Over the last 18 months, we have found ourselves spending extensive hours at home thanks to the pandemic. During this time, many turned to gardening as a hobby and for a sense of comfort. As a result, kitchen gardens soon became a trend and we are not complaining. And it looks like actress Preity Zinta too is no stranger to the joy and charm of a home garden. In a recent post, the Bollywood actress shared with us a video of herself picking small juicy strawberries from her garden. Preity Zinta told us that during the lockdown, her mother helped her plant herbs, fruit shrubs and vegetables in her backyard.
In the same post, Preity Zinta wrote, “Now, I have strawberries, oranges, peaches, guavas, tomatoes, green & red peppers, green and red chillies, eggplant, mint, basil and lemon growing around the house. I am so proud of our little organic home garden.” Take a look at the post she shared:
I cannot explain how excited I am to see fruits & vegetables grow in our backyard. Mom was with me during the lockdown last year & we planted all sorts of herbs, fruit & veggies. pic.twitter.com/9MjH8oBJm6
