Read this blog ! Practice your English! Come on ( venga ya)!. No deadlines (fechas tope). No exams. It's just a fun way to learn the language.
Spring is here. It's time to get outdoors! Plant something in a flower pot on your terrace or in the garden of your townhouse or ground-floor apartment. You may be lucky and have an expert in the family, an uncle or grandparent who can plant it with you in the family vegetable patch in your hometown. It's time to get back to our roots in our dying agricultural society. Plant some seeds and watch them grow.
Once again many members of the UEM community are doing just that. And some of them are impressed with their own gardening ability. Remember when you were a child and you planted green beans by the classroom window? They grew, didn't they? "Look ! Look! " And every day they'd grow a little more. Why haven't you tried growing anything since then? Last year's Giant Pumpkins produced seeds which have been distributed on campus for those interested in tryng their hand at Giant Pumpkin farming. This is the 9th year we've sponsored this GIANT PUMPKIN CONTEST. It's been a learning experience for most of us in the academic community.
This year the pumpkin I brought in from Soria was the biggest at 34 kilos 700 grams. However the largest pumpkin to date was grown right here in Villaviciosa de Odon. It weighed in at 53 kilos 800 grams.
This is the first photo to come in this year. It's from Dani Gomez. Look at what his seeds produced in just a couple of weeks !
