The corn hasn’t grown much... hmm... The gotu kola survived the transplant! Though it kinda looks like it’s shrunk. The Indian Borage didn’t keep the aphids away 😔. You can see they’re attacking the tips of the basil because the ants do this weird thing of stuffing soil around them. Looks like I’ve got to… Continue reading 25th April 2021 Garden Update
https://youtu.be/B_vJpGTYL1M I had another happy day in the gym today! I tried this blue climb multiple times and came very close to completing it in this video but slipped off on the top hold. Had to attempt this another time before completing it!

The second pot of ladies' finger plants is also doing better now that the young plants are getting more sunlight. It's interesting how a couple of the leaves… Continue reading 24 Jan 2021 Garden Update
It turns out that the little “finger” was a flower bud! Sadly I didn’t manage to get a photo of it in full bloom, but it looks like the flower has a light yellow colour with dark brown spots. The fruit itself grew amazingly quickly. The flower bloomed on the 12th (Tuesday) and by Saturday,… Continue reading 16 Jan 2021 Garden Update

PetMart Pte Ltd - 151 Serangoon North Ave 2 #01-79 Singapore 550151 Above is the box the worms came in. The comment in the… Continue reading 9 Jan 2021 Garden Update
