Eating the Fruits of My Garden

Here in the United States of America or anywhere in the world they have specific breakfast to eat. I grow up in poverty which we are thankful to whatever our parents will provide in the table. So this morning since I do not yearn for greasy bacon, egg, and pancake (typical American breakfast)I decided to cook my breakfast out from my garden.

My Husband Built a Trellis for My Gourd Plant


Today my husband built a trellis for my calabash gourd plant(upo as Tagalog). It is not as fancy as other trellis but functional. I tried to plant gourd if it will survive in my garden. Sometimes I think that some plants do not survive on me (lol). Thank you very much, my beloved husband, for the trellis :)

Planting Mandevilla in Springtown, Texas


Today, I planted this flowering vine directly to the ground that caught my attention yesterday while we were in Lowes. I want to experiment if this flowering vine called Mandevilla will survive until winter here in Springtown. There are 5 months to ground itself and hoping it will bloom this coming Spring 2021. Though I read some comments that Mandevilla flowering plant loves heat and won't survive the winter.

I am Disappointed with my Garden Result-Gardening in Springtown, Texas


I am not an expert like my Dad which people call him as the best gardener in Delles(La Union, Philippines) before. Back in Arizona, I have a little garden with cowpeas, long beans, sweet potatoes, and okras. My Arizona gardening gave me a better result than here in Texas.

Growing Giant Spinach in Springtown, Texas


I planted some vegetables last April 13, 2020. My husband and I were amazed by the size because I was expecting the smaller spinach which I normally buy from Brookshire. I realized that I planted giant spinach. I sauteed it with yellow onions for our breakfast. Of course, I am a Filipina so, plain rice is not missing in my breakfast, mmm yummy.

My 40th Birthday Wish - Having a Vegetable Garden


My wish for my 40th birthday is to have a vegetable garden. My husband wasn't able to build it before because it was raining for almost 2 weeks. Anyways it doesn't matter, what matters most is that I have a garden. I am excited to have a vegetable garden here in Texas. I want to see roses someday in my backyard and grow my own vegetables.

Gardening in Arizona


I bought some cheap wood from Home Depot
and make a wall for my garden. I used these bags of sand which been there for a year to hold the wood in place. I mixed up the original soil in our backyard with the regular all-purpose miracle grow garden soil from Home Depot.
