Today's harvest

Pak choy (奶油白菜)



Do you use any cleanser on your harvest?

These veggies may look good to you but the thousands of don't-know-whose-eggs at the back of the leaves sent a cold shiver down my spine... I washed+brushed them with cleanser x5 pails of water (-_-)!! And still i don't feel like eating them...

I have to laugh because they do look wonderfully healthy but once I see something yukky, I have a hard time getting past remembering that.

Oh dear! The eggs were on some of the leaves only, right? I would normally just get rid of those infected leaves and consume the rest. I don't use chemical for my own harvest. Sometimes I use them for things like grapes which are purchased. They are probably coated with insecticide. Your own harvest should be very nutritious so please refrain from getting rid of the nutrition.

Dear Milka, Those Pak Choy are beauties and very healthy. Its normal with the eggs, mine also a lot. Just wash them away with water. If you buy organically grown it is the same but they have wash it for you.

Haha Diana, thanks for the answer!! And thanks for telling me the truth abt organic veggies, haha. But i'd already given away to the one who doesn't mind the eggs.

Milka, you should be very happy that your vege shows signs of not having any chemicals.. organically grown vegetables are like that.. you just need to give your vege a good washing under a running tap. Do not soak your vegetables with lots of water as it will deplete the nutrient in them.

These eggs and all on your vege will fall off easily from washing and if not, a thorough cooking of boiling or frying will kill anything.. including human. So have no fear..
