It’s been a long time since I gardened. I remember those days. Isn’t gardening one of those activities that you tend to do when your life is running comfortably? S0 today I decided to garden.
My neighbor prepared the soil. It’s a 50-50 mixture of spent stalks of palay (rice plant) and the clayish soil of Bancao-Bancao. The stalks are called diame <die-a-me> in Pilipino.
The soil around here feels thick. It’s muddy because clayish soil has absorbed all the rain that’s fallen this week.
Each pot below cost 25 bucks (about 60 U.S. cents). It’s made of recycled truck tires. I bought it from three emaciated children who were selling these pots to earn food money.
Make sure the bottom of the crown makes firm contact with the soil.

I’m going to time-lapse that. I mean that I’m going to photograph its deterioration.
Here’s how it’ll start:
Time-lapse videos are one of my favorites.
Here are two spectacular examples:
