i-up ko na din to para sa mga interesadong hardinero.

my grandmother is big on plants. flowering, shrubs, bonsais, etc.

lately lang ako nagka interest nung nakapag pa usbong ako ng fortune bamboo at napalago ko yung basil plant ko - low maintenance plants. pero ito na nga at lumalago na interes ko dahil dumadagdag pa yung kagustuhan kong makapag pa tubo ng sarili kong chili plant for research purposes(refer to Hot Sauce Research).

would like to try aqua/hydrophonics pero may makikialam sa bahay so wag muna ngayon.

Kami ni kumander heto dream naming dalawa kaya naka ipon nung hininto ko yung mga GAS attack. We acquired around 1500 square meters of land right near where we live smack in Laoag city.

You are in a city but it feels so rural I love it. Not a hobby but a lifestyle of our not so distant future and a dream within reach to be our own selves and escape the tyranny of the monthly paycheck.

Nice!  What crops are there?  How do you even start to manage a farm lot?  Gusto ko rin 'to.

Anything except rice. Whatever that grows locally but also lots of flowers to atrract bees and plants that creep to provide shade and of course fruit bearing trees and bamboo and bananas
And avocado. Papayas, sweet yam and corn, pumpkin .

Im usually staring at air during work just thinking of all the things i want to plant its embarassing.

And the fun part is we have no idea how to do it.

Libro brad. Start reading on gardening and plant stuff. Para pag uwi mo may gagawin ka na and you know what to buy. Pag wala ka ulit, ibilin mo na lang kung ano gagawin.

Whatever you do dont use any chemicals or weed killer. Yung mga nalaman ko ay gumagamit sila ng straw or hay to cover the ground. Some use dead leaves or anything like woodchips or palay by products.
Nung bata ako sa Baguio i remember the ground was covered entirely of pine needles. No weeds growing when they are literally covered with it.

World Naked Gardening Day is upon us – here are 9 horrors to avoid


Get your hoes out everyone, it’s World Naked Gardening Day.
We’re used to seeing tits and thrushes in the garden, but today we could be seeing a whole lot more.
The weather may not be at its optimum for weeding in the nude, but everyone is being encouraged to tend to their flower beds as nature intended.
In fact, there’s a whole website dedicated to the cause, which claims that it is now the 10th annual World Naked Gardening Day. Gosh, that came around fast, didn’t it?
But letting it all hang free while brandishing shears comes with its risks.
Here are some rules to follow on this special horticultural day.

Had the chance to go hoem and work on our farm for 4 days. Everyday i would wake up around 4:30-5:00 just before the break of dawn and ive had my first taste of farm life. It hit me in the face lookin at how hard it was walkin around on heavy mud caked boots plantin fruit bearing trees, manually crushing pests off the pumpkins, running out of space on where to plant. Looking for weeds to pull out.

It was also a very spiritual experience on my part especially when i got my hands dirty trying to notice the condition of the soil. The environment and all the things that i can do, what else to plant maybe a deep well here and a small shack over there.

Yeah i was happy for a few days but i know farming aint no piece of cake. Im not ruling out the trees i planted will survive so im throwing expectations out the window.


Bare footed father in law. The real bad a ss farmer.



Wild Saluyot. I adore these. I love it so much i smuggled seeds back in HK. Ill try to plant it here.


I got some young trees from the BAR in Baguio city namely lemon trees, rambutan, more guyabano trees and pomelos and tried to plant them as much as we could. The rest in pots like the lemons.
