Can I Send You Pechay by Mail?

Don Domeng has a vegetable patch. I think piapot has blogged about it many times in the past. There are all sorts of chili, tomato, eggplant, okra, raddish, and pechay there, and mustasa too, but I don’t know what is mustasa in English, do you know?It is a green leafy vegetable that they tell me has a somewhat bitter taste that is perfect for salads.

It looks so good to the eye. But only to look at for me really because I don’t eat vegetables, but I’ve been trying lately. LOL. Vegans shoot me.

This is Don Domeng's vegetable patch. Look at the logo at the entrance!

We are really very proud of this veggie garden, for a hobby it does pay a lot LOL. We tease Don Domeng that he is now a maggugulay [veggie seller] and he would laugh back telling us that he will be known as Pechay King soon enough. And did I mention that his veggie patch is located at the back of his beach resort here in our place? LOL. You are all welcome to come if you like, we are here in Bataan, next province from Pampanga in region III.

Yesterday my mentor together with some American peace corps volunteer visited us in the resort. Of course we had to take them to the veggie patch,  and I think they had lots of fun.

This is my mentor uprooting veggies that she'll take home. It looks like she is swimming in the veggies right?

All was well actually, hmmm… maybe until I scratched my thigh on a piece of wood.

That's the huge scratch. I'm like an emo or something. LOL.

Oh my, I think my thighs look so huge in that picture! LOL. The wound is a day old today and it is very painful. When I got home last night i immediately showed it to my man, oh it’s so dramatic. LOL.

But still I had a lot of fun. I will post the pictures of yesterday’s sunset another time. It is breathtaking. You’ll get to see it, no worries, maybe tomorrow.

Now the only thing on my mind is this, can I send you pechay by mail?

  2. In my dream house, I’d like to have a vegetable garden. Isn’t it so nice to say “Anak, magluluto ako, kuha ka nga ng pechay sa labas.”

    I had to laugh about you showing your wound to the Man, because I also do that. It’s so nice to make paawa because them guys make awa naman!

  3. chiquesan,
    sige, sige kaso hindi pa game eh baka next year pa yun, january.

  4. Wow, that’s a pretty dandy vegetable garden. Being a salad and veggie freak, I love the sight of these things 🙂

    Too bad your good looking thigh was marred by a scratch.. well, since you’re a nurse, I won’t hazard a guess in advising you how to fix it hehehe 🙂

  5. chiquesan,
    oo nga dapat bumalik ka by raddish harvest time. i like raddish. one of the few veggies that i eat so eating what i actually harvested would be great!

    gmacomics,
    oo regression no? LOL oo masarap talaga, we had nilagang baka yesterday and today we have ginataang sili and caldereta. yum!

    ched,
    correct! kaso napupuwing ako lagi. i think i need more practice.

    panda,
    LOL that is so cool. mas malaki pa ang burger kesa sa amount ng coleslaw ah? cheater! LOL oo malaki nga maga pa. pero hindi na masyado ngayon. when i see it natatawa ko, emo-emohan kasi.

    bertN,
    eh di garden of tomatoes ang iraise mo pwede naman yun diba madami namang varieties ng tomato lalo na diyan sa states. i know you will be great. i’m not sure if it’s mustard. i think mustard comes from a tree.

    mitsuru,
    oh looks who’s back! LOL wala bang pechay diyan? oh well that figures kung bakit hindi ko maisip ang english ng pechay.

    mama jasmin,
    siguro nga po mustard greens. yung mustard na yellow di po ba sa tree galing yun? nako oo nga po next year! sana buo pa ang veggie patch by then LOL. today we have bagoong, but not just ordinary bagoong but with lots of sili! more yum!

  6. Wow, sarap ng gulay, freskong-fresko. You don’t know what you ARE missing by not eating veggies. I think mustasa, is mustard greens in English and I love it in any sinigang (meat or fish). I’d like to see that garden when we come home next December, God-willing.Your Kuya Allan will love the okra so get the bagoong ready.Yummmmmmmmy

  7. I always wanted to have a vegetable garden but the only thing I can raise successfully is tomato. My wife said to give up the idea because I do not have a green thumb LOL. Btw, mustasa is mustard in English di ba?

  8. schucks!
