organic farming

A couple of days ago I wrote about our backyard harvest. And in honor of Earth Day I am writing about organic farming.
Organic farming is technique used in farming without the use of any chemicals or synthetics. The aim of organic farming is to produce crops which have the highest nutritional values with least impact on nature.
There is no definitive study whether organic food is more nutritious than conventional food. Testing was done with animals only. And before you get all worked up no harm was done to the animals. They were just fed with organic food. And the animals that were fed with organic food appeared to be healthier and had better reproductive performance as compared to animals that were given conventional food.
Whether or not organic food is more nutritious one thing is certain, organic food definitely tastes better.
Here are pictures of our mini-organic farm:

cards and a massage

Since hubs' blood pressure is rising we've agreed that he should refrain from sleeping in the afternoons. And so to occupy ourselves we decided to play cards (pusoy dos) with the loser having to massage the winner for 30 minutes. Guess who won?

I so love having massages!

from our backyard

All of these came from our backyard.

Earlier in the year my mother, my husband and our helper started planting vegetables in our backyard. And in time all the watering and gardening paid off. If we need egpplant we just pick it off from the plant. Like here in this picture we harvested malunggay leaves, talong and tanglad. We also needed tomatoes but our tomatoes aren't ripe yet so we bought from the village talipapa.
We also have chinese kangkong, sili, kamatis, pechay, and mustasa. They also planted squash but no flower from it yet so we still have to wait before we can eat off of it.
I can honestly say we are eating fresh and organic vegetables. May mas fresh pa ba sa pagkapitas eh lulutin na?

love shopping...for groceries!

One chore I love doing is shopping for groceries. Really. And so I am looking forward to tomorrow because it's time to go to the grocery once more.
One brand I buy a lot of is Del Monte...tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, tomato ketcup, fruit cocktail, fruit juices, and yes even fit n right (sometimes!)I am not getting paid to blog about them ha! I'm just sharing.

I usually do my grocery shopping at SM. Although I sense that their meats aren't so fresh. I like buying meat from Fresh Options Meatshop. For the fish, we usually buy at the market or from our neighborhood talipapa.
