A gratifying week of the year 2022 to start a harvest with our blooming and green plants that are wavering in our mini-organic garden, we had winged beans that is in front of our Provincial Training Center Building, pechay or “bokchoi”, pigeon pea, string beans and lima beans or  “patani”.

            Indeed, farming is a fulfilling profession when we harvest planted without the fear of toxic elements in our daily food because we personally maintained them organically.

            Considering the hardship in improving the soil quality, manual weeding and taking care of the plants, at last, they are just arms away from the kitchen. We generate savings from buying at the market and help reduce public health risks for us consumers, mounting evidence shows that food grown organically are rich in nutrients, such as Vitamin C, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus, with less exposure to nitrates and pesticide residues in organically grown fruits, vegetables, and grains when compared to conventionally grown products.

            Our garden has become our main source of food especially when pandemic hits our community; it does not just give us food to eat but also teach us many things to reflect on such as “wag magsayang ng pagkain”. The hardship of planting makes us more understand the worth of every food that we are going to eat.

Winged beans or “pallang” is a good source of protein, potassium and vitamin C.
