As one of my 2015 resolutions, I have begun work on my garden. Before today the only thing in my potted garden were spring onions and leeks. So with the seedlings given to me by friends and family I decided to grow my humble garden to add a few more plants.
I was able to buy teracotta pots from the market at Php50/pc. These are sturdy, heavy pots which will survive the strong winds during storm season. And by buying from the area it helps the local economy. (Win-win situation right?)
Luckily, we have potted soil with rice hull added to it. Rice hull acts like a buffer making the water flow easier through the soil to reach the plant's roots. It is also a great source of nutrients.
Slowly I transplanted my seedlings of rosemary, cadlum, and bell pepper. In addition I planted basil seeds into 3 different pots. Boy did I get my hands muddy today!
Fruits of my morning labor look lovely. I of course couldn't pass off the opportunity to put calligraphy in my new hobby --- a gold sharpie pen was the perfect tool to label the pots.
Here are the new additions to my garden:
