While maintaining a patio garden isn't as back breaking as having a lawn, I still have to set aside some weekends for major cleaning. I removed the bitter gourd vines today as they were smothering my dracena. I have blue pea growing in the same pots now. These creepers are not as aggressive as bitter gourd.
They're small but pretty.
When I was walking by the fruit stall this morning, I stood outside for a long time, contemplating if I should ask the seller for the pineapple crowns in their trash bin. Finally, I went up to him and asked politely if I could have the crowns to grow in the school garden. I'm quite shameless I know.
Here they are, sitting pretty in a pot of soil. I'm trying to root them first before bringing them to school.
