My Little Farm

23 Nov

 

Just because you don’t have a huge garden space or live in a city, it doesn’t mean you cannot grow healthy produce for your use. The initial idea started from the nursery owner that was kind enough to explain to us why the 4 pots of flowers he sold us two months ago were dying. He taught us how to prune it and give it more organic fertilizer, limit water and more sun rays. And then he went on talking about plants and flowers. That is the good thing about surrounding yourself with passionate people 🙂

We ended up leaving the nursery with lots of gadgets and renew passion of growing vegetable in our own garden. I use organic potting soil and organic fertilizer mix because studies have shown that there are many benefits to growing organically, including better taste and a higher percentage of antioxidents. We spent the entire evening mixing soil and planting our little garden.

Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.~Veronica A. Shoffstall

We now have lemongrass, chili, ginger, curry leaves, pandan and Roselle!! I shared this with my mother during dinner and she doubted that very much “You don’t even drink sufficient water everyday, I am really worried about your garden”

(It’s ok, it’s the raining season now :D)

I look at my little garden and hopefully by spring, my gardening effort will be blooming 🙂

    Hey lil’ Farmer.
    Never heard of pandan…sounds interesting though. Your mom’s concern about your garden sounds like what my mom would say! Haha….
    On another subject, just want to let you know about the Liebster Award you received so go on and check it out over at my place.
    Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving!

      THANKS!!! I felt so honored to be on your list 🙂

      Anyway, pandan is a kind of leaf that is widely used in south east asian cooking. It’s well known for it’s subtle fragrance. You can easily find it in any Thai, Malaysian and Indonesian cuisines.

    I would love to have a little garden, but I can’t even manage flowers, haha. How difficult is it to manage a garden and how long have you been doing it now?

      It’s raining season now in Malaysia. So all the plants are doing alright out there. I feel great when I saw little flowers growing from my initially dying pot this morning. Then I realize, growing something really nurture your own soul too!
