Let me tell you something about me.
I am one of those moms who would love to have her own small garden of herbs and vegetables. That each morning, I would harvest my own eggplants and squash or anything I prefer to prepare for my family. That I could ask my little boy to pick for me some calamansi or tomatoes at our small garden anytime I please. And that I need not buy dried and bottled herbs as I could always have them readily available in our own herb pots.
Sadly, we do not have a big yard for that dream. Despite that, though, I have tried a dozen times to grow some onions and calamansi and even tomatoes. We have a tiny space in front of our small house to grow some. I even tried the mongo experiment of my boys, but all to no avail.
