I have this unopened seed packet of eggplants which I bought last year. It’s one of the two I bought because I wanted to have more veggies at our small yard. One survived and it is still bearing fruit until now, just one at a time though. I don’t have much space in the garden so I mixed the seed with the ground cover ornamental plants at the side of the house.  On the packet was written that it will mature in 60 to 75 days and I was thinking by January next year, I’ll have more eggplants if I am lucky enough. Direct planting of seeds is sometimes better than having them first as seedlings then transferring them to the soil later on.

The garden looks presentable again, we have trimmed the carabao grass last weekend, cut unwanted branches of my Santan shrubs and also pruned my  Fukien Tea plants. It is getting hotter by the day so daily watering is a must.  I usually stay in the garden early in the morning. Our two calamansi trees are fruiting non-stop. I have picked more than a kilo  a few days ago and divided it between  my three neighbors. They are always grateful for these small favours. Calamansi is good for marinade whether it is fish or meat, it could also be used as juice (hot or cold).  We also use it as dipping sauce for other viands like fried fish or pork chop.

I set aside reading for a while, just got so engrossed with Wordscape last night. I have used up my earned coins because the clues are simply too difficult to form into words but it is very enjoyable.  I uninstalled those block games on my tab and only have this one. You can learn more from it.  I am encountering words that I didn’t know before.
