I have been meaning to share with you this not so secret garden that we have at home. I have been realizing more and more that I am most fascinated about filling up all the available lot space that we have with edible plants. I guess this comes from being a vegetarian and a naturalist at heart as well. I have refrained from tending our garden myself because I realize that I am not so much of a green thumb like my grandmother who can grow anything from any branch of any plant.
She can even make those that have been exported from all sorts of places adjust to whatever soil after a few times of attending to it. So I have vowed to partner with experts on this field and as a result, I have become the creative side of gardening while execution is done by those who do it best. Perfect combination, I have to say. Here’s the result so far… This is Casa Antonio’s partial facade
The landscape was conceptualized by my sister in law, Vicki Pangilinan who I rely on for her exquisite taste. Our garden is expertly maintained by our amazing gardener/ horticulturist, Mang Julian.
Since building a house takes a lot of time and resources, we are taking it one step at a time. We have decided to turn available space that has not been landscaped into something useful so behind this manicured facade, we came up with these:
1. An Herb Garden with my favorite herbs like oregano, onion leeks, cilantro, parsely, mint, citronella, basil, and so much more!
2. Fruit trees
3. Vegetable gardens all over
The best part of tending a garden is harvesting its fruits and produce and being delivered by my darling baby ✶
