Becoming Farmer

Experience
The first thing I grew was bell chilli ( dalle khursani) in 2014. My mother sowed bell chillies seed during her visit to my work station in Charikot. As those seed grew day by day, the need of transplanting to another pot was necessary. So, I managed to collect some soil from the surrounding and planted those seedling. i used my vegetable waste for the plant nutrients. The chillies grew so well that I got good harvest. That little success encouraged me towards growing vegetables and always had a dream of planting other vegetables.

Plot
My mother had been growing vegetables in one ropani of land near our house at Swoyambhu. she planted asparagus,corns, garlic, turmeric, green leafy vegetables( rayo, tori, choisom etc) and beans. Before one year, she left for australia where my brothers live. so the responsibility of maintaining the land came to me. First, I was so worried as I had never been into growing veggies.

Basics
The only basic thing I knew for taking care of plants was that to remove unnecessary weeds. The important vegetable in that garden is asparagus. It is perennial plant so,  the weeds should be removed time and again. I couldn't take care of corns so they turned into yellow plants. I took care of strawberries so the harvesting was quiet good. My son's organic fruit supplement is fulfilled with strawberries. I was happy. I learned to harvest garlic. The three months went so quickly and mother returned back.

This year
This year, my mom went to australia again and for long time. the responsibility is for longer time. so i was worried and was determined to do something new in the garden. With the help of father, I managed to plant some cucumber, pumpkin, corn, snake beans, bitter brinjal (bihi). 

Time
I generally work 2 hours in the evening, mostly 5-7 pm. the temperature is good at that time. the weeding takes most of the time.

Google help
I was watching all the plants closely all the time. The cucumbers were one of them. Though the sapling sprout on the ground, the development was not good. the leaves of the cucumber plants were turning white. this was giving me a tension so i googled about problem. it said that the calcium deficiency is the cause behind it. so, I burnt some paper and newspaper to get some ashes which contain calcium, phosphorus and other minerals. I put the ashes on those cucumbers. suddenly, the next day the height of the plant grew tremendously.  I was so happy and dreamt of tiny cucumbers growing. After that i searched google for everything. like removing weeds, gardening tips etc.

The joy of becoming farmer moment
The cucumbers bloomed and the tiny cucumbers came to shape. one day, i was watching every node of the cucumbers so carefully and suddenly there it was' Eureka ! a medium size cucumber '. behind the leaves. I was so so happy. The happiness can't be defined in words. my first cucumber. after the full growth, i couldn't pick. the love for my cucumber restricted to pick. after some attempt, i had to pick as it was going to mature soon. But the memories of growing has remained so fresh in my mind and yes i have pictures for refreshing my memories.

Other vegetables

Asparagus:
 I pick 5-10 sticks every day.

Green leafy vegetables grows time to time. radish ( gante mula), latte, choisum, nettle (sisnu) are there which is enough for my family. 

tomatoes: they grew itself and are fruiting right now

snake beans are there and three harvest has been already done.

Bitter brinjal ( Bihi) are flowering and i hope to get a good harvest soon. there are almost about 20 plants in the garden.

strawberries: 8-10 fruits per day.

घट्ना १
सिम सिम पानी परिरहेको छ।  छाता  ओडेर म छोराको स्कूल बस कुरिरहेको छु।  त्यसै बेला एक पाको महिला छिटो छिटो आइपुग्छीन।  छाता नभएकोले छिटो छिटो गाडी चड्न खोज्छिन।  तर उनको गन्तब्यको गाडी आउँदैन। सायद नेपाली भाषा आउँदैन उनलाई त्यसैले गलत गाडी मा चढ्दै  वोर्लिदै गर्छिन।

घट्ना २
एउटा स्कूल बस आउँछ।  एउटा सानी नानी ८ -१० वर्षा को गाड़ी बाट वोर्लिनछिन।  पारी पट्टी उनको आमा ब्यापारमा ब्यस्त होला।  एता बाट त्यो नानी ले बोलाएको सुन्दिनन।  म बाटो काटन मदद गर्छु।  उ कुदेर आमाको मा जान्छे।

