NICE Database garden you have with lots of spics like the trinid scropion chillies! Sure very hot! However, Do keep up with the progress as those chillies family are prone to whitheflies.

I like the basil section and the kampong celery and spices section!. haha

When the grow to adults to take care them well so they can provides you with lots of harvest.

Hi

What a great collection of edible plants!!! I am into veg gardening but unable to achieve half of what you have!!! I am done with chilies and potatoes because of the bugs! I am into xiao bia chye, mint (miserable cos attacked by bugs), basil and pandan.
How do I get to plant some galangal? I like to use them in my cooking and they do not keep for long in the fridge.
Love the plant stand too. Good height to catch the sun. Where did you get them from?
Thanks for sharing.

Bridgehouse.
