Urban Gardening: Plant Calendar

urban gardening, plant calendar, bureau of plant idustry, vegetable garden, urban planting, gardening, farming

Before the community quarantine took effect in our country, I already started a small garden at home.


I planted sitaw, ampalaya, cucumbers, okra, lettuce, and others.


In my 7-months of planting vegetable experience, some are quite difficult to grow in a particular month. For example, I couldn’t grow tomatoes last June. The seeds will germinate but as soon as I transferred the seedlings, the stem rots and suddenly the plant dies.


With this, I googled a plant calendar found out that tomatoes are not suitable for the said month when I planted it. 


Below is a simple guide on what to vegetable to plant every month. (Photo Source: Bureau of Plant Industry)

Yes, you read it right. Our Kuya is now into crochet na din.

The other night, while we are doing these crochet spray bottle holders.

We told Matthew to return in crocheting and he can earn extra if his projects will be sold in our online shop.

We also told him that this can be his past time while staying at home rather than spending his day in front of a laptop and tablet.

Here he is doing his crochet project at home after having lunch. The photo is taken using the Mi Home Security Camera 360°.

Without hesitation, he asked the hook and yarn.

Of course, he needs to learn first the basics. Mommy already taught him how to hold the yarn and grip the hook and doing chains. 

This time, I instructed him to do the double crochet, single crochet, and slip stitch. These stitches will be used in making the centerpiece project for Matthew.

Once his project is finished, I will post the free pattern in Mom and Dad Crochet which according to Matthew, will be changed to Family Crochet. Bright idea, di ba?

After the centerpiece, he will do a Santa Hat naman daw for him and his soon-to-be baby brother. How sweet.

Here is his short clip doing the crochet.

How about your kids, what are their past time these days?

Samsung AirDresser for Clothing Care


Aminin nyo mga Momshs, nakakapraning ang panahon ngayon. Kung pwede ka maligo ng alcohol gagawin mo. Yung mga damit naman na ginagamit natin sa labas lalo na pagkagaling sa crowded palces like groceries e kulang na lang i-oven mo to make sure there's no germs, bacteria or viruses on it na.

But no worries na mga Momshs, because Samsung introduces AirDresser—an all-new appliance that provides a hassle-free way to keep your clothes, including professional uniforms, sanitized and fresh at all times.

I just hope it's affordable. Anyway, you can check out its sulit features from the Press Release Kit:

Professionals in every industry have uniforms or specific outfits based on the company’s dress code. For doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers, most especially the medical scrubs and lab coats that are worn everyday. These may come in different colors and sizes but it is undeniable that these often get exposed to bacteria.

In treating patients and spending whole days inside the hospital, as well as other frontliners, it is very important to keep uniforms clean and sanitized at all times. Keeping this in mind, Samsung Digital Appliances launches the AirDresser. This latest home innovation uses powerful air and steam to get rid of dust and germs and even sanitizes the clothes, gently dries them, and smoothes wrinkles.

Innovative Features

The AirDresser possesses a handful of features that keep clothes fresh all day, making it always ready to wear. The process starts off with the Jet Air and Air Hangers that release powerful air to remove stubborn dust with only minimal noise and vibration—quiet enough to be placed anywhere inside the home, including the bedroom. Then the JetSteam sanitizes the clothes to get rid of bacteria, viruses, or allergens by infusing high-temperature steam into the fabric. It is the perfect tool for routine sterilization of clothes and many other household items such as linen and soft toys. 

Clothes are then dried using the Heat Pump Drying features which gently dries clothes at a low temperature, minimizing heat damage and shrinkage. The Wrinkle Care smoothes out wrinkles without ironing by using a combination of steam and air to relax the clothes. The AirDresser takes clothes to the next level with the Deodorizing Filter that freshens clothes, by breaking down the particles of odors caused by sweat, tobacco, and food. As a result, it also prevents odor to build-up inside the unit.

Outstanding Benefits

The lifespan of these precious clothes increases as there is less need for frequent washing which can cause damage to the delicate fabric. Fancy clothes, especially intricate and sensitive garments, can also be cared for by the AirDresser—minimizing the need for professional services such as dry cleaning.

It also has a Self-Clean technology that sanitizes the AirDresser’s interior without the use of harsh detergents. This is done by a combination of heat, air, and steam. After 40 cycles, it notifies the users whenever it needs cleaning.

The AirDresser also helps save time when it comes to chores as using the JetSteam for example, takes less time and energy than having to clean clothes with a full wash and dry cycle. Or, repeat outfits confidently without thinking about bad odors or hygiene because of the Jet Air and Air Hangers’ ability to quickly remove dust off of the clothes.

Create a smarter home with modern appliances whose ultimate goal is to make life easier and safely clean.

The AirDresser is retailed at P129,995. Samsung Digital Appliances also has an ongoing Better At Home promo where up to 20% discounts can be availed. This promo runs from June 1 to August 31, 2020.

By the way, Samsung has na on-going Digital Appliances sale. I want a new refrigerator na mas malaki, maybe the side by side one. Our Samsung refrigerator is almost 10 years na kasi and we need also a bigger one once baby #2 comes out.

Let me know kung nakabili kayo ng AirDresser ha? I will let you know naman kapag nakabili ako ng new ref.

Father's Day 2020 Gift Ideas

Photo Source

Five years ago, Father's day falls on the same date as this year - June 21. I also posted some gift ideas for dad's special day like leathers, gadgets, perfumes, wine and liquors, and musical tools.

We all know that buying gifts for Dads, Daddy, Papa, Tatay, Erpat, Pudra, or whatever we want to call them, is quite difficult.

Here are some ideas for every dad.

Disclaimer: These are only my idea.

Electronic Gadgets
There are many innovations in terms of technology today.

A simple bluetooth earphones like the one I got last month can be a good option too. Aside from listening music, I am using this during our teleconference meetings.

If your dad needs an upgrade on their mobile phones, this can the best time to get them one.

For Daddies that are into photography, there are Canon deals at Rakuten that you can choose either new camera body,  an upgrade on their lens, or additional accessories.

Clothing
One of the most common gifts that Daddies received is clothing. This is not limited to polo shirts or trousers only.

You can also check for new slippers, wallets, leathers, or a pair of Converse All-Star sneakers.

Cooking Utensils
Some Daddies loves spending their spare time in the kitchen especially during the community quarantine. Handling them with simple cooking utensil sets, knife sets, or even an oven for them to bake.

For a healthier option, wrapping an Airfyer is a good choice.

Gardening Tools
Many, not only Daddies, are into urban gardening nowadays. Gardening tools and even seeds for their mini-garden will be a good pick.

Whatever gift we have in our mind, what is important is the reason of celebrating this - because of our father.
