Ready for Picking

Poppo Olag’s vegetable garden is now ready for harvest. There are more than enough for them so he’s more than willing to share the veggies to anyone who wants a taste of Filipino vegetables grown on American soil. Poppo Olaq lives in Maryland near the Washington DC area. In the picture is Poppo Olag with his kidya (kalamansi) plant.
