My Triplets

One of my hobbies is gardening. Some might think it's pretty boring, but I think it's such a therapy. As I was dealing with some internal issues last year, I started to divert my mind and push my attention towards something else, rather, a new hobby. So I started to look deep inside and ask, what do I really like to do? Then a few passions came up, among them are sewing, cooking, jungle tracking and of course gardening. Many people in their mid-20's would spend time shopping, hanging out, watching movies, karaoke and stuff like that. Not for me=) 

I started planting, mostly veggies at the small land in the backyard. Ladies fingers, green beans, ginger, corn and more. 

To my surprise one day, my dad told me that I have triplets! The corns that I planted seems to be growing 3 corns in what's supposed to be 1 corn part. See, one corn plant can only produce 2 corns max. But this particular corn plant divided a single corn into three baby corns.
can you see the three corns?

3 corns..supposed to be only 1


This is the normal corn plant
So as you can see, the normal corn plant only produces 2 corns.

As for the taste, it was very sweet! Such an amazing feeling when you can eat what you've sewn. Even more satisfying when you family gets to eat them too.

p/s: Although the corn was sweet, they were a bit weird. Hehehehe..org kata, gigi jarang la..isi sikit2..My mum said, corns are supposed to be planted in big volumes, then the yellow part (what's it called?) will grow nicely. Mine's just 2 plans so the process of male pollen and female pollen could not happen nicely. She's a science teacher..paham2 la..love u mum!
