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.
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.
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.

There are plenty of fish in the sea, but not all of them need to be part of your aquarium. It’s easy to be attracted to a fish’s brilliant colors or unique features and want to include it in your set-up, but the more fish you have, the larger your aquarium needs to be. A 1-inch fish needs about one gallon of water, so keep your fish count low if living arrangements limit you to a smaller tank.
Having the right setting is important for an aquarium. Hard, flat surfaces are a requirement, and it needs to be somewhere out of reach of children and pets. Anything but the smallest fish tanks also needs to be on sturdy furniture due to the weight of the water. For a set-up to go swimmingly, rely on the expertise of a professional by searching for Aquarium Installation denver or in your area.
Healthy fish require more than just a tank and water. Cleaning supplies and water treatment materials are necessary, as is a heater, filter, gravel, fish food, hood and light. You’ll likely also want to dress up the aquarium with plants and decorative items.
There’s nothing fishy about wanting a pet. Keep these tips in mind before an uninformed purchase leaves you all wet.
