Herbs and vegetables

I enjoy cooking for my family and I love to use my home grown herbs and vegetables from my small garden.

After my relocation to Malaysia, I was exposed to more herbs and vegetables, which I take as a bonus in my knowledge and started to eat more vegetables and herbs.

My favorite vegetables in my country was tomato, cucumber, pepperoni, radish, egg plants and broccoli and we have the chance to enjoy them during summer and autumn seasons only.

In Malaysia you can enjoy the vegetables all year long.

My dream is just to open my kitchen door, step in my herbs garden and pluck whichever plant I want, which already I started to work on and continuing to add more varieties to it.

Some of my vegetables and herbs that I grow in my graden are: Green small lime, Lime Tree (Pokok Limau Purut), Curry, Cosmos caudatus (Ulam Raja), Ulam, Salad, Green bean, Chilli, Lemon grass (Serai),  Vietnamese mint (Daun kesom), Peppermint (Pudina), Thai Basil (Daun kemangi) and Chinese broccoli (Kailan).

I also have fruit plants such as raspberry ( brought here from my country)  mulberry, and mango.
