Hello. Welcome to my site.
I am a proud mom and devoted wife, with a great job in a city here in Metro Manila. Growing organic vegetables had always fascinated me, thanks to my mother who at 70 can grow practically anything in her small backyard.
So I thought of pursuing this passion by enrolling in a gardening class. Then I experimented on a few vegetable seeds and had been quite successful with some.
Since then, I became obsessed with growing my own vegetables and herbs. I need to grow them in containers, to maximize whatever limited space is available for me in our neighborhood.
I must admit that I made a lot of mistakes along the way. I blame the instructions on the seed packet labels which were not helpful at all. This led me to research and learn a lot about particular plants through the internet.
The popular blog sites, as I realized later, mostly catered to gardening in cold weather conditions, not to tropical climates like ours here in the Philippines.
I started my own blog so I could share my urban gardening journey with fellow enthusiasts, most especially those living in hot and humid climate zones.
I do hope you enjoy reading my posts. The site is a continuing work in progress. I will try my best to update it with new posts at least twice a month. Your suggestions and comments are very much appreciated.
Thank you for visiting my website.
