Pocket Vegetable Garden

Hubby is so excited about growing a mini vegetable garden. He started with the sili labuyo plant (chili pepper) which I bought from Halamanan sa Pasig last month. I also purchased from them three Bacularis plants which are known for their air-purifying quality.

He got inspired by the siling labuyo plant that he decided to also plant tomato seeds, spring onion stalk, more sili seeds, and later kinchay or Chinese celery.

Update: We have already picked at least eight ripened chilis. Their so small but spicy.

We’ve got tomatoes growing right here. I’m excited about this project. We’ve been planning to have our vegetable garden for so long and it is slowly being realized this year.

Update: The young onion (upper right corner) and the celery (lower right side) died. The tomatoes grew a bit.

Planting is one of the small things that made hubby and me happy these days. It’s something that eases off our stress and worries from day-to-day activities. We are not getting any younger and simple activity like this is beneficial to both our mental and emotional health

My certified plantito hubby. 😀 This batch (of the plant) will serve as a fence right outside our window to secure it from irresponsible neighbors who leave their garbage and whatnot on the sidewalk.

Indoor plants make a good gift

Browsing through previous blog posts I found this “lucky bamboo” pic. We bought the plant as gift to hubby.

If you are still thinking of what to give those in your Christmas list, indoor plants are a good gift idea this season. Indoor plants are not expensive and give positive energy to anyone exposed to them.

And if you happen to grow indoor plants, selling them can be a good source of earning extra this Christmas.

Green indoor plants give calming or soothing effect. They also improve the air we breathe at home and the workplace as they absorb harmful gases present in the air.

Environment Friendly Carpet Cleaning

Having a carpet at home can have a lot of advantages. It can make your home look classy and it will also be safer for families with children. The problem with having carpets though is that there can be some disadvantages as well. If you have pets, you know how hard it is to remove all of the fur that is left behind. Taking dirt and other materials that might ruin the carpet will be hard to remove if it would not be done professionally.

There are a lot of companies now that are offering carpet cleaning as well as other home cleaning services. These companies might be effective in what they do but are they concerned about the environment? Over the past years, people have used different materials that have contributed to the thinning of the ozone layer and worsening of the condition of the environment. Cleaning materials might contain hazardous ingredients that will leave residue and contribute to the pollution that the world currently has.

It is important to be sure with your choice. Green Choice Carpet should be your choice. It will always be best to choose a company that only uses materials that are environment friendly. The company should have staff members that are well trained but will not sacrifice the environment by using materials that will only contribute to the greenhouse effect and other environment problems that people are already experiencing right now.
