Singapore Food Plot
I hardly see edibles (aside from pandan) in Singapore. It's kind of strange, with even a larger void than urban Metro Manila. Of course, I can't claim to have seen the whole city-state, I do wish people here planted more. The greens beautify the city but could be multi-multi-purpose, providing beauty and oxygen and coolth and food. That being said, this little patch in Geylang gives me feelings of fuzziness everytime I pass by.
In Manila, most such gardens are tended by migrants. Are these grown by the Tamil immigrant workers who live in the area? Probably, given the inhabitant plants: papaya, squash, lime, curry tree, pandan, okra, pomegranate.
