Gardening Hobby

I started a planting hobby this month. I figure planting is something I can have fun with alone. I started mostly from seeds and picked the ones I know I like and likely eat.
Way above are microgreens that I grew by the window sill from seeds. I forgot to take a picture today. It's too late. I ate them for a snack this morning. It tasted like broccoli which I do like. From seeds, in ten days they look green carpeting on the tray.
The 4-leaf seedling is the very first one among the 30 plants I planted last week. It's my future mustard greens to add to my smoothie or maybe sinigang (Filipino dish).

I mentioned that this hobby is something I can enjoy alone but I don't have to be alone. Here, my grandson is looking at the bare tower garden. They look bare in this angle but each pocket is filled with soil and some seeds.

Look at my oyster mushrooms. I just ten days, they grew so fast. I sauteed them today. So simply delicious.

Overdue Gratitude

Hello, hello. I am here after two months. I have been meaning to write my gratitude but did not get myself to sit down and actually type and post it. My daughter turned 21, an adult but still young at heart and spirit. She is my forever baby and youngest and smallest.  We celebrated 2020 style, just me and her in Estes. We stayed in a condo with a nice view. The place was by the stream and the water was not all frozen yet. We could hear the water flowing with its relaxing nature sound. We walked outdoors in with the cold breeze. Surprise, surprise, we were the only ones outdoors. The masks, I must admit, felt good to wear as our breath, at least, bouncing back on our face felt warm. Paul and I celebrated our two-months anniversary in a neighboring state and ordered takes-outs. We hang out (in?) ate, drank, and talked. The drive was beautiful passing by packs of rams unsuspecting of the cars passing by. We finally got our professional wedding (and video) shots. They are all beautiful in
