A Tour of CETDEM's Organic Garden

Here's the garden. Inter-cropping, where various plants are planted together in the same vegetable bed, is practised here due to limitation of space. Organic farming method is used here. Produces from this farm is sold to generate fund for the centre.

I love the organic farm!! By the way, is the sweet leaf bush stevia?

Hi Blur Ting, the sweet leaf bush (Sayur Manis) is the vegie that we add to our Pan Meen Noodle. II am not certain if the same vegie is added to the Pan Meen Noodle sold in Singapore. Sometimes we cook it in soup with an egg added.

Hi JC,
Referring to the "Sayur Manis" picture, do you think it is a bit sickly...the many white spots ?
The "Wild Gensing" or the "Japanese Ginseng" this is edible right ?
Thanks

Hi GP, the sayur manis was indeed sickly looking.

As for the Wild Ginseng, it is edible. I was told it can be stir-fried and it has a gluey texture. I have some growing in my garden but I don't feel like eating it. Just like the little flowers on the plant.
