My Friend's CG

I had an opportunity to visit a friend's CG in Sengkang and it is really beautiful. One can only say that you can never find another one quite like it. Let me have the pics do the talking.

Melon Fence

I have torn down the two planter stands to make this melon fence possible. I am growing melons from the seeds given to me by a kind forumer after reading his post about his melon fence.
The idea is to use the fence as a trellis to support the growing melons since this area has got quite a bit of the morning sun.

The seedlings below are the Xiang Gua melons and they produce a lovely oblong, yellow melon if I manage to grow them to fruitation.

See, the male flowers have been spotted. Now to wait patiently for the female flowers to appear.
Exciting times ahead .... if they survive the snail attack.

Here's the planter with the Taiwanese Mini Melon seedlings and the last three of my bowl gourd seedlings. The seedlings here had to battle the snails as I was less vigilant here. So maybe got to germinate seedlings again .... haiz!

My one and only Bowl Gourd seedling left.

Staircase Done

Finally the staircase up the slope is completed. The next stage is to decide what suitable plants to beautify the sides of the steps. The pots of plants are just placed there temporarily until we have propagated enough of the suitable plants to plant them there. Stay tune!

Missing adenium B ( 9th Month )

This has happened before with my other plants in the CG but this baby taken is especially painful cos' I've yet to see the fruitation of the adenium growing project. It is a passion to want to grow them and then see them flower. HAIZ!

The ade babies have definitely matured after moving them into bigger pots and the fertilizer feeding with Be-1 and chix dung have done their work in making the foliage greener.

Sugar Canes

Here's the sugar cane growing in the CG .... no flowers yet, but the leaves do flop a lot! They seem pretty easy to plant. Just need to stick the sugar cane into the soil and leave it alone ... LOL
