Before the zeal I picked from this event goes off, I took the first step towards growing something in my balcony. I had kept aside a garlic bulb which had two teeny shoots peeping out. Also when I picked spring onion from the store this weekend, I picked the one which has maximum roots on it.… Continue reading Day 96 – A tiny start

I attended a class in a local nursery on growing greens. It was my first time there. But the conversation with the enthusiastic lady at the counter inspired me to think about growing our own food as far as possible. She made it sound like a breeze. I don’t know if I have that kind… Continue reading Day 94 – Learning

Yesterday was a day I clocked 10k+ steps. After the hike and a nap, we headed out for a VIP movie experience in a private balcony seating where food was served in our seats while enjoying Jumanji. Enjoyed curling up in companion seats and watching the movie.
Sneaked in with a friend couple for a hike today as J was busy preparing for a presentation next week. It was a fun morning. The 4 mile hike offers good view of the city. But since it is winter, it was all dry and grey. The positive side of J not being around is… Continue reading Day 87 – Hiked
