Gardening: Kangkung Regrowth

It’s been a long time for my garden things, it’s because lately my area receives rain more than usual.

As the result, with after caught Covid on June, I’ve been slow down with my outdoor activities. Sometimes, even cooking and drawing I don’t feel my usual energy that I have before Covid… It’s, frustrating..

Buy around 1 to 2 weeks ago, I had planned in mind, which the only that easy and raining season now, what I can grow just kangkung, or Water Spinach. So that when I bought 2 ties of it, and came home with another 1 tie, which my parents bought. I just love it.

Yea… I just had to clear up all the bushes and wild plants, again, the other day..

Luckily, the bed and the woods frame still intact. This bed is the best one, in my garden area. It was burned as I and my father did clear things up end last year. Cut out of branches and sticks, like that.

And as you can see, new leaves regrowth. I plant kangkung from its roots. But make sure its steam available for the regrowth part.

Yes, like this. And where’s the leaves?

Top steam and leaves, I cooked. Kangkung Belacan, that’s in my language. That was my plate that day.

But let’s see upclose? For the regrowth one?

I’m soooo happy to see it all growing.

Since I did on pots. The result not same as on soil like this. Yes, compose and fertiliser, that part a bit tough, as soil that I set on pots doesn’t turn out like when I plant on soil. Easy say, I prefer on soil directly method, rather than on pots, as I with my artwork, now accessory business, cooking, and other things personally, it’s take time and energy, so, on direct soil method save my time in daily like a LOT. Yes, I still have to put fertiliser and compose for all kangkung to grow, but at least I just can – removing weeds, put fertiliser or compose, and water them all, and done. I don’t need to go all around like I did with pots.

Plus, kangkung need more water, with the season, it can survive well, from my observation so far since I started in 2020.

So let’s see how it all gonna be!


Accessory: Handmade By Me

A quick one.

As artist myself, and before decided to go on as full time illustration artist, there was something else I did. It was after my secondary school era, around 2010, if I’m not mistaken, I was a crafter.

Yes. You read that. I made accessories. Handmade mostly, with few ready made, that I bought in wholesale. As I, still young, tried to involved in business, I failed… Why I said so? I was not confident in doing what I do at the time. I don’t feel good about my accessories, which, well, if I look back uhmm my design sucks.. But, since I stopped, that’s when I decided to off and closed, and even put away all my crafting materials for a long time.. That era there was just Facebook, and I don’t feel my handmade will ever go forward..

Until recently, around August this year, yes, after 11, 12 years since I stopped. I decided to get back on my old accessory business.

I rename it, MICOLLI MADE. The name are, from my beloved pets. And I decided to open only on Instagram, for the time being, as I can’t afford to even have an online shop. As when the name growth, I will open an online shop for it, so easy for any of you, who love handmade accessory just have easy access to purchase the product.

So…. Here’s the Instagram account @/micollimade.

Feel free, to follow and check them out.

And as the section already open, I will update about MICOLLI MADE under the section, and anything that have to do with accessory..! Even my personal accessory, I guess? Yes. I’m an accessory lover. An artist, and before an artist, I’m a crafter…

I think.. It’s just me, it’s just in me, it’s just myself. Just I stop because I’m not confident…. I was young, still exploring I guess? And now, as I decided to love myself since last year, I learned a lot, still learning to love myself and that’s why and now I feel much comfortable to open back my accessory business, and, if I’m not a full time illustration artist anymore, I maybe more than just an illustration artist. A crafter? A jewellery maker, in the future maybe? A writer…?

I guess art things, is just me.. Part of me I guess..

Alright! Do follow if you interested!
