A few conversations between me and my grandfather today:
Me: I have a little plan to sow vegetable seeds and sell them in small quantities. Is it worth it for me to do this? Suppose I only sell saplings to anyone who wants to buy. What is your opinion?
Grandfather: For me, your opinion and ideas are okay. But it takes a long time and proper care to do such a thing. This is because, in any crop it requires cost, observation, and proper care of the crop. We cannot take such things lightly.
Me: That’s right. Because most of the crops we plant take a long time to wait for the tree to grow and can produce fruit.
Grandfather: Yes, that’s right. It is like something that happens in our lives. Sometimes we have to wait and be patient for something to succeed. And something that success also does not come suddenly, and requires effort to get it.
Me: It’s right. I will listen to your advice and do my best for my cultivation.
Grandfather: In that case. What do you say you start this project with a seed of red hot chilli seeds. Later I will give it to you for you to sow the seeds.
Me: Alright. I will try to plant the seed and tell you when it starts to grow.
Grandfather: (After a few minutes he took the seed and gave it to me). This is an old red hot chilli and the seeds can be taken for nursery.
Me: Thank you for the red hot chilli seeds.
Among the tips given to me from my grandfather to plant these seeds are:
1) The seeds that have been dissolved are soaked in salt water for 5 minutes.
2) After that, strain the seeds and place the seeds on a tray.
3) After that, dry in the sun for 30 minutes or 40 minutes for drying.
4) After the seeds are dry. It is ready to be sown.
This is the short conversation between me and my grandfather related knowledge in the activity of planting or nursery red hot chili. My grandfather is an experienced person in the field of agriculture and maybe I need to learn more about agriculture from him.
That’s all for today.
