A monster on the balcony?

Well, I don't know what to say. This one just keeps on growing and growing. I think it's well over three metres now.

I forgot the most important info. It's my basella alba, or malabar spinach.

I think it's a plant with a purpose. Or ambition and vision. It's probably trying to get up to the neighbor above us. But what it's really trying to accomplish - I don't know yet. Have a look at it. It goes both to the left and right along the railing.

In other words. We still haven't eaten it. And the question is still if we dare :-)


  1. Ah, I forgot the most important info :-)

    It's malabar spinach, also called basella alba.
