Growing your own fruits and vegetables can offer in the opportunity to reduce the amount of pesticides that you use in your garden, making them healthier.

Na-harvest ko sa munti kong garden. Hindi nasisira ang mga sili ko tapos ang dami pang mamunga. Lagi kasing kinakain ng snails yung ibang pananim ko eh. Etong sili at ampalaya ang maayos sa mga tanim ko. Kaya naisipan ko na magtanim ng maraaaaaaaaaming sili para aanihin ko na lang ang mga sili na ginagamit ko sa gourmet tuyo ko at sa suka ko. Minsan kase umaabot ng P600 isang kilo ang sili! Jusmiyo! Kamahaaaaaal! Kaya magtatanim na lang ako ng maraming sili sa garden. Musta na mga pananim nyo? May bunga na pala yung mais ko at pipino! Yung watermelon ko, may bulaklak na! #NerisGarden #NerisFarmFarman #NerisFarm #growyourownfood #growsomegreen #WaisNaMisis #WaisKahitDiPaMisis #VeryNeri
Mga pipino ko! Masarap papakin, masarap din ilagay sa suka tapos konting asin, asukal, at paminta! Sulit na sawsawan! Masarap kapartner sa fried chichen o kaya adobo! My favoooooorite! Kakagutom! Mga ilang araw pa pwede na i-harvest to. Kaya ang ulam muna namin ay pritong isda at ginisang labong! Saraaaaaaaap! #NerisGarden #NerisFarmFarman #NerisFarm #VeryNeri #WaisNaMisis #WaisKahitDiPaMisis #gardening #growyourownfood #growsomegreen
