Pocket Garden

There is an open space around the villa I rented. Because there are all cement stones, only some weeds grow there. I feel very sorry to see it deserted, so I went outside with some soil by electric car and came back. After going back and forth for dozens of times, I finally filled the open space and planted some vegetables there. Last year, I first buried some cucumber seeds, pepper seeds and soybean seeds in that piece of land. The seedlings soon broke out and grew fast, but they didn’t bloom and bear fruit for a long time. I don’t dare to judge whether this phenomenon is normal for those who haven’t been farming for a long time. I just set up a shelf for them with a bamboo pole, watering them every day and fertilizing them irregularly. This vegetable garden almost started at the same time as my business, so during that time, I was looking forward to the early success of the business, and I was also looking forward to the flowering and fruiting of cucumber seedlings and bean seedlings downstairs. About half a month later, when I almost lost patience, the cucumber seedling first bloomed yellow flowers, first one, and then turned into a piece the next day, then purple flowers came out from the bean seedling. I was very excited and watered them more diligently. Soon they all produced green cucumbers and beans, and after a few days they grew up to the extent that they could eat. At the beginning, my wife and I were very delighted with this kind of cucumber planted by ourselves. Standing under the cucumber shelf, we picked a cucumber casually and washed it in the pool beside us, when I came back, I stood under the cucumber shelf and enjoyed other hanging cucumbers and beans while eating. I felt a sense of satisfaction. Soon the Pepper also bloomed white flowers, and soon it was full of pepper. Beans and cucumbers also ripen quickly. We eat cold mixed cucumbers and fried beans every day. The pepper was then ripe in large quantities. We really couldn’t finish it, so we picked a lot and gave it to my younger brother. Later, I planted some nee again. During that time, we didn’t buy vegetables, and all we ate were the freshest beans and peppers. When making salad and noodles, cut some Nee and put it inside, which tastes very fragrant. At that time, my business was still very bleak, and I didn’t receive an order except that some customers asked me to take samples. I have been thinking that business is just like a small vegetable garden downstairs. As long as you keep fertilizing and watering, you will get results one day. Hard work pays off. At the end of the year, I finally received several good orders. When I got the orders, I thought of the small vegetable garden again. It was so similar that I could bear the temper, if you work hard, there will always be results. This year, I once again planted beans, melons, cucumbers, Chenjie and pepper in the small vegetable garden, but there was night rain when I planted Chenjie twice. The next morning, when I saw it, it was beaten to death by the rain, and the pleiform never sprouted. The vegetable melons planted also turned into cucumbers after flowering and fruiting, and then ushered in a long plum rain season. Cucumbers and beans are both hot and water-loving plants, and they are most afraid of the wet rainy season, so they will soon be tortured to yellow by the rainy season after they bear a bunch of fruits, it’s just like a person getting old when he is just in middle age. What is gratifying is that after the rainy season, pepper grows slowly and blooms and bears fruit. The green and large pepper grows well. These days we are enjoying the green and environment-friendly life brought by Pepper. Yesterday, I dug a piece of land again and scattered some seed of Euphorbia seed, waiting for it to take root and sprout. In a couple of days, I plan to remove the bean and melon racks, plant some green vegetables, and continue to enjoy this kind of green life in autumn and winter. In fact, life is always like growing vegetables. You will grow vegetables whatever you sow. Sow seeds, try hard to water and fertilize them, and take care of them meticulously, which will eventually produce fruits that satisfy you. Don’t worry in this process, because everything has its own laws. We can’t go against the laws of nature and let it grow the results you need too early and too fast. If so, what grows may be the crooked melon and split jujube. Another feeling is that it is not reliable to eat on the sky. If I cover this pocket garden with plastic greenhouse, it may not be affected by the rainy season. However, most of China’s current agriculture still depends on the weather. If the new year is good, they will receive three or five more. If the new year is bad, they may not receive anything. For example, in this year’s flood, many farmers may not receive anything, chinese farmers are still very passive. Of course, there are also regrets. When I couldn’t finish eating pepper last year, I often got up in the morning and there would be a lot less. So did this year. The cucumbers hanging on the shelf would disappear inexplicably, I’m not sure it was stolen by someone, but the loss of fruits at least makes people uncomfortable. Anyway, the Pocket Garden brings us more happiness and enjoyment. I like this small vegetable garden, which will become a classic memory in my life.
