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!
