A Handy Farming Trick from Local Farmer
Sometimes we are so detached with nature that we do not realize that nature is there for us and not against us. The earth is filled with elements that naturally helps every microorganisms to survive easily.
One handy trick to make sure plants in our garden grow healthily is to make sure we plant during the right time.
In country with tropical weather like Indonesia, we have only 2 seasons. The dry and rainy season. A smart time to plant the ready-to-transplant plants is the end of the rainy season. End of rainy season allow young plants to get sufficient water and also not too much rainwater that it will damage delicate and young plants. This season has also not so harsh sunlight that it will cause stress to young plants. This pattern of nature also allows less work on our part to regularly water the plants and gives us more time on our hands.
Last but not least, do not forget to use the rainy season as an indication for us to sit back and think about what we want to plant in our garden and then start planting seeds in nursery or indoor. By the end of the rainy season, we will be ready to plant our desired plants and welcome the dry season with bountiful harvest!
