English Diary ガーデニングが好きな理由 20220421 #2-70
Hello everyone, thank you for coming back. This is Nomadonomado English diary for the 21st of April 2022. I am talking from England and the local time is now 8 in the morning.
Yesterday I did some gardening to help my mother-in-law. She has a decent space for growing vegetables in her garden. I helped her do weeding and turn over the soil so that she can plant vegetables or put the seed in.
The ground was dry and solid. So it was hard work to turn it over. I haven’t finished it yet, but I had most of the vegetable patch done.
I love gardening. My husband and I grow lots of vegetables and flowers in Canada as well. I like gardening because it’s relaxing and inspiring.
When you’re touching the soil, you can feel it’s so comfortable and just watching something growing in your garden gives you a nice feeling.
Gardening is hard work, but you also enjoy the crops after all of your hard work. It is also a good exercise. I don’t like doing exercise much such as running or walking, but I like working in the garden.
There are lots of jobs to do in a garden and sometimes you can do it on autopilot. Doing something on autopilot means you don’t have to think about anything, just you can continue doing simple work without thinking, you can do it almost automatically. It’s like a weeding. Once you have started weeding you don’t have to think about it too much, you don’t have to use your brain too much for continuing it. All you need to do is just to keep doing it.
You have so much space to think about something else while you are weeding. When I am weeding I think about all kinds of things like the future, or life etc. Sometimes I can get some inspiration or ideas while I am working in the garden. It’s almost therapeutic. That’s why I like gardening.
Today I’d like to finish weeding for the rest of the garden and one of my nephews in law will come to have lunch together. I don’t know where they are planning to go to have lunch, but I’m sure it will be fun.
Alright, that’s all for now. Thank you for listening again as usual. I am happy to receive your comments, feedback or questions. Also, don’t forget to visit my website where you may find the English script for today’s episode. Thank you again. I will be back to you soon. Until then, goodbye.
