In time to come, I hope to reach 80% self-sufficiency in vegetables and then buy the rest from the pesticide free hydroponic farm 5 minutes away - Oh Farm at Bah Soon Pah Rd (just across the road from Sembawang Air Base). Going organic greatly reduces my exposure to xeno-oestrogens (present in pesticides and growth hormones). Oestrogen encourages the body to lay on the fat and hold on to it. It also contributes to heavy menstrual bleeding and in the long term, too much exposure to oestrogen can lead to cancer.
The leaves of this whatchamacallit serves up a nice garlic stir fry. The neighbour
gave me permission to cut those branches that grow over the fence.
Xiao bai cai.
Earthworms. I feed them vegetable scraps which they convert into worm poop
and worm pee for use as fertiliser.
