Gardening for me is a way to relax, connect with the soil. Each morning when I wake up and see my plants, I get this fresh energy, hope and satisfaction that ensures the rest of the day is positive.
When I’m away on holidays, I miss them terribly so much so that when I reach home, the first thing I do is rush to see them, check if they are ok. It’s a part of me, yes, even though I have a very small area with plants, I am content with having them around & enjoy nurturing them. They are now a part of me.
When you learn to grow your own produce, it teaches you a lot about life:-
First attempts may not always be successful.
If your first attempt is successful, don’t be proud, learn to respect it & nurture it.
If you are unsuccessful, don’t lose hope, get up & do it once again.
The results don’t matter, sow the seeds, water it daily, one day, you will see tiny sprouts!
The art of appreciating little things that happen around us is what matters. Don’t focus on the bigger picture, just enjoy what you have, the PRESENT!
I hope you appreciate this space, a hobby that I have been enjoying since the last 6 years. Hopefully some day I fulfill my dream of owning an organic farm somewhere near Mumbai where I can grow organic produce and cook with the freshest ingredients!! Well, Someday!!
Until then, Be Responsible, Do your bit for the Environment!
