The tuyo spaghetti is one great dish. Though it’s meticulous to make, it’s quite worthy.
I am a huge fan of home gardening. In fact, I used to like home gardening fan pages, watch Youtube videos, and read lots of e-books so I can get tips and techniques to grow my own food.
So far, I have successfully grown vegetables like tomatoes, swamp cabbage (kangkong), sweet potatoes, and many more.
I also have grown mulberry, strawberry, and my favorite, dragon fruit. If you don’t want to believe that I have dragon fruit, you can check the picture below.
I’m most successful in growing tomatoes. Just recently, I harvested some. Just like any home gardeners, my joy was overflowing and I can’t help but share. After showing my produce to my sister, she immediately thought of a great idea: she’ll cook tuyo spaghetti.
