I love to cook and I love cooking when the vegetables I am going to eat are made in my own kitchen garden. Growing a variety of vegetables in my kitchen garden is the best thing I like to do. I wanted to be food self-sufficient always that is the reason I start my own kitchen garden. Though I don’t have a place to grow many crops, I managed to grow a little space in the backyard of my house. In my kitchen garden, I have not only grown seasonal crops but also other crops that were not generally available in offshore. Having a good kitchen garden is also a good way to start living a self-sufficient lifestyle.
Which Plant Should I Grow To Become Food Self-Sufficient?
Though there are lots of plants that can be easily grown on our rooftop or balcony. But it is always necessary to know what kind of plant will support your home environment.
I usually grow climber plants like pumpkin and cucumber because this crop takes up less space.
For Example, I have grown the below-mentioned plant in my kitchen garden:
• Spring Onions – I plant them from month to month and use them as a friend plant inside the space and for crop loads. It is amazing how many plants you can have in a small amount of space. They are growing moderately, yet when you plant every month, something has to be collected continuously. In some cases,
we turn the entire plant and individual occasions into some of the green tops so that it continues to develop. We never buy spring onions. You can plant 50 spring onions at any rate in 1 m2 and in our environment they can be planted in sunlight for 8 months and partial shade in 4 months and in more sizzling months. This is particularly frequent planting by pulling different individual plants together in a seed pot.
• Peas and Legumes – Peas are the winter pre-winter crop in our atmosphere and legumes are a pre-winter to late fall and late spring to late spring crop. I usually have both of these crops that are underway in my kitchen garden and climb the edges to enhance the growth of the space used for climbing.
for a large part of the year. January to March is somewhat lean, yet I have found that snake beans work very well during this abusive climate time. For climbing 1 m2 and 4 m2 (1.3 x 3) of ground space, you can make a huge yield for 3 to 4 plants
• Cooking greens – We usually have a mixture developed in our nurseries and for the greater part of the year we do not purchase cooking greens. Our most basic crop mixtures include Kel, Choi puri, rainbow char, silverbeet, and white. These are for the most part greens that you can continue daily as per the requirement of the leaves. As far as I can tell, I have been gathering for 7 months from a plant before sowing seeds.
Ensure that water is placed over them so that the leaves remain thick and dirt is necessary. You can apply about 6 of these yields in m2. On the off chance that it overheats, hide them. A year ago, I planted each of these crops in my own 8-meter bed and it was 40C multi-week in view of planting. I hid them for a month until it cooled down and the yields continued to flourish for the next 5 months.
• Carrots – Although carrots are not the least yielding demand to grow in our environments when you get the talent to grow them, they are an extreme producer for modest amounts of room. In a bed of 2m2, we made 200 great estimated carrots a year ago. We have 2-3 seedlings each year with the last harvesting in December and first collected in the following year starting in May. After that, we get about a year and a half of carrots and usually freeze them in the ground, for example, we do not cut until we use them. Propose to consistently seed carrots legitimately.
• Beetroot – We have four plants starting in April and assembling from June to December. Transplanting the M2 30-40 thick and around the water will make beet with incredible quality, you can likewise eat topped in the event that you lack greens. Homegrown beets are very sweet to eat. Make sure you plant the beets separately as you often provide them in the same pot with 3-4 plants as a transplant. Destroy them to separate them for continuous planting as you will get a lot more prominent trimming along these lines.
• Climbing cucumbers – Another plant that you can place on the outline of the climb and get an amazing measure of nutrition for space. With 4 plantings we get supplies about 8 months a year. In our winter, they should be in a warm place in your nursery.
Cooking Herbs – We spread our herbs around our nursery beds and furthermore have a committed herb bed. Some of the herbs that we grow are regularly annual, for example, turmeric, garlic, fennel, dill, basil, coriander and parsley and others which are perennials become the largest part of the year, For example, peppermint, parsley, rosemary, lemongrass, sage, thyme, stew, curry bramble, French roan, and chives. For an area of 1 m2, you can have a separate area of annual and permanent herbs.
Building a beautiful kitchen Garden is always possible. You just need to use your mind in the right direction to make one.
