Growing inverted Tomato plant in bottle

 It is always a fun experience to grow your own veggies which are organically grown at your space. I have been growing all varieties of Tomatoes from past many years. This year I tried a very unique way of growing Tomatoes and I was fortunate to succeed in my first attempt. 

I tried growing inverted Tomato plant in a Recyclable Plastic Water Bottle.

This is a old Plastic bottle whose base has been removed to fill the soil mixture 

                                                                         A 1000ml  empty bottle

The base of bottle is removed for filling soil mixture

Tomato seedling inserted from the cap side

                                              And after 2months the first tomatoes appear

                                                 Tomatoes ripened and ready to be harvested

Things to remember growing inverted Tomatoes plants in bottles

- Tomato seedling should be gently inserted in bottle without damaging root system of the plant
- Soil mixture should be light and fertilizer rich so that plant gets its strength and food adequately
- Watering should be done moderately when the plant requires it otherwise the plant will rot eventually.                                                                                                                       

The spring summer transition is always a happy time in the Garden as there is a freshness of leaves and flowers can be felt in the Garden

How to make homemade compost easily

 Compost is an essential ingredient for gardening . While there are are number of options for fertilizing your plants , organic compost stands out best with respect to the fact that it not only promotes the plant growth it helps in improving the quality of soil. 


It is pleasant to know that inclination towards gardening has tremendously increased after the pandemic happened as staying home was a prerequisite for the situation . Home made compost is one of the best product for gardening  that should be taken seriously by the avid Gardeners due to many underlying advantages it has in your garden.

Process of making Homemade compost

There are many ways in which  you can make compost at your home without requiring anything to buy from the market. 


The best way which is practically possible and gives you good result at the end of complete process is piling up dried leaves , vegetable and fruit scrapes in a vacant space or in a bin .Now adding little water in every ten days and then  we should just  observe the decomposition process of all of the stuff         happening gradually .  The entire process of turning dried leaves and scraps in to usable compost   may take somewhere between 180 to 200 days depending upon the weather conditions. 

    Important things to be considered while making home made compost :                                                         

 - It should be considered that while adding food and plant waste like vegetable and fruit scrapes  in the process of making compost items involving products obtained from  animals directly or indirectly should be avoided    in making compost,

- It should be considered that composting process should be carried on while keeping covered the compost bin   for the promotion of decomposition process effectively.             

Meanwhile Snapdrgons are filled with blooms 



And its time to bid adieu to Jungle babblers


And a visit near lake
