Yard Stories

Since I could remember my parents have been very gardening types. I remember having plenty of rose plants, veggies, fruits in our garden and backyard. And when I say gardening types I mean the ones who are themselves so much into the task. My parents actually ‘did’ gardening and had all the knowledge of plants and everything gardening. Growing around such parents you are bound to take up some of their interests!

When I came to Husby’s home I found out that these people are gardeners too,well not by profession πŸ™‚ The backyard is full of fruit trees like mango, guava, papaya, custard apple and banana and plants like curry leave and colocasiaΒ . [So many fruits to pluck and eat and I’m still fat,huh! anyway,that’s not the point here]

So, like I said I carried my parent’s interest of gardening and how? I like beautiful manicured garden in the front and the trees at the back to sit and relax under them. But all this hard work has to be done by somebody else [read:Β maliΒ here] πŸ™‚

Few days agoΒ Mali BabaΒ got us some tomato plants and I was thrilled cause I love tomatoes so much so that I can survive on them alone!

And now that plant has started yielding the fruits,like literally πŸ™‚ This takes me to my childhood when mum used to tell me go get some greenΒ chilies or tomatoes orΒ kadhi patta plucked! The joy of using these things from your own yard Β in cooking was not known to me until I started doing the same in my home. But the joy of plucking was inexpressible then and today also !

Greenie Greens for Chutney

And today I have Chirpy to ask for some tomatoes from the garden πŸ™‚ I feel like my mother…Truly said, life comes a full circle,whatever & wherever!Β I’m counting my blessings that I’m given chance to relive those moments, in a different way!
