Wah, can’t believe I’m a week late blogging about my 2019. Truth to be told, I fell ill a day after Christmas and never felt like my healthy grounded self even until today. There are lingering cough, sore throat, mouth ulcers and stomach discomfort, all which I know are detox symptoms.
Anyway, here’re how my 2019 fare…
This year flew by slowly. The slowest I’ve ever felt in recent decades. It was quite a good year.
I continued where I left off at 2018 in 2019. I dug into my inner world, find out how I operate from the programmings which I downloaded unconsciously (there were lots of fear-based living & thinking), learn to talk to my inner child, learn to listen to my gut/intuition (I’ve got it right quite a few times! It’s usually the first thought that comes up, very positive and tell you straight. If it’s fear-based, then it’s the ego), learn to listen to my body, learn about boundary and implement it, learn to think positively and practice gratefulness.
I once buried the leftover bones from bone broth making into my garden. I had attempted at making my own bone meal but failed because the pork bones were just too tough and strong. I never find out what happened to the buried bones, but I never saw them again despite digging up the area for planting after a couple of months later. So, I guess they’ve composted.
Bone meal is the dried and ground powder form of animal bones. It contains a good amount of phosphorus and calcium and is a wonderful fertilizer for the plants.
I was going to post this topic on Instagram when I realized it’s too long for Insta and a proper post is needed. So, here it is.
Please note that I’ve had my fair shares of successes and failures when buying naked vegetables (without plastic packaging) from various places. Naked vegetables are far and in-between these days especially in supermarkets as most are already pre-wrapped in plastics or cling wraps. Below are some examples of my experiences.
Playing with Econsave price stickers NOT!
Currently, I utilize 3 types of composting system in my home and only one of them need harvesting that is bottle composting while the other two (piece by piece composting and dig & bury aka pit composting) don’t need harvesting as they decompose on and in the soils.
Finished compost in bottle composting system. My soils and plants will be so delighted!
After using this header of Chester (shown below) for 8 years+, I finally changed it. I’ve been meaning to update it after Chester passed. I finally got hardworking and changed the header when I updated the blog’s theme recently.
What do you feed your plants? Besides sunshine, water, air and love that is. 🌞🥤🌬️💕
I used to feed my plants with store-bought fertilizers but not anymore. FYI, the ones I used were organic and non-organic kinds. I always find store-bought fertilizers come with an extremely strong chemical smell. So it makes me wonder whether I should keep using these chemical-laden fertilizers? My instinct said no. And so, I ditched the store-bought fertilizers including store-bought animal’s manure (the manure smells like manure though) 2 years+ ago. From then on I make my own vitamins to supplement my plants. I prefer to call it vitamins instead of fertilizers though.
