Plants: The Malagos Gems
Filipinos are known for our resilience and creativity. Even with the onset of the pandemic, these qualities were the ones especially prevailing. The number of coronavirus cases in the country is rising by the day. It has not been slowing down. Every day, we are recording thousands of new cases. This is why now more than ever, we have to be extra careful. We do what we can to get by. In the first few months, many of us engaged in baking and cooking our favorites at home. This led to most of us selling our goods online. From this, the Davao Barter Community emerged. People were then engaged in bartering their pre-loved items to much-needed grocery supplies. These initiatives, in one way or another, is a subtle way of helping one another. From a mother who is willing to barter her son’s used crib for a box of milk even all the way to a daughter selling desserts online for her father’s operation, each that happened the past few months was that of a bayanihan among us.
These days, the latest craze has unfolded: the plant craze. The Malagos Homegrown Produce, a trusted Davao online grocery and delivery, budded last March and has been continuously expanding our products and services for your safety and convenience. To make sure you can cook any gourmet dishes you want at home, we introduced the meal kits. To help make groceries safer and faster, we offered fresh homegrown produce online. And today, as we have always said: your safety is our utmost priority. Thus, in order for you to safely enjoy gardening outdoors, the Malagos Homegrown Produce’s new products have just rolled out: the first batch of our ornamental plants fresh from the gardens of Malagos! One you would not want to miss is the 1.5 feet Ficus Lyrata (Fiddle Leaf) for only Php. 2,000.00 and so much more. In the past few months, we have been so focused on others that it is a relief to see that more and more people are doing something for themselves today. Growing your own garden is a fun hobby that is equally beneficial to one’s health:
Gardening helps boost your mood. A study in the Netherlands, cited by CNN, suggests that gardening fights stress even better than other hobbies. Participants completed a stressful task and were then told to read inside or go outdoors and garden for 30 minutes. The gardening group reported better moods afterward, and their blood tests showed lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol. People strive through routines and the onset of the pandemic severely altered everyday life as we know it. The way we tend to our garden and watch each plant bloom is one way to boost our tired souls.
Gardening can be a great exercise. You may not think of it that much but you are actually giving your body favor through gardening! All those lifting, shoveling, and raking you had to do in order to keep your garden clean is one way to move all those muscles after staying at home for months.
Growing what you eat is absolutely healthy. Aside from the ornamental plants, the Malagos Homegrown Produce also has potted herbs available. With this, you can easily grow the spices and mints you need for your dishes. Simply head out to your garden, pick up all the au natural ingredients you need, and voila! A healthy dish is served for you and the family.
