Celebs Who Can Harvest Fruits & Vegetables In Their Own Garden
With the on-going enhanced community quarantine in the major parts of the country, many people are having a hard time in purchasing fresh products such as fruits and vegetables.
This is due to the limited movement of the people which also affected the supply, transport, and prices of some products in the markets and grocery stores. However, this is not a problem for those who have their own garden or grow some fruits and veggies in their backyard.
Take it from these celebrities who are now harvesting fresh produce straight from their own garden.
“Kahit anong mangyari, meron kang madudukot na pagkain,”
the actress proudly shared.
The 43-year-old celebrity mom began posting on her Instagram account photos of her organic vegetables like radish, sugar beets, carrots and fennel since April last year.
Based on her previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), she decided to turn into a mini garden her backyard in Silang, Cavite, for the means of “food security.”
“Sana, kung maaari, kung meron tayong maski maliit na lupa lang na puwede nating pagtaniman ng gulay, dapat nagtatanim tayo ng ating sariling gulay…”
“Knowing that I’m able to produce something out of dirt, that I can make food for the family or the challenge of it because it’s not easy, now I understand, I have this high respect for farmers, especially organic farmers, because organic farming is very difficult.”
Team Kramer (Doug and Cheska Garcia-Kramer)
This celebrity couple also has a vegetable garden in their house. But unlike the previous celebrity that we featured, they decided to grow vegetables in pots or containers.
In one of the recent IG posts of this celebrity mom-of-three, she showed their “harvest list,” which includes vegetables that can grow in a short span of time.
Cheska captioned her post:
“Kendra along with yaya Josie was able to harvest quite a number of vegetables in our little garden.
“We started planting more again these past few days and they are growing pretty quickly and looking very healthy.
“Our Harvest list: . Onion Leaks . Baby carrots . Turmeric . Ginger . Tomatoes . String beans . Bell Pepper . Green sili . Pod of the moringa . Monggo (not in photo) . Eggplants . Sigarilyas . Sponge gourd.”
“It doesn’t take much to grow these vegetables. If space is your concern there are vegetables that also grow well in pots or in containers.
“You can search online and get pointers on how to start growing your own organic vegetables and how to care for them. That is how I started…”
“Wais Na Misis” of Chito Miranda, vocalist of the band Parokya ni Edgar showed that gardening is definitely part of her daily life in Alfonso, Cavite.
In an Instagram post of Neri last March 15, the first day of the community quarantine she proudly shared how she and her mother, Mommy Lita, spend their usual day harvesting vegetables in their garden.
“Buti na lang at di kami gala ng nanay ko at nag-eenjoy lang sa bahay at mag-garden,” part of her caption read.
Another celebrity mom who has a garden in her house in Bulacan is Julia Barretto’s mom, Marjorie. She grows veggies like okra and some fruit-bearing trees.
38-year-old celebrity stylist and fashion editor-at-large began her mini garden project in February 2020, together with her son Xavi. This is also to ensure that their family can “eat healthier.”
Zsa Zsa Padilla
Kapamilya singer and actress Zsa Zsa Padilla has a big beautiful farm in Casa Esperanza, Lucban, Quezon, where she harvests eggplants, kale, french radish, Chinese kailan, and many more.
The Kapamilya actor showed his probinsyano side when he posted some photos last year on his Instagram account with the caption, “Kaisa magkalat magtanim po tayo at gawing kapakipakinabang ang kapaligiran!”
In this farm located in his Quezon City mansion, he planted some mango trees and most of the vegetables mentioned in the song “Bahay Kubo.”
