My trip to the farm

Hello friends,

I am going to share with you my exciting experience of my visit to the farm. Recently, my sister and I and our family friends, went to an organic farm. This place is called “Urban gardening”. It is in Vengal, which is about 100 km from Chennai. We went in a bus. It took a long time to reach there. I was excited to see the farm and the different kind of plants. We were welcomed by the owner of the farm and he took us around. This organic farm was divided into sections. He told us that each plant has to be planted in a section. He taught us how to pluck ladies fingers. It had to be cut off with a sickle in one go. We also got to taste the lady finger raw. And then, we went to the corn field. My friend, my sister and I ran around and played together in the corn field. To pluck a corn, we need to twist and pull it carefully. Then we saw flat beans, which also needs to be twisted and pulled out. Finally we saw groundnuts and watermelon…Yummy! It was fun to pluck the groundnuts, as we had to pull out the whole plant. Finally, went to the watermelon patch and pulled out huge watermelon. We also ate the watermelon. After seeing all these plants, we got into the bus and came back home. I enjoyed my trip to the farm and if I get a chance to visit the farm again, I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
