It is very much possible to grow more vegetables and fruits in the limited space of your garden by judicious utilization of the available space. Some of the vegetable that can be easily grown without much fuss in your garden are as follows:
- Lauki or gourd.
- Bitter gourd or karela.
- Ladies finger.
- Pumpkin or 'kaddu'.
- Spinach and other green leafy vegetable.
- Green chilly.
- Curry leaves.
- Drum sticks.
- Coriander or ' haraa dahnia'.
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.
