Gardening: Little Greenhouse

Few days ago I started gave myself time for sow new seeds.

By third day, I decided I needed to do a small greenhouse. But I can’t do something fancy, but poped up in my mind.. “why not recycle?”

Yes, I decided to set my old cat cage, considered as 2 tiers as my small greenhouse. And so, I did recycled few plastic bottles and cups for my new seeds.

These was while I’m working on them. I set a cover, and tide on top of the cage. Then layered those ladders. There, where I placed all new seeds. I even used old plastic bowls. I realised too I made mistakes while doing the process, but as many self-taught gardeners, learning about it all from the process and experience are the best..

And yes, for the onions, I usually do that. It’s just where I wanted it grow its leaves, for cooking. So I hope they all sprout well..

So for now, I just need to finish the fence project, which almost almost done by now. Seriously can’t wait to set two doors, with the help from my dad – credit to him!. Once done, I’ll be moving a lotsss of garden stuff of mine, such as pots and recycle plastic bottles and cups, and bowls. Garden settings like, chairs, maybe, with table soon. Need some decorations for my garden.. just can’t wait..!

Update again soon. Erghh can’t wait but have too.


Gardening: Fences

Last week was, hectic…

So just this week, considered half of this week I can get a chance to do my stuff, and blog..

Couple days ago, I back on my garden plan and landscape.

So far, to me, just good as want and hope for.

I got my hand bruised, after long time not holding an axe, which only metal tool to hit L metals for fence. Those L metals are cut by my dad, credited to him, for helping me in any project. And so, I decided to reuse all netting for fences here.. plus, it all rust resistance, which expensive these days, so reuse from old project, which some not even finished….

And as for yesterday, me in my boots, old already and need a new one but couldn’t afford it yet… But, as can be seen, my fence project really as I want.

Although I need to fix all before I could start for two garden doors… Seriously, I just hope that I can make the area, the space looks good as I want it to be.. Like, for real this time. Because I don’t want to repeat same mistake that I’ve done since I started gardening like seriously in 2020…

Not choose area and space, to not thinking long enough to set and make fences like properly, and too not choose where to set my greenhouse, space for sow new seeds.. But this time, I said, “I give it a go, here!”.

So yea… So far, this is only..

And I hope I can finish it..

Gardening: March’s Things

I try my best to get active in here. By that I just need to cut short my writing part.

So here’s for my gardening stuff, so far..

These photos I took within this week.

From my new seeds of Spinach and Cosmos err which in my language is Ulam Raja. It took some time to sprout from my observation. For Spinach, it all from old seeds, from old batch, and from last year.. Few of them, did sprout out, some just, so far.. Not really. But I let it stay. See if it all sprout a bit late than usual..

But kind of worry for Spinach, it all might be nothing but weeds…

And as for couple of days now, I did it, set up my new perimeter on my new area. To which I plan to do frontyard garden like. I will plant few important and usually eat by my parents and siblings, more for my parents and myself as green leaf vegetables are green in short time only. So it is better to me, for me to plant few kinds only.. Plus the area just nice to include flower kinds together.

I hope this time I can make it. It’s been a long time since last one actually…. And I can’t wait for the time where my mom also can enjoy the garden…. The area with pavers, like a round pathway, just with edges. It was an outdoor kitchen things, wet one.. But abandoned since, but more like not function as it was before to which I decided to go with it, as my garden…. Plus it’s part where me and family cross for walk like that….

So yes. My daily life. Which I want to put more effort into it too…. And will try to post more!

Gardening: New, Simply Near Area

Hiiii to new followers in here! Nice to meet you guys, from anywhere you’re from!

So, remember I set my garden area to be? Yea, but I can’t work on there… I feel bad actually, but the reason is that I realised I can’t even be there even if I wanted to, as it’s at edge of where our main house located. So… I feel like I have to pass on that one…. But, I decided to go with medium space? Considering as for garden?

It’s our pavers garden, to which, actually no garden – because there was no flowers before, like years since my mom plan and set for it when we had two gardeners back then… No exact ‘garden’… So in pandemic era that I started plants Spider Lilies, to which they’re all grow so well…. And now, I mean, few weeks back I decided to set it as frontyard garden. I can’t wait, but already started, 2 days already.

You see hmm…. This mess, since last year I maintain the area…. All down when I caught covid last year, and as the result, true that I’m kind of worry or scared to do my outdoor work since. It was half year that I’m not doing my outdoor work, like every single day I do, before covid…… And, early this year, I realised, I gained so much that I started to feel like…. Pressure….? I don’t like it… With stuff at home, as I’m considering full time artist, which yes, I do illustrations of details in black and white, I just can’t get time to exercise, but rather than nothing, I choose to go with gardening or landscaping, which I feel relieved every time… Feel great.

So far I managed to hoe on compose on surface area, which is pavers. It’s like a pathway of pavers. Next step will be set up the fences, yesss I’m so into it. To which I plan for bamboo fence.. Since, yea, our home ground full of it! I’ll be going to chop few of it of how many that I need, for fences.

Once done, I’ll be need help from my dad to set 2 garden grille, door…? Which will be made out of bamboo. And ladt step, I’ll be ready the soils. For now, I still growing veggie on my bins. For now, just Spinach.. That’s it…. As we still receive rain time to time.

Photos are from first day for this small project. I choose the area since its the nearest to our main building of our house. Plus, it’s flat compared to the area I took last year…. 2 years, ago..? I feel like it..? It’s alright, whatever, but maybe I might use it the future? Who knows right….?

