How will you portray “Experimental”? Will it be the fresh lemon-cranberry scones you whipped up, tired of the usual blueberry muffins? Will it be a close-up of the piano where you just composed an original in a key new to you? Will it be capturing a subject using varying compositions or photographic techniques?
I have really tried my hand at cooking in past few months, and I can come up with lots of photos of different dishes. But I also tried something else, that really makes me proud. 🙂
I started gardening, and I have begun to grow plants that I can use daily. Although I am yet unable to consume the fruits of most of the plants, I am happy about the whole process and the experimental angle that it has.
One of my Instagram friends suggested me to grow Pudina, i.e. Mint. They are really easy to grow. When we buy some mint stems, we have to pluck the leaves in such a way that some part of the leaves’ stem remains on the main stem. And then we just have to insert the main stem in soil and place it where it can get enough sunlight and water it appropriately. In few days, new leaves will start growing from the sub-stems.
When I tried it the first time, I plucked the entire leaf. So there was no scope for the new leaf to grow. You see the experimental angle here? But next time I corrected my mistake. And also, instead of growing them in the soil, I decided to grow them in water!
Mint plants at my home
I have already grown Methi, i.e. Fenugreek once. At that time my mother in law had just spread some seeds in the soil, and within one week or so, there were already leaves coming out from them. I couldn’t believe that it is so easy to grow Methi at home! I decided to do it again. But I was waiting for a container with more length and breadth. And I found one!
Do you also have a garden? What plants do have there? Can you please suggest me some small plants in the cold atmosphere?
