Springtime in Summer

so, finally got it started. gardening is not that hard after all. just a few plowing and sowing and watering, you'll immediately see the fruits of your labor. i particularly got excited when the first shoot appeared. afterwhich, the leaves shed the testa (seedcoat). oh yes, i've been doing a lot of research about plants lately. and i think i might have rubbed some greenthumb dust on my sister because she also bought herb seedlings last weekend. i also started documenting the flowering plants around our yard. i might put plastic name tags on them for identification just in case my garden starts to turn into a jungle. my mom also instructed me to demolish the abandoned sari-sari store in our front yard (reminiscent of her old entrepreneurial days). so that would mean more planting area for me.

if you want to start your own garden patch, here's what you will need:

1 - cocopeat, good soil substitute for growing seeds; it stays moist/wet even if you forgot to water the plants for a day.

2 - seedlings, make sure they grow in tropical countries

3 - transplanter

4 - trowel, no not the type that you use for palitada

5 - cultivator or claw or weeder, this one looks like a small rake

6 - apron and gloves, very advantageous if you're dovetailing

7 - water sprayer or hose to water plants

8 - pots, available in plastic, clay and biodegradable material.

... these materials are not that expensive. Ace Hardware is a very good shop to look for these (hehehe... mag-advertise daw ba!). i hope you'll start your own garden this summer. let's save the ozone layer! nyehehehe! ayos!
