Estimados lectores, agradecido con su visita a este blog de un soñador y enamorado de su familia y de la naturaleza.

Dear readers, grateful for your visit to this blog of a dreamer and lover of his family and nature.

Les cuento que desde siempre me ha gustado sembrar y cuidar las plantas. Cuando aún era un niño, me ponía a ayudar a mi amada madre limpiando y regando el jardín, así como también le hacía el mantenimiento a las diferentes plantas que teníamos, lo que implicaba sacarlas de sus materos y colocarlas en otros más grandes cuando ya habían crecido; algunas veces sólo tenía que cortarles las raíces y ponerle abono.

I tell you that I have always liked to plant and take care of plants. When I was still a child, I used to help my beloved mother by cleaning and watering the garden, as well as maintaining the different plants we had, which meant taking them out of their mothers and putting them in bigger ones when they had grown; sometimes I only had to cut the roots and put in some fertilizer.

Cuidaba del jardín sin que me lo pidieran, era algo natural que me llenaba de energía positiva, porque es gratificante ver como una semilla que sembraste se convierte en planta y da frutos ó cuando una pequeña planta crece y se llena de flores, y lo que más disfrutaba, era cuando algunos fines de semana salíamos todos a buscar abono en las llanuras, a las afueras de nuestro pueblito e invitábamos a mi amada abuelita Tomasa, que Dios la tenga en su gloria.

I took care of the garden without being asked, it was something natural that filled me with positive energy, because it is gratifying to see how a seed you sowed becomes a plant and bears fruit or when a small plant grows and fills with flowers, and what I enjoyed most, was when some weekends we all went out to look for fertilizer on the plains, outside our little town and invited my beloved grandmother Tomasa, God rest her soul.

Aprovechábamos esas ocasiones para pescar, eran días de campo espectaculares. Al llegar el mediodía, nos disponíamos a comer, algunas veces preparábamos lo que habíamos pescado, con arepas que hacíamos a la leña, y otras mi madre llevaba preparada una gran bandeja de espaguetis con atún o carne molida, que todos comíamos con gran gusto.

We used to take advantage of those occasions to fish, they were spectacular field days. When midday came, we would get ready to eat, sometimes we would prepare what we had caught, with arepas that we made with firewood, and other times my mother would take a big tray of spaghetti with tuna or ground meat, which we all ate with great pleasure.

Mi padre tenía una camioneta tipo pickup, donde colocábamos los sacos de excremento de burros y/o caballos, que al llegar a casa lo poníamos en un rincón del patio y durante varios días le echábamos agua para sacarle lo más que podíamos los restos de orina, para así poderlos utilizar como abono natural en nuestras plantas. Cuando lográbamos conseguir suficiente, vendíamos algunos sacos, lo que era una entrada extra en nuestro hogar, que generalmente lo utilizábamos para comprar meriendas.

My father had a pickup truck, where we would place the bags of donkey and/or horse excrement, which when we got home we would put in a corner of the patio and for several days we would pour water on it to get out as much of the urine as possible, so that we could use it as natural fertilizer for our plants. When we managed to get enough, we sold some sacks, which was an extra income in our home, which we usually used to buy snacks.

Eran tiempos en los que no eran peligroso ir de campo, cuanto me gustaría que hoy se pudiese hacer, poder disfrutar esa experiencia con mis hijos... mirarlos pescar.

There were times when it wasn't dangerous to go to the country, how much I wish it could be done today, to be able to enjoy that experience with my children... to watch them fish.

Mi padre, por su trabajo, conocía casi todos los sitios donde podíamos ir a pescar y recolectar el “abono”, generalmente eran lugares cercanos a los sitios donde él trabajaba de lunes a viernes y el fin de semana nos llevaba para pescar. Algunas veces, también invitábamos a vecinos amigos, a los que sus padres autorizaban, para que fueran con nosotros; entonces la pickup se llenaba de adolescentes que iban felices con sus cañas caseras, hechas con ramas de árboles, nylon y anzuelos. La noche previa preparábamos las carnadas, que algunas veces era masa de harina de trigo, la misma con la que se hace el pan; otras veces, llevábamos también sardinitas, que comprábamos en el mercado y la picábamos para poner pequeños pedazos en el anzuelo.

My father, because of his job, knew almost all the places where we could go fishing and collect "compost", generally they were places close to the places where he worked from Monday to Friday and at the weekend he would take us fishing. Sometimes, we also invited friendly neighbors, whom his parents authorized, to go with us; then the pickup was full of teenagers who went happily with their homemade rods, made of tree branches, nylon and hooks. The night before, we would prepare the bait, which sometimes was dough made of wheat flour, the same that is used to make bread; other times, we would also take little sardines, which we would buy in the market and bite them to put small pieces on the hook.

Mi abuelita era feliz pescando, qué alegría verla sacar una guabina (pez de rio) o una sardinita, todos aplaudíamos felices.

My grandmother was happy fishing, what a joy to see her take out a guabina (river fish) or a sardine, we all applauded happily.
