The promise of things to come

15 Aug

Ah, the beautiful journey of a seed to germinate, a bud to blossom, and the flower bearing fruit. And through the journey, the Pitter Potter Gardener is patiently watching nature unfold its miracles one petal at a time. The promise of things to come, seems much more beautiful than the arrival itself. Here are some of those joys that have filled my heart with the warmth of a sunny day. ( Much needed in the rainy Bengaluru weather)

A fuzzy baby tomato, standing all stout and cute:



The enticing lure of the peas in a pod , just waiting to fatten up:



The spectacular green of the onion bulbs that are shooting up:


And my favourite, a little carrot head pushing up into the world.



Cant wait to see them all grown up soon . Stay tuned for the next posts to witness their journey.

    My tomatoes are just about as tiny! But my carrots aren’t doing much, I think my soil is too tough. Bah!

      Sorry to hear that , tomatoes are easy to go, but carrots have always proven to be tricky.I think the soil needs to be loosened up often. I am waiting for my first batch of carrots.

    This post gives such a positive feel … I have not tried my hands at gardening but i am sure … must be therapeutic .. Cheers!

      Thanks Sangeeta, Yes, gardening is very uplifting and is cheaper than therapy. Hheeh. You must try it,

    Lovely pictures, I miss having a garden. Nothing tastes as good as homegrown produce.

      Hi , I miss having a garden too. Unfortunately, now I am just left with a few pots and a sunny balcony. I agree with you on the homegrown produce tasting awesome. it is indeed a true fruit of my labour.
