Tito Pino never forgets to bring us a bagful of lettuce grown by hydroponics every time he visits. Hydroponics is one technique of growing lettuce in his home in Cavite.
I was amazed to learn first time that lettuce can be grown via a soilless culture. As I surfed through the internet, I learned that hydroponics is only a subset of a soilless culture, the latter having a broader scope, and some culture do not use the mineral nutrient solutions used in hydroponics.
I am happy for Tito Pino to have a form of relaxation, taking care of his lettuce plants, that could give pleasure to him. I have a different one in mind when I grow to be his age that does not involve plants (because I do not have a green thumb). I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can be able to do what I wanted when it’s time to relax.
