Fresh Harvest

It’s been a while since I last posted here. having four blogs to maintain makes one neglect the others. Anyway, I’ll be updating this site from time to time, I just got so used in staying at Dreams and Escapes. It’s nice to see our modest vegetable garden bearing fruits again.

Fresh ampalaya, jute leaves and calamansi. Jute or what we call saluyot in the vernacular is medicinal too. Three days ago, I harvested more than kilo of calamansi (Philippine lime).  My son and I love calamansi juice and having a glass of freshly squeezed calamansi is better than commercially produced fruit drinks.

We also have this jackfruit growing nicely. Maybe in a month or two, it would be ready for harvest.

And these new shoots would be perfect for that yummy “ginataang langka”.

About arlene

Life starts with a beautiful dream. Life starts in somehow believing that one day you’ll get what you wished and prayed for. Life starts with something you believe you can do and dream about. My entries here are mostly about my journey as a cancer patient, a cancer survivor, a mother, a friend, and about the books I read, places I want to visit and have visited, people I want to meet someday and mostly about the daily grind of simple living. Dreams and Escapes is about having enough faith to go on, the will to live no matter how difficult life may seem sometimes and grateful appreciations of all the things one holds dear. It is about the belief that I could share a little of my journey through writing and writing is an escape for me. When things get a little too hard to bear, I put them into perspective by sharing them here. Dreams and Escapes, why not?

    Dear Ms. Arlene,

    I stumbled upon your blog months ago when I was searching for photos of local backyard gardens.

    However, I seldom make comments or give likes on blogs because I usually feel embarrassed.

    Nevertheless, I made contact because I am nominating you for the One Lovely Blog Award. It is informational, inspirational, and very interesting especially for gardeners.

    You can pick up your badge and to know the rules/info, please visit:
