Kathirikkai..Vendakkai..thakkaaali..

*Acts cool and starts blogging as if she had been blogging without any break*

One of our friend had a super cool wedding recently in his own garden, distributing plants , seeds and lot of green ideas as gifts. We had got tomato, brinjal and ladies’ finger seeds.

I had some methi seeds and coriander seeds at home.We decided to start a min garden and headed to a plant nursery. It was a huge one with acres and acres of plants outside the city. Seeing all the plants, immediately my daughter shouted ” Wow..Zooo, Have we come to a Zoo?” 🙄

We got 3 4 basic pots and some organic manure and soil mix. Volt had super fun mixing the soil and tried real hard to sprinkle water. It went all over the place except the pot.

Fast forward two weeks. Now we have baby plants peeking out curiously. Every morning and evening Volt and I “sprinkle” water. She on me and I on the plants.

She knows the order of the pots and today morning I saw her introducing all the plants to her grandpa.

“This is thakkali (tomato)”

“This is vendekkai (ladies finger)”

“This is kathirikkai (brinjal)”

“This is Geetha” *pointing at methi /coriander*

Fil: Aaaan?? 😯

Me: Keerai Keerai (Greens)

Will you judge me if I tell you that I spoke and sang to them when I was worried after a week of sowing the seeds that nothing came out. 😀
