These posts seem to be coming in succession, due to my sudden increase in free timings. And thanks to Hyderabad power supply ( touchwood, no powercut since two days).
During summer, after the repairs and destruction of garden few hardy plants were doing well. One of them was the bottle gourd. It had a good shaded area , with morning sun and evening shade. Therefore I was pleased to see these
With neighbors appreciating my gardening skills, from such fine examples on the top of the house, I was very happy. I let it grow some more and one fine day I brought them to the kitchen.
I was watching closely for further fruits, and searched the plant daily. The flowers were withering away , and the heat increased. Gradually the plant died.
As if I will give up so easily on the Gourds. I have planted some more,in April/May, and now many are swaying in the wind, with nice white flowers. Out of which one did fruit and the villain had attacked it ( Mentioned in the earlier post). More are on the way, and I am going to wrap them.
By the way I found the villain of the vegetables today. This morning when I visited the terrace , I saw a big monkey strolling around. I was aghast. We didn’t really have this problem before. So this fellow had come today for his breakfast to my terrace and jumped over the all my neighbours’ too. Hope he wont come anymore.
