I know I have posted 2 recipes with ingredients from my garden and many of you think I have a great big garden. I do have a good garden, but not too big, just something I have started with many mistakes of course, like I didn't think my first crop of Carrots and few other vegetables, which is kind of a mess, so I plan to harvest and then re-plant few things.
Here is a small pic of some of my veggies. I am growing Zucchini, Cucumber, Cilantro, Mint, Spinach, Carrots, Beetroot, Peas, Snap Beans, Green Chillies, Bell Pepper, Okra, Eggplant and Tomato. I know that sounds like a lot, but everything is just planted, so a long way to go and only few plants per veggie as I don't have enough space for big rows and lot of plants and I don't want to crowd it all.

I also have planted Lemon, Pomegranate, Orange, Avocado and Papaya about 2-3 months ago, so it will take about 2-3 years before I can see any fruits on those. I am dying to get Guava and Mango, but couldn't find any plants. If anyone has any ideas on how to grow them from seeds at home, let me know.

I also have few flowers in my garden like Roses, Hibiscus, Bougainvillea, Azalea, Sun Peasant and Star Jasmine, just few, again at an early stage, so hopefully, by next year this time, they will be beautifully blooming.

I am a big enthusiast of home gardens and want to have a big garden, but, that is the disadvantage of living in a big city where you cannot have very big backyards.
I just thought I will give a sneak peak at my veggie garden, that I have been boasting about. I welcome all suggestions and tips on new garden. I like to plant my stuff on soil instead of pots.
That's all for now. Take care till next post.
