I wonder how many people kept up with the gardening-for-food fad that Covid isolation brought on. For myself, I haven’t been very successful. The bittergourd run is ending but I have a few little things going.
I may not have a green thumb but I do enjoy trying to grow flowers, fruit and vegetables.
I’m very grateful to have my small space that is sunny enough for plants and other visitors. The little garden rewards me when I pay it attention, and I have been giving it more attention since work-from-home started!
Some of the improvement must surely be due to the reduced frequency of insecticides-spraying, as many of workers were quarantined because of Covid-19. It makes me happy to see the flying insects and little worms, even if some of my leaves have a few too many holes in them. Live and let live I say.
Only the bittergourd made it.
All the leafy veg died, wilted in infancy.
The eggplant and cucumber are stunted.
But the bittergourd made it.
As with many other stay at home families during this period, I took to gardening and tried my hand at vegetables. Unfortunately the results are dismal. Fortunately supermarket shelves are now well-stocked. But I’ll keep trying 🙂
Mom is well. She doesn’t recognise vegetables anymore but can feed herself. For that we’re thankful.
