    Another natural disaster happened today.

    A 6.9 magnitude earthquake hit Qinghai in China at 7:49 am local time (7:49 pm ET Tuesday).

    The epicenter was about 150 miles (240 kilometer) northwest of Qamdo, Tibet.

    There were strong aftershocks of magnitude 5.2 and 5.3 about half an hour of the quake.

    Most houses were made of wood with earthen walls in the area.

    A lot of houses and other buildings collapsed.

    At least 300 people were killed and 8000 were injured.

    Many others were still buried under the debris.

    This place is in the mountains and far from the big cities.

    How To Make Roselle Juice

    This is how we make our yummy roselle juice from my own roselle plants:

    • First we need to plant the roselle from roselle seeds.

      Small roselle plant

    • Then we need to wait for a few months until it grow bigger and bigger.

    • After a few month, the roselle starts to have flowers.

    • Later they become fruits.

      My roselle plant with lots of fruit

    • Pluck the ripe fruits.

      Roselle fruits from one of my roselle plants

    • Wash them until clean.

    • Let them dry.

      Washed roselle fruits

    • Cut them into small pieces.

    • Put them in a pot.

    • Add water and sugar.

      Boil the roselle pieces

    • Boil them.

    • Blend the roselle pieces.

    I love roselle juice very much.

    Roselle juice-looks yummy and very healthy too

    It is better to make our own roselle juice because some people add artificial colouring, artificial flavouring and preservatives to the juice that they sell in supermarkets.

    Homemade roselle juice from my own plants is very tasty and rich in vitamin C.

    It is a healthy drink.

    So I have to plant more roselle 🙂

    Planting our own fruits and vegetables is good.
