i have been sick with flu for two days now. though laundry is piling (mountainous, actually) i have no choice but to be in bed or drink fresh ginger ale (salabat) for my cough.

this morning with eagerness to get well and be active again, i went out for some sunlight and fresh air.
guess what i discovered in my backyard?Voila! if you want to find out what's in our compound's backyard i took shots of the bounty in my backyard! Thanks to the neighbor who labored to keep the garden. Here they are:

eggplant still waiting to grow fully but they-are-a-plenty!
Eggplant Creole, anytime!

Patola! la-la-la-la
Fresh but with (a little) part consumed by hungry insects!

Papaya for fresh achara, tinola, ginataan, etc!


Chill out with enough chili to make into kimchi for side dish!

JalapeƱo Chili grows for fresh sinigang, Bicol express, etc. Grab one!

Alogbati or Alugbati?
Whichever is the spelling i was delighted to see them in my backyard.

How about you, what's in your backyard?

    Sorry to hear that you got sick. Hope you're feeling much better now.

    You have a rich garden of veggies. I like alugbati too. Not many people eat it because it's more of an acquired taste.
