In the past few years I developed an interest for gardening. Despite the allergies, in the past couple weeks I tried to spend some time with my garden. This involves germinating the seeds, preparing the soil / pots, allocating a sunny area to keep the plants and protecting the plants from bugs / squirrels / rabbits or other pests that could kill the plants.
I find it to be a relaxing project majority of the times. When the plants survive it is a good feeling and when it doesn’t, it’s a learn in progress feeling (frustration). I was not so successful in the past 2 years due to inexperience and various reasons.
This year I planted strawberries in a bag, marigold, zinnia, green pepper, cilantro and tomatoes. Wish me luck for this year’s harvest.
