Every morning, I cannot help to gaze on my organic plants. I love watching their fresh soft leaves savor each drop of mildew. There are times that I think they are smiling while greeting me good morning so I greet them back with a wide grin. I remember what my late grandmother used to say “talking to plants can help them grow faster and will keep them healthier”. How would I forget those memories? Grandma used to own a big garden with hexagonal gazebo. That is where we spent most our mornings and afternoons. She sometimes tag me along when looking for gazebo kits and new plants and even asked for my opinion as to which I think would make her garden more beautiful.
Obviously, I got my love for plants from grandma. I am grateful as well that she passed on to me her green thumb. I just sprinkle any plant’s seeds and I am able to get them grow well. I’ve learned that I don’t need a big garden to grow healthy plants. All I need are four basic elements…soil, water, light and good environment (humidity and temperature).
my organic jute plant
Though I do not own a big garden with gazebo like that of grandma’s, my organic plants on pots are as healthy as her plants. Maintaining my organic plants and watch them grow everyday is very rewarding. Now I know exactly how grandma used to feel. Wherever she is now, I am sure she is very proud of me.
