My mother did some gardening today. She cleaned and harvested the purple yams I planted a long time ago. They were about a kilo each now, totaling to about 10 kilos. The final fate of these root crops will most likely be a kakanin (kalamay) which my mother will be giving away for the holidays.

Funny how when I planted them, I diddn’t even think they’d grow and amount to anything of value.

I guess we are so much like these purple yams, we get planted where we are, but it takes time for us to grow needing all the help we can get but eventually we can stand on our own and eventually bloom and attain our full potentials.
