Yey! It’s my first time to ever plant a ginger and I’m very happy with the outcome. I just threw away a part of the ginger used for cooking and after a while I saw the shoots coming out so I transplanted it in a squared-elevated dirt from my vermi-compost.
It’s basically a no-need-to-take-care plant cause I just mostly check it during the weekends. As every new leaves form, a new “ginger meat” is forming as its root.
I could have waited longer for bigger ginger and more harvest but I was too excited to see what’s underneath and besides I will be cooking my husband’s favorite “tinola”, so I needed some. So, I pulled it off.
I left some for re-planting and added the most to my dish. And how does organic ginger taste? It’s sweeter and tastier.
I’m planning to try planting as many as I can this year. Unsuccessful or not. 23rd day of the 365 blank page filled.
‘Til next my loves!
