Tree planting and growing - an earth friendly and joyful task

A wee bit of
an avocado plant to a now grown one:-) right in the middle of our backyard.

My humble contribution to earth day is attested by these photos of fruit trees as we
ll as plants I was able to grow in our backyard, starting almost six years ago.

There's the jackfruit tree, photo of which is at the left above this line. Then the next is my favorite forget-me not flower plant. Makes me feel like a real mother plant Mom whenever I prune her unwieldy leaves. Then there's our squash plant, where we are now able to harvest its flowers playing its nutritious role everytime we prepare our green salad recipe.

Then at the corner of the yard, two other avocado plants, now also fully grown but taller than what we have in the middle of the yard.

It feels lovely to see them plants grow each day, pruning and watering them just like you 'do' for a child.

Happy Earth Day! Better Late than never.

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
