Jebel Sifah Resort

view from my room

My recent trip to Jebel Sifah Resort, with some friends and family turned out to be a wonderful getaway… The drive to this paradise was beautiful, serene and breathtaking views of mountains, roads and the sea. The resort is beautifully designed, well maintained, spread out and lies near the beach and has a beautiful view of the marina. What I loved about the resort was the calm soothing and earthy texture of the resort. And I would recommend staying for at least 2 nights if you want to explore the cruise and the beach. It’s also hub for yacht cruising, recreational boating and aqua sports. The rooms were good and spacious, friendly staff, well maintained pool and good food.

The only trouble we had in reaching this place was there was no proper signpost indicating the location of the resort. We had to drive around a bit to locate. Other than this our stay there was pleasant and looking forward to staying here again!!

My Edible Garden

I read somewhere “Gardening is perhaps the most common and shared experience of nature”... how true!!
In the hope for the weather to get better and the heat to drop, I started growing my own patch of edible garden. Last year my harvest was good and I remembered the distinct flavour of my home grown vegetables... very different from the ones you purchase from supermarket. Its fun growing your own vegetables, relieves stress, therapeutic and it’s a great way to spend some outdoor quality time with my daughter.

 For the time being I have planted beans, spinach, green chillie, tomatoes, lady’s finger, brinjal and basil and I hope to add more. It’s best to start small and make sure you get sun, plenty of water and good quality soil. Space is never a constraint for growing your own vegetable garden. You can grow it in your own balcony, windowsill or terrace.
Imagine picking fresh salad leaves from your garden! Are you ready to have an edible garden of your own?
