How to grow your own kitchen garden #SustainableLockdown

By: Aanchal Sharma

When the lockdown was announced, everyone ran to buy groceries and vegetables. It was at that time, we all realized how important the kitchen garden is!

You don’t need any major things. Just simple kitchen tools will do. Right now, we have all the time of the world. Why not utilize it and do something productive? Be a farmer of your own house. Grow your own vegetables.

Imagine waking up in the morning and looking at your own garden—full of vegetables.  Cultivating a garden full of your favorite vegetables is a practical way to save a bundle on your grocery bill and it also makes meal planning a snap.

What’s great about a kitchen garden is that it can be manageable, not overwhelming. 

Start small! Plan your kitchen garden with your favorite foods in mind.

It is economical and will always give you profits. You can plant vegetables from vegetables as well as buy seeds from the market but make sure they are not hybrid.

You can even check youtube for detailed procedures and techniques for harvesting your veggies and fruits.

Apart from your vegetables, other things you can grow are yellow mustard, Black mustard seeds, carom seeds, chickpeas.

You can plant them anywhere, in your pots, apartments. Having a kitchen garden is the ultimate and wealthiest thing right now. You have one and teach others also.
