Veggie Corner : Harvest and Preparation

Growing food in your space not only gives you fresh and chemical free harvest ,but is much more enriched with nutrients and taste much better then the store bought ones.

Winter season in our climate gives opportunity to easily grow bountiful harvest in your available space without deploying any special efforts .

It gives a self pride to pluck your hand grown vegetables and gives regular exercise to your body.

My veggies are all set to pluck giving aroma to different  cuisines

            French beans are so easy to grow and germinate and they give early harvest too


Radish is one winter vegetable that is so tasteful with high nutrient content ,It takes just a more than month to grow them from seed                                                                                                

                                                       Radishes are all set to dig out

Another unique flavored bean contrary to French beans is Labalab Beans popularly known as (Semphali or Balor) in our region

Most loved vegetable which comes in Seed pods i.e. Peas

                                                          A Pea flower rising with dawn

Potatoes are grown for bounty harvest from single potato 

Potatoes in Poly bags 

Tomatoes to give tangy flavor

                                                       Green Chillies to spice up cuisine

Carrots grown in earthen pots

Fresh taste of green leafy vegetables   can rejuvenate your body




Preparation And Plantation                                                                                                          

Winter vegetables does not require much space to grow .We can use old containers ,earthen pots ,old oil cans anything tangibles that are wide in size .If you have barren land u can easily sow seeds of Carrots,Radish,green leafy vegetables ,peas dividing sections for each vegetable .
Soil preparation for planting vegetables in containers

For soil preparation u need porous soil u'll require                                                                                 
- Garden soil, 60%                                                                                                                                      
- River sand or bajri  30%                                                                                                                           
- Organic manure    10%                                                                                                                            
Plantation :
Green leafy vegetables like Fenugreek,Spinach,coriander and others are directly sown in places or even in shallow planters since they have small roots.                                                                        

Carrots ,Radish,beetroot,turnip and all other edible root vegetables require deep containers to       propagate itself and are sown directly .                                                                                   

Peas,Beans,Tomatoes,Eggplant,Green chilli,capsicum and alike vegetables can be sown at a place then further transplanted according to your space within germination.                                            

In next post I 'll discuss how to grow potato easily in poly bags and get bounty harvest.

Happy Gardening .
