  • You can grow a good number of vegetables in your kitchen garden easily without depending much on the use of fertilizers. Some of the vegetables that can be easily grown are:
    1. Egg plant / brinjal (baingan)
    2. Bitter gourd (karela)
    3. Ridge gourd
    4. Lady's finger (bhindi)
    5. Tomato
    6. Green chillies (hari mirch)
    7. Tindora
    8. Curry leaves
    9. Amaranthus
    10. Cilantro / corriander
    11. Malabar nightshade / Indian spinach (poi)

    These vegetables can be easily grown in the kitchen garden but the only thing is just like children, these plants to need proper care for their healthy growth. So just by making the plants grow in our backyard and leaving the plants to their fate will not give good yield but these need to be looked after properly and should be provided with proper nutrition from time to time will really help in giving good result.

    It is not difficult to look after these plants but once in a while, the soil around need to be loosened to ensure free flow of air. The surrounding should be weeded out in case of heavy growth of unwanted plants and the soil should be provided with good manure from time to time. If we spend little time for these plants, we will get good yield.

    Thanks & Regards

    Apart from vegetables a number of fruit can also be grown in your garden by planting their trees. some of them may include:
    Banana, grapes, water melon, musk melon, papaya or 'papita', lemon, 'amrood', mango tree and so on.

    you have to look after whatever you plant in your garden as there also they are prone to be effected by insects and pests. But since gardening in your back yard involves small area, you can very well look after them and destroy any insects or pests effecting them using organic agents or neem-spray.

    Potatoes could be grown in long gunny bags filled with soil with holes in various places. This way you could even hang them on walls. Cabbages could also be grown in similar way. One of my friends is planting potatoes and cabbages in long gunny bags filled with soil to make best use of less space in her garden.

    Further, you may divide your garden in small squares and use each one of them for a particular type of plant. This way it becomes easy to look after them and counter plant infection with more efficiency. You may leave your pet in your garden so that their excreta could work as manure for your plants. You may think about having hen in your garden. You can leave them in your garden from where they would help you by eating on small worms destroying your plants.
