Many says I have a green thumb because what ever I planted it will grow. I may or may not believe it but my secret of making my plants grow is that I talked to them!! Yup even if they are a seeds yet or just a tiny little plant I talked to them. I encourage them to grow and I always appreciate them telling them I am waiting for their roots to come out or buds or anything just talked to them. And I can vouch for it that they have senses because it will not take long my plants would just grow fast. A side note...I bought this Malungay for $25 and it's like a baby to me lol!!
As a Filipino I missed eating Malungay or Moringa. Malungay is a tiny leaves from a little tree. In the Philippines, almost every backyard has it and growing up we cook this leaves together with fish, or mixed it with other vegetable as soup. Now as they found out that there are plenty of nutritious components in this plant they start to make tea, pills for health purposes. Visit this site for more information Moringa oleifera
Then last two weeks ago I went to Asian store and found Kangkong or Ipomoea aquatica (Chinese spinach or water spinach). I cooked it with fish (of course) for fish soup or sinigang. I remember my mom taught me that the hard stalk can be replanted. And since it's still cold outside I soaked it with rain water and few days after the roots came out and so the leaves!! Today I am going to replant them to a pot and for now they will stay inside the house since here in Michigan it still cold outside. Here are the photos and enjoy!
After I cut some of the little branch, leaves just came back. At the bottom of the pot are Marigolds ready to be planted on the ground.
Now here are my cuttings which are growing fast!
Looks like I'm gonna be busy this afternoon I only hope it will warm up.
