Reconnecting with earth’s gracious produce

With all that’s been making the face of the earth tremor with fear for life, I realized that we need to take a moment to appreciate, admire and utilize the goodness of nature’s gracious produce. So today, myself and mom, we payed a visit to the Organic Veggie Farm, Vimochana, run by Aunty Selvika. It was a joy to pick our own veggies 🍅 straight off the crops. I’ve never seen more fresh and large vegetables and it turned out to be a real treat and quite an experience. Btw, I had a brief encounter with Turkey Lurkey 🦃. DAMN! That guy survived the skyfall. But I’ll save that story for some other time. Plants 🌱 do not merely grow on soil. They grow on the effort invested by tiring hands🤚🏻 and toiling insects 🐞. They thrive on the work expended by someone who cares for them. And gardening can be more than just a hobby. It can serve as a form of therapy, a source of produce or even just bring about pure joy. And especially during these times when the island keeps going under intermittent lockdowns, a veggie garden can be a life-saver.Mom and Grandma are avidly interested in veggies 🌶 & florals 🌸, respectively. And I’ve come to enjoy the fresh yield from our spinach patch 🥬 more than the ones we get at the supermarket. It truly has an acquired taste. Well, enough ‘bout my spinach addiction, tho 🤫. I kinda spiraled there a bit. What was I gonna say 🤔…Oh yeah! So, I encourage each and everyone of you to get your very own home garden going, that is, if you already haven’t. Trust me … You’d love the output of your labor when you pluck that first 🍆 or 🥕. Also, visit Vimochana. Their services to the society are truly inspiring.
