i suggest you try.  they are absolutely good!
just peel skin, tie on the top,
and hang them outdoor where cool breath
come through about 7-10days or less
depend on how cold your area is.

hot summer day

it's been so hot lately.  in the balcony, basil is growing
more than i can keep up with eating.  they are getting
gigantic and now began flowering and producing seed. 
today, i trimed some more for pizza.  bitter melon
is in their last growth spurts and there are about
several more fruits to be harvested in few days. 
although, it won't be any harvest any time soon,
two of my new veges, potatoes and asparagus, are 
doing well, growing taller and greener.  it is
interesting to see new vege growing like this
in own place.  thyme, oregano, mint, and other herbs are
spreading their roots to search any available water on
the concreat while i am gone to work during the
day.  by the end of the day when i can finally 
water them, they become already wilted. 
as soon as i shower them with plenty of fresh
water, they seem to jump out and realived.
summer is all about seeing plants growing, listening
to cicada sing ...and eating water melon!

first harvest: bitter melon salad pickle

i was able to harvest my very first bitter melon this
afternoon and made salad pickle(pickle salad) with it.
cabbage, bitter melon, carrot, cucumber
all slice very thin,
sprinkle bit of salt and let it sit for 10-15 minutes
add vinegar & sugar
chill in the refrigerator for about 2hrs
i thought my oregano never flowers...
but finally blooming this year.  this means,
i can probably collect the seed!
