Planting, Eating and Compose Organic

in ASEAN Hive2 months ago

Eating organics used to be a leisure thing for many of us, but if we put a little extra effort, for an Asian family at the equator environment with some sunlight, it is not impossible.

Especially when you have elderly at home that needs this sort of chemical free greens just to keep themselves healthy.


Since last year I have been experimenting whether I could harvest some young shoots of spinach (that is potent of cancer fighting antioxidants) for now finally now declared cancer free dad; and with my mom's constant need of nourishing food, this cannot be avoided.

Nowadays, most of my food grown at home are actually edible; from chilies to salad greens; even moringa plant, mints and now testing on other types of vegetables. Anything that can be consumed now has a higher priority in my garden.

Oh and there's a fun fact:

Did you know, that roses are edible? Especially the small ones?

And another bigger fact is that Roses CAN HELP YOU TO LOSE WEIGHT TOO?

Now that's a really good reason to plant roses in your back yard right?

Not to mention it is yummy and tender.

Wait... But I don't have "green fingers"!

That too was once a common sentence I use whenever people talk about gardening. It was always my dad's thing. I could never able to get something growing well.

But there's one Word of God that caught my eye, that I held dear for all context, including gardening:

I planted the seed ... watered it, but God has been making it grow.
1 Corinthians 3:6

Even in original context it was for another case, I think it applies the same with gardening. Most importantly it is to ask the LORD to bless what we do and give it to Him, and let HIM do the rest.


And it seems scientifically, when you are less stress when you deal with the plants, you will see the growth that flows throw.

Positive energy? Regulating energy? Maybe... but for me, I'd just ask God to bless all the things (alive) I touch. 😆

How about you?

Would going out of the way and making organic (pesticide free) a choice for you and your family?

Would love to hear your comments and let's share some ideas...

Because compose is one of the last hurdles! I just don't seemed to be able to get it right and it is too acidic for the soil. Any ideas?

Until then

We have been growing some veggies in our balcony
Could be better but we are happy we started it
We even have a banana tree - fingers crossed ;D

Yes, roses have some health benefits and it is believed good for the baby, so pregnant Indian women would put some petals into their milk.

Your plating looks yummy!!

Wow banana tree! Hebat la you!
Then again I think your balcony is way bigger than mine. My balcony is too tiny so whatever I can do to safe space too I will try my best.
HOWEVER
That being said I have 2 tiny papaya tree growing and white dragon fruit seedlings sprouting. Time to find a way for them to grow

Apparently, the banana tree will grow to about 3 feet tall, so I am guessing as tiny as your papaya tree :D

Bravo to you! Everything looks so fresh! :)

Thank you! I am actually trying to test if limited light with UV will help limited light plants to grow as well

I recently tried growing avocado from seed - it's gonna take ages, I know, lol - just an experiment! They're growing very nicely, I'm surprised. One has huge healthy leaves! And just in water for now... I'm constantly moving them to where the sun shines - no balcony but I get limited sunshine at certain times of day. Will soon move them somewhere within my apartment compound.... 🤞 Who knows - in ten years and beyond, others might be enjoying avocadoes from them! Lol... All the best to your plants! 😊

Thank you for your support. If you haven't heard of VAULT, time to explore. It might be our next payout scheme which I'm looking forward to work with.
