Beauty of Life

When you feel alone

A feeling of Sadness and Uncertainty

There is always a ray of light

Waiting for you.

You must have patience and hope

Without it

It will be hard to exist

Life has a lot of ups and downs

Once you reach the light

There will be lots of happiness and laughter

Be patience, my love

Favorite Classes-Aquaponics and Olericulture.

Hey everyone- I finally finished studying and doing my homework for two of my classes, Aquaponics and Olericulture
imageFor my aquaponic class- I was able to build my own mini system thanks to Cool Professor Mike.  We just finished week 7 of classes. And so far my coleus is doing great, and My baby heirloom purple Cherokee tomato plant 😀 It’s growing really fast compare to the one I planted in soil. I love aquaponics. I got 6 platies fish (livebearers) and one plecostomus ( an algae eater)

Here’s a couple of red wriggler cocoons- I was able to see one come out of its cocoons while I observed it under the microscope-  Soo cool!!!!

For my olericulture class- I learned how to make soil blocks- Super easy to make and very affordable.

A couple weeks ago, My partners and I had to build our own cold frame. It took about 4hrs to create. (We never worked with tools) We planted different cool weather seeds (radish, lettuce, and turnips) on the soil blocks. Once the seedling grew- we had to transplant the soil blocks to the cold frame.

I took this picture earlier today, and everything looks so big and delicious- Can’t wait to harvest those greens. Yummmy~! 🙂

DragonFly

“Having flown the earth for 300 million years, dragonflies symbolize our ability to overcome times of hardship. They can remind us to take time to reconnect with our strength courage and happiness.”

As I was visiting my garden, I noticed a dragonfly flying all over. Then she stopped to rest and was there for a while and decided to take pictures of her.
