Hey Actifitters and Steemians,
Hope you’re all having a great start to the weekend, I know I am, TGIF. Lol. Ok, my day started with an early morning walk, the air was very fresh and you could perceive the fragrance of flowers, this was due to the fact that there was heavy rain last night which must have washed away the dust from the roads and plants.
Work was the usual and not really anything new to report in that aspect. I came back early because my wife informed me that there was only one container of soup in the freezer and since tomorrow is Saturday it was better we went to the early morning market and cook 2 big different types of soups that we’ll pack into the fridge. City life, everybody is so busy no one has the time or energy to go to the market daily and cook fresh food daily. We needed 3 vegetable; Waterleaf, Pumpkin Leaf (known locally as Ugu) and Bitterleaf (we will be buying this one because after the last harvest it has not grown to give us the quantity we need if we harvest it again) and they are all of them in our compound.
Harvesting the vegetables is not an easy thing, for the waterleaf you have to cut them in such a way that you leave studs and some of the seeds where you harvest them so that the ones left will regenerate and continue growing while the seeds germinate and bring forth more veggies. Waterleaf is one useful plant that grows like grasses, they don’t need so much effort to manage.
Pumpkin leave (Ugu) has a lot of variety of it, so what you have in your country might not look exactly as the one shown hear but they all have similar features and it is the tacky to harvest. It is a crawling plant and it has this sting like feature it uses to grab onto other plants and objects. You try not to cut the mother branch because that gives life to many other branches, for Ugu, you cut the extended branches.
Harvested pumpkin leaf
You might be wondering why we harvested them today, well that is because we are going to the early morning market and once we come back it’s going to be cooking, cooking and more cooking.
It was almost dark by the time we were done so I went to have a shower and then lay on the couch watching the news while waiting for dinner. My back is giving me signs that I’m putting it under a lot of pressure. That was it guys.