For now, this is the area. Just nice, big enough for me to plant few kinds.

Ok. Need a sleep, I have things to settle. Take care!

Artwork: Random Size Experiment

Around near end 2021, I decided to go with small sizes, which was my experiment, to draw or illustrate out of usually I do… Which my trademark character, Knight Head.

My Knight Head is full body, usually. But I just kept having these images came to me, so I feel like I couldn’t wait anymore, I need to put it all out. So, here’s the illustrations.

TA DAaaaaa

Yes. My Knight Head in flowers and abandoned theme. These all small sizes, and open for sale. If interest, kindly DM me or any questions, just comment below. I prefer to contact me on my Instagram account. In here, I share many stuff, as myself with my interests and my artworks.

True is, I was worry… A lot, in share my artwork in some social media platforms, but, I just said to myself… “Why not? Let’s try as much as I can!?”. Soooo… I’m on it.

Anyway, back to the topic… These, was when I’m at my low, my down, for well.. Personally private. But my feelings when started these, I was like, try to climb back out from whatever that cause me to be… Flowers, I love flowers. We love flowers… And, abandoned… With all, it’s about being left, and at the same time to leave behind what was once a beautiful memories, or moment that you/we have had we something or someone or, some people…

Yes, I’m a black and white artist, using pen on paper, and my Knight Head is to symbolise human, and I go with my detail and patterns style – open to elements of architecture, landscape, and fantasy.

Please….. don’t copy my works, without permission and such.. For one piece of my illustration, consume time, some just almost a month to finish it. Some take months.. So, please do, kindly DM me on my Instagram account for more. Or, check out links on page, which I already set it.

Thank you!

Gardening: So Far!

Hey it’s midnight and I’m update stuff, plus still thinking specific and particularly for what exactly for a planner that I want to write as someone gave me last year.

That one I won’t put in here. That just for my personal one… Anyway, update on my dad’s project.

We, as me and my dad, on his project. As for yesterday, we did it so much although the progress can say slow, well… It’s just 2 of us. But we managed to cleared grass and already planning for where-to-where part to go with pavers soon. And sad thing is, yea, we decided to chopped off our long time 2 in 1 citrus tree, a unique one… 2 types of limes from 1 root… But it’s part of the will be pavers area so, I did the chopping part…. Thank you tree..

But as there’s not enough budget for pavers which costy a bit and a bit more costy than the last time I bought, which was at the beginning of the pandemic… So.. Definitely, the price different now. So.. I can only wait for my dad’s green light.

While doing all that, I chooses to picked all the wild white flowers that blooming like crazy this time. I set 2 bouquet of it…. And yes, these are for ones that gave me love and memories.. I don’t think I’m gonna open about it, so yea, it’s my thing, that I usually do when the flowers blooms. I didn’t get the chance to do so last year as there was more rain, until recently there’s more sunny….. So the flowers’ here, I was just “yes, I must pick it”. For me maybe tomorrow or whenever I can get to.

I only open on my IG, but story only. I hardly to open when it one that give me a big impact in my life, as person stretch to my personal and opinions and feeling and so so on…. In any aspects, I realised that, I have part that I couldn’t put if it gives me impact on specific parts of myself… I believe, we all have it, isn’t it..?

It’s, memorable things kind of.

Gardening: White Wild Flowers

Rain back again, 3 days already. No outdoor activities hmm but sunny days one week plus, there’s my favourite wild flowers blooming.

These wild flowers… My favourite whenever its blooming around our home ground. Since I don’t know to be exact the actual name, I simply call them “white wild flowers”. And every time its blooming, I picked up as a bouquet of it, one bouquet for myself or any area in our home, another for my pets.

I should snap some close ones. Which I will. But I’m worry I couldn’t as I have an family things for few days, with raining, uhmm worry it all gone and I have to wait for sunny days after rainy season… Hopefully there’s sunny, at least I can continue my dad’s project… It’s important for us actually.

I need to prepare for my stay at hospital this evening, so yea……. I should get ready, in few minutes.

So see you soon.

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!

Gardening: New Peat Moss, New Seed In Family

Last week I bought new peat moss, and new seed!

So here we go.


2 bags only…. As price increase, I decided to be on budget everytime.

These 2 bags of peat moss are imported from Euro, as in description at the packing.

And new seed!

Cosmos Mix, for this one? As I learned, and the reason I bought this seed it’s because for the leaves. In here, our ulam, which raw and various of leaves to eat with rice and our kind of dipping sauce, we called sambal or belacan. Of course both of these and ulam leaves are eat together. We will pick and clean them, and ready to eat. Can check my post which I wrote about ulam.

So I still not sow it. But I will.

Recent weather not really sunny. So I think I might wait just a little bit longer, when sunlight is more than usual.

As for now, I need to focus on my body and health, after my Covid last time.

Stay safe everyone.

Gardening: Planting Stuff

2, 3 days ago I went to supermarket. I think it was great since I bought peat moss!

But I just love checking the section area, here’s some.

Went with my parents, we did shopping for groceries mainly, and usually. The reason we ended up at supermarket was I had to send my artwork for framing, which I’ll be sharing soon myself as an artist and artworks.

So, here’s more from the section.

I think the section was upgraded?

Because to me it looks like it.

Pretty isn’t it? I just forgot to snapped few more, specially on pots and soil/compose parts. I’ll share soon my peat moss and additional seed to my seeds collection!

The evening twilight was beautiful too. Here’s.

That’s the bonus for this entry.

So stay safe people. It’s beautiful right..
