When I was in Chile I met a guy from Germany who moved there. He started his own hostel there and in his huge garden he cultivates his own vegetables. He offered his guests to have dinner at his hostel. All the ingredients for that dinner were from his garden.
I found that very impressing. The dinner was fantastic. But his wife told us that it was a lot of work and she does not do anything else than to cultivate that garden.
I decided not to start an own, new garden because I sadly do not have a lot of time. After this winter my mother needed someone who helped her with the garden. So this was a good chance to help her. First I pulled out weeds and I tilled the earth.
Then I bought some plants like strawberries and spices like sage and implanted it. Now I hope that they will grow and my mother will like them when they are ready to be reaped.
