Now, I am blessed to have a yard large enough for me to enjoy daily gardening. It such a blessing to do a bit of farming activities while living in a big city.
|I was pruning our mango tree to let more sunshine on the corner where we wanted our butterfly garden to be.|
For some time, I've busied myself tending the front yard more than the back where I used to have my vegetable garden. Recently, I'm reminded that I should care for both. It also spoke of my heart's journey where I put more effort on taking care of what is seen than the inner self. So, as I'm back tending my backyard, I am also looking into my heart. How is the plight of my heart?
My backyard is prone to flooding during heavy rain so I decided to do pot-gardening. My heart is prone to depression when heavily pressured and stressed so I'm taking things bit by bit, one day at a time. As I said in my garden blog, when I work in my garden, I'm also gardening in my heart. I plant seeds of faith. Uproot weeds of doubts.
This time I planted more herbs and spices. I have different kinds of basil and chilies, pandan, lemon grass, rosemary, lime, malunggay, bell pepper, turmeric, and spring onions. The banana tree is also bearing fruit and so is the rose apple.
Gardening is a hard work. Although I enjoy doing it but I admit that sometimes I wish I live back in those high rise apartments so I only have potted plants to care for.
|For sure, the spaghetti for our lunch today tasted better with fresh basil from our garden.|
But then,every time I put on the table food fresh from my garden, my being a farm girl at heart is again revived.
