5 things to begin your gardening journey

One thing that constantly inspired me and my music in the entire lockdown was my tiny home garden. I share my garden updates with my Instagram family and their constant motivation and queries inspired me to jot these points down. Having a few house plants will give you abundant happiness and joy along with a few health benefits too. Whether you are an avid gardener or an aspiring one, these few essential things will enrich your gardening journey.

  1. Potting soil

The basic ingredient to healthy plants is good quality potting soil. You can get some from local nurseries or have a go at this tried and tested one delivered at your home

2. Vermicompost

Adding this vermi-compost has shown good results with our flowering plants and the overall health of all house plants.

3. Manure

It is funny how we circle back to basics. Even though we have made huge cities and changed the essence of our lifestyle with technology, the basics like : strength of manure for plants, takes us back to the days when we knew these marvels without any pre-existing technologies. We try and put this manure in our plants at least once every 20 days

4. Grow bags

These lightweight grow bags are a win for beginning your gardening journey and are best suitable for apartments with balconies.

5. Veggie seeds

Start your home vegetable garden with this 10 variety of vegetable seeds. We have grown a couple easy ones at home and it is an amazingly fulfilling experience.

It is often said that we might think we are nurturing our garden but of course it is the garden that is nurturing us!

Keep it green, double your happiness

I am of the humble opinion that, in the already existing set of chaos in our external environment, we can try and minimise the problems caused by us! There are a million ways to do it and I am always inspired by so many people sharing amazing ideas to do so!

The festival season has begun in India and the Ganesh festival marks an important one. At such times, I often remember powerful words from a very special song :

देव देव्हाऱ्यात नाही, देव नाही देवालयी
देव चोरुन नेईल, अशी कोणाची पुण्याई?

Idol worshipping is a topic for another day but today I would just like to share a small snippet of how we can double our festive happiness. Last year me and my husband made a Ganesh Idol out of our garden soil. We had sowed tomato seeds and till date we eat fresh tomatoes from the same plant! Watch the step by step process here : https://www.instagram.com/stories/highlights/18066855178084271/

Belief is a strong virtue and no-one is asking to step away from it. The only thing matters is how you practice your belief. If buying idols made from non bio-degradable materials makes some-one’s belief work, we are no-one to judge that some-one, but the planet will surely judge him/her, so good luck with that!

I know that sustainability is an ocean of actions and may be we can’t just achieve it with small drops all of a sudden. But just by taking small actions, we can surely add up to the level!
