Urban Gardening

Living in an urban or suburban area will give you a limitation in gardening. But since gardening is one of my hobbies, this will not stop me from growing plants at home. I tried growing dragon fruits in pots and even asked Papa to make a small plant box in front of our home.

Yesterday, after attending the Palm Sunday Mass, Mommy and I went to buy some stuff to start gardening again. She wanted to start growing succulents and I wanted to grow herbs and veggies. I even plan to make a small garden on our roof top and grow veggies like sitaw, talong, sili, and even lettuce.

I bought some plastic pots that can be hung, filled with garden soil and planted some seeds. But you can also try recycling PET bottles for your urban gardening.

I planted tomatoes, lettuce, and spring onions.

If you wanted to do the same, there are many seeds sold in the market but you can also have your own by saving the seeds from the vegetables you used at home like tomatoes, bell pepper, and even squash and cucumber.

Also, Mommy had her first succulent. She will bring small pots and will ask my Tita to have some of her collections in Nueva Ecija this vacation.

I will make an update on this post.
