Ampalaya (bitter gourd)
And the local orange (dalanghita)
Except for the orange, the kids proudly told me that they helped plant the first three! And these were planted in an empty lot inside a private village in the city! I am truly amazed. What a healthy environment for city kids to grow up in. And because it is a Monday, I share all of these with Macro Monday, Mellow Yellow, The Creative Exchange and Happy Monday which is looking for something "black and white" which were our perfect walking companions, Maxi and Snowball, who both love 'parking' at the peanut grass. Don't worry because the village security people saw and allowed it. Have a happy week!
