Update on my garden (Episode 1)

I'm hopeful just like this son by Alanis Morrisette.

I'm broke but I'm happy
I'm poor but I'm kind
I'm short but I'm healthy
I'm high but I'm grounded
I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby
What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be fine fine fine
'cause I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five

The rain came everyday and it drown most of my plants.
I was upset of course but then I thought "plants only mah. Not like its the end of the world and I still have seeds. Start all over again lah!" although many died, 2 managed to survive.

My loyal cabbage .

My Radish Icicle.

My cherry tomato plants which I think is stunted but then I just leave them there.

And these are tomatoes as well. But I have no idea how it went or grow from there. I thought the soil was infested with bug so I throw them far far away from my veg patch. And today I found out that they are tomatoes. Weird or not? The one I really looked after is not growing much. And the one exposed to rain and sun with no proper care is growing very well. *lol*

They say the rain will stop in Jan ( angin monsoon barat daya comes in sept-dec. Luckily I didn't give everything back to my form 3 geography teacher), so I'm starting to germinate seeds now.
Ah such a joy watching the seeds growing leaves and turning into seedlings.
These are the corn seeds I got from MARDI counter during the MAHA exhibition. That is 3 days after being germinated. So cool. It's way taller now.
And these are my new seedlings.