बाटो

बाटोमा हिड्दै थिएँ
सही बाटोमा
गन्तब्य पुग्ने बाटोमा
तर बाटो छुटेछ 
कती खेर र  कसरी  छुट्यो
 पत्तै भएन 
अब कुन बाटो हिंड्ने
 हिडिरहेको बाटोको  पनि ठेगान भएन।

लाखे

म : 'यो लाखे लाई पैसा दिनु न '
आमा : ' कती चोटि दिइ सके तर कहिल्यै राम्रो मुकुन्डो  किन्ने होइन  '

अनी लाखे र आमाको बाल्यकालको कथा सुरु हुन्छ

हरेक जनै पुर्णिमा मा गाई जात्रा - लाखे, गाउं हुँदै पर देवी खोलामा सेलाउन पुग्थ्यो । हरेक ठुला बाडाको   घरमा पैसा उठाउने र खाजा खाने काम हुन्थ्यो । लाखे सँगै मारुनी पनि हुन्थ्यो । लाखे थाके पछी मारुनी नाच्ने गर्थ्यो ।
 तरुनी , तन्नेरी जती सबै टाढा को बजार जान्थे भने बच्चा र बुढा  बुढी हरु चै गाउ कै लाखे हेरेर दाङग पर्थे ।

पल्लो गाउमा नेवारी बस्ती थियो । उनिहरु माटो को भाडा बनाउथे र कृषि पनि गर्थे । गाई जत्रा तेही बाट सुरु हुन्थ्यो । अनी सँग सँगै लाखे पनि । हामी बच्चाहरु तेही जान्थ्यौ । सुरु भए देखी न सेलाए सम्म हामी पछी पछी लाग्थ्यौ  ।

लाखे अग्लो थियो । साधारण मनिस भन्दा अग्लो । आकाश नै छुने गरी नाच्थ्यो । टाउको हल्लाउदै नाच्थ्यो । ठुलो मकुन्डो र लामो अनी  राम्रो जामा लगाएको हुन्थ्यो ।

अघिल्लो दिन  रात परेपछी लाखे आफ्नो गाउ फर्किन्थ्यो । हामी हाम्रो घर । भोली पल्ट बिहान भुइगल बाट लाखे कहिले आउछ भनेर बाटो हेर्थ्यौ । लाखे आउथ्यो नाच्थ्यो अनी जान्थ्यो । अघिल्लो दिन हाम्रो घरमा आउन नभ्एर हाम्रो घरमा दोस्रो दिन आउथ्यो ।

त्यसपछी गाउ नै  लाखेमय हुन्थ्यो। बारीको  मकैको जुङगा जती  सबै टाउकोमा हुन्थ्यो । त्यस पछी ....

ढंग ढंग कुटी  ढंग ढंग...ढंग ढंग कुटी  ढंग ढंग.... ढंग ढंग कुटी  ढंग ढंग....

शनिबारको दिन बिहानी पख

बिहानै उठेर टि यू गेट पुग्दा सवा सात बजि सकेको थियो । दिन सफा थियो साथै मन खुशी थियो । अचेल धेरै घुम्न न निस्किने प्रण गरेको छु । घुम्ने पनि नसा रहेछ । नसा नलागेकै राम्रो ।
आज काम बिशेष छ । पानी परेको परेकै छ । बाटो हिलाम्ने छ । तै पनि नगइ नहुने छ ।

श्रीमानको मूड अली खराब छ आज किनकी बाटो हिलाम्ने र लामो छ । म गफमा भुलाउदै छु र बाटो छोट्याउने  प्रयास गर्दै छु । बाटो नराम्रो भए पनि तल तिरको धान बारी क्या राम्रो छ ।

चियो सुरुप्प पियौ  अनी फेरी लाग्यौ  गन्तब्य  तिर ।











काम सकियो अनी फेरी उही धुलौटे काठमाडौं आइपुगियो- शनिबारको दिन बेलुकी  पख
