As I shared earlier in my post that the soil in my garden is “clay” type, very hard, not fertilize, and a big challenge to grow vegetables and fruits.
However, We are grateful to have such a nice space as garden, our family never give up even though the soil condition is not encouraging.
My father spent his time to change the “clay” soil to “Organic” soil which we bought from nursery.
We are so appreciated and respect of my father’s hard work and also his strong determination.
Besides, we continue to do compost in our garden. We believe the soil condition will be better in one day.
Time is a matter.
Even though, initially the result was not encouraging, my parent never give up, they are so persistent in their effort in taking care of the garden with organic method of farming, no pesticides and no chemical fertilizer.
Yesterday, It was the happiest day for my parent as they reap the fruits of sweet potatoes.
It’s amazing. This is the 1st time we got the sweet potatoes, more than 20 of them.
After more than 2 years of hard work, the soil condition is improving.
This shown us a great example that “If you’ve a will, there is a way.”
The critical points are whether are you persistent, are you easily give up, are you patient enough to wait for the result?
Think about it!
It’s so similar to our practice in spiritual path, there is no shortcut, be diligent and walk the path by yourself.
Do not give up easily even though we are facing a big challenges!
Remember that the bad soil condition can change after a period of time.
We can purify ourselves too.
I believe if we human beings keep our self-confidence and determination and use wisdom properly, I think we have the ability to overcome problems.
