AND THE ANSWER IS....

First of all, a big thank you to those who left me a comment in my previous post "Take a Guess". I had fun reading the answers especially WorldWindows who guessed it was pinenut tree!

I will now reveal the answer...ready??? Drums rolling.......and the answer is..... ASPARAGUS!! There are a few who guessed correctly, clap clap clap! It doesn't look anything like asparagus isn't it? I am seriously doubting if they have mixed up the seedlings as it does look like herbs. Anyway, I do hope my baby asparagus will grow up well and hopefully, I can share with you on how I am going to cook it!

Asparagus? I would have thought it's some kind of herbs!

This is what wild asparagus looks like so I knew what this was. :) You must take step-by-step photos so I can see how it becomes the asparagus we see in stores.

hongyi said...

i nvr thought it'd be asparagus - was arguing with mum abt it - thought it was dill or fennel!

Terri @ A Daily Obsession said...

knew it was asparagus bc it used to be widely grown at kundasang (mt kinabalu) in the 80s. sorry but i think u'll get chopsticks-thin asparagus bc the plant needs cold weather to sprout fat stems.

sc said...

UnkaLeong said...

Wah sure boh? Erm...fry with belachan? :)~~~

Precious Pea said...

tigerfish: I would have guessed dill too!

wandering chopsticks: I sure will! Hopefully it will grow well cos it's so tiny and fragile now.

denise: Hehe..thanks! But I guess I shouldn't be too happy till i harvest it.

christine: I also don't know why the tip looks so hairy.

mimid3vils: That is why i put it up cos am sure many wouldn't have guess it look like this during its infancy.

hongyi: Haha..your mum expert in gardening so I guess you can't beat her. So back to KK oledi, enjoying yourself?

terri: Should i put fertilizer at this stage or to wait? No wonder the asparagus in Aust so fat and those locally grown look so malnourish.

ling239: Hahaha..pine trees! Need 2 chipmunks to go with that!

sc: Knowledgable hor?

unka: I scare tak cukup to fry. Need to buy some outside to add in. I think i will wrap with bacon to grill instead. Slurps.

noobcook said...

Precious Pea said...

noobcook: Keeping my fingers crossed.

jam said...

It is asparagus indeed. I also grow a few in my backyard. And had harvested for nearly a year now!

Precious Pea said...

Jam: Cool!!! Do you pull the whole thing out when you harvest them? Or do i just cut it and leave an inch? Will it regrow?
