One day, hubby and I had a compulsive interest in starting our herbs garden right in our house compound. So we decided to encourage each others in pursuing our herbs garden dream.
We started off by purchasing these 2 basils. We bought from a supermarket and the next day, I transferred them to bigger pots. I used organic compost for most of my plants and no exception for my herbs. Basils are easily to tend to. Need to snip and make sure the soil was moist and they have adequate morning sunshine.

Next easy-to-plant herb would be mint. I got these mint cuttings from a friend and now waiting for them to grow roots before planting them in pots.
And if you are wondering what to do with those empty cookie tins at home, you can recycled them in your garden. Turned it into tin pot for your plant. Just drill or make few holes underneath and place stones on the holes before add in soil and start planting.
And look at tomato cherries sprouting out from this tin pot.
Ok, enough posting of me being a gardener for a day. Lol.
Don't you like a simple home-cooked dinner?? One evening while hubby had a dinner date outside, I whipped a simple dinner for me and kids.
Stir fried pea shoots with carrot bites and fried ngoh hiang. Just what I love. My favourite dishes. And the kids did not complained too.
