Hey everyone how are ya ! I’ve been away for long and am so happy to be back. All you lovely people left me such wonderful messages while i was away.Thank you so much! Well I’m back now and all ready to start blogging again. I left HK for India – was there for about 10 days , dunno how my time flew away there and have been here in Ghana since the last 6 weeks. Just managed to get the net connection at home today so well there’s my excuse for not being around for so long … πŸ™‚ What have i been up to all this while here in Ghana , actually nuthing much, just soaking up the sun, pigging out on Ghanaian food and chillin out. Oh ya and working occasionally ! I haven’t really taken any interesting food shots lately but what i did do as soon as i got connected is, i clicked a few snaps around my house to share with you all the wonderful things growing here.

As soon as i got here i planted some sweet basil and some mint, ‘ cuz i know for sure that these two grow really well and really fast here. And u always need these herbs around in the kitchen.

MINTΒ 


BASIL FLOWERS

Here’s a lime tree … nothing like having your own produce, when ever u need some just go outside and pluck them !!!

And a custard apple tree, oh how i love these fruits. They re so creamy n sweet and full of flavour. And its in this time of the year that the trees bear this fruit.I always thought there were grown only in India but when i arrived in Ghana 4 yrs ago i found them here too and was ecstatic. So well now i have them growing in my very own garden – 2 trees !

CUSTARD APPLE


This one was a pure gift from mother nature to me. I locked up my place n left the last time and when i got back i found this in my garden.I didn’t even plant a seed ! its happened by pure cross pollination.Thats how fertile Africa is !

WATERMELON


And last but not the least I’ve planted some Ghanaian chillis as well. Better know at papito peppe .Only thing is that they’re still young and haven’t started bearing the fruit yet. So i guess i’ll have to wait.One of the many reasons why i love being here is that there is so much place around , i get to fulfill my desires of have my own little organic garden and plant things and look after them.Walk out with scissors in my hand while I’m cooking to cut off something growing in my own garden. I’m trying to get my hands on some seeds of vegetables that grow in this climatic condition.I even attempted to plant a pomegranate tree but my cutting died as it was not a proper one, i just got it from someone else’s tree.But I’m not giving up, will definately try again.So with this i end my post. Will be back soon . CHEERS !
