Growing Vegetables in my Balcony - Summer (2012)

Glimpse of My Kitchen Garden

Me and hubby enjoyed our first experience of vegetable gardening in containers in our balcony. Though I always had a passion for flowers but this time we enjoyed our gardening efforts on our platter. The best part is it's all ORGANIC... with my home made compost from kitchen waste.

    Any further help on this is most welcome.

  3. Great Share!

    I always prefer using home-made compost and the best way is using kitchen waste as your garden compost that shows excellent results and costs nothing. You just simply place a bin outside of your home and collect kitchen waste regularly and after getting decayed it becomes a healthy compost.


Happy New Year
