My Edible Garden

I read somewhere “Gardening is perhaps the most common and shared experience of nature”... how true!!
In the hope for the weather to get better and the heat to drop, I started growing my own patch of edible garden. Last year my harvest was good and I remembered the distinct flavour of my home grown vegetables... very different from the ones you purchase from supermarket. Its fun growing your own vegetables, relieves stress, therapeutic and it’s a great way to spend some outdoor quality time with my daughter.

 For the time being I have planted beans, spinach, green chillie, tomatoes, lady’s finger, brinjal and basil and I hope to add more. It’s best to start small and make sure you get sun, plenty of water and good quality soil. Space is never a constraint for growing your own vegetable garden. You can grow it in your own balcony, windowsill or terrace.
Imagine picking fresh salad leaves from your garden! Are you ready to have an edible garden of your own?
