Gardening project

One of my “ambitious” goals this summer is to be able to start gardening. Yes, I got inspired by Marce Peh’s hobby and now I want to start cultivating my own little vegetable garden, too. Oh boy, I can’t wait to have my own source of fresh veggies after a few months.

Gardening will not only keep me busy, but healthy as well. I’ll get to burn lots of calories from gardening. They say calories lost are equal to the calories burn from walking or jogging. Gardening, based on what I read, also helps individuals with high blood pressure and diabetes problem. Growing and cultivating plants reduce stress levels and make a person “happy”.

Garden makeover

I really love to have a neat garden to make our simple home look nice. Aside from beautifying the home there are also benefits to growing plants. Plants soothe the tired eyes and make you feel happy especially if you have flowering plants. Plants purify the air we breathe as they trap various toxins in the air. Given these benefits makes me want to pursue my dream garden even more. I want to grow different flowering plants including rose and orchids. Our plants at home need a terrible make-over. These plants are originally planted in milk cans and now the cans have deteriorated and need a replacement. I should have included plants in my Christmas wish list then. I’ve checked ProPlants plant gifts for Moms! Not done reading the list yet, but I’ve picked a couple of plants that I want to see in my future garden makeover.
