I am sure it’s not just me but for a zillion technical nerds out there who are witnessing this change of lifestyle, that’s influencing their physical and mental health. Like always, my mind wandered to Google and I started brainstorming on doing something creative and fun that can exert my physical and mental strength simultaneously. As always, Google paved way to the best possible answer Gardening!
