Welcome to my blog

It is a pleasure to take care of my garden. Every day I want to have more plants. When I visit a relative I observe their gardens and if I see a plant that I don't have I ask them for seeds or cuttings and I get excited at home and immediately start to take care of that cutting until I finally see roots and happily place it in a pot. It is a passion.

Some aromatics in my garden:

- Basil:

This plant was a gift from my brother-in-law several years ago: 
I have used it as a cooking ingredient in sauces and pizzas.

- Aloe: 

This plant was given to me by my mom from her garden.
I have used it when my daughter suffered a blow to her arm, and I immediately applied it to the area, and in minutes the blow had subsided.                 Also in case of a burn on my hand while cooking.
I applied it and in minutes I felt a lot of relief. It heals irritations, wounds, burns, psoriasis, and acne.

- It is anti-inflammatory and antiseptic.
- It is moisturizing, protects the skin.
- Combats skin aging.
- Contains vitamin C and E, A, B1, B2, B6 and folic acid.

  • Planting of pumpkin seedlings:

I prepared the soil with compost and proceeded to plant all the seedlings. There have been two days of rain in a row, which benefits the planting. I want the planting to happen because vegetables are very expensive, and having some at home guarantees part of my family's food.

Finishing the tour in my gardens, I picked the parchitas or passion fruit, I have to make juices for the week. Now I use the juice in meals such as chicken and pork, they are delicious. Being gardeners is to have a commitment with life, you must always be aware of each plant every day, it is like having children. They are members of our families, that is why we are passionate about them. If we take care of them we have beautiful children for a long time. And they give us fruit, flowers and shade.

Amazing tour, and I really enjoyed it. I know some of the plants in this tour such as tomatoes and Aleo. Right now, its also the rainy season in my place and farmers are busy preparing their farms for planting. Your tomatoes look great, big thanks to the rain and your efforts. Keep up the great work.

I will share your post on threads to help other people see it.

You have a very beautiful garden with lots of plants in it. I love gardens and I have a little one where I planted pumpkin, maize, pepper, water leaf and the rest. And yes, I also have aloe, it's in a plastic bucket at my verandah.
