This blog purpose is to share my success and failures in gardening in a tropic. I have no particular liking to any plant/ flower but once it caught my attention there is no other way for me but to have it. Since I’ve all the local plant that i fancy, now i cast my eyes far away, temperate flower/plant. Hence the existence of My Experimental Garden Blog. Hope you enjoy my blog.

yard long bean
I've been growing this bean for so many years .I love it because it is thin
and very long, the longest is at 26 inch. The seeds were given to me by my
aunt. I grow my veggie in very big pot (18 inch diameter). As usual i put sheep
manure and dried grass in the bottom half of the pot and commercially prepared
growing media in the upper half. The first plant that i grew in this pot was
sweet corn, followed by tomato then sweet corn again. Then i grow this yard
long bean. This time i put a tad too much sheep manure i guess, because the
bean look very happy and the leaves are dark green. Last week i have a good
chat with my bean plant, this is what i told the plant “today i cut a few of
your leaves, if you do not flower by next week, I’ll turn you into compost.
Four days ago i saw a few flower buds.
