Hi everyone

I came across this site yesterday when I was looking for tips on vegetable gardening.  I am from Pune.  Am an avid nature lover.  Have been growing flowering plants on my apartment balcony for the last many years but want to try my hand at veggies now.  Have lots of birds and squirrels visiting my balcony since i have a bird feeder and water bowls amidst my pots.

Look forward to my own home grown veggies in containers.  Any tips on what i should start with ??

Hi,

Nice to hear that you are from Pune.

Can you tell me what seeds do you put in the bird feeder and what kind of birds visit your balcony. I have just put up a feeder in my garden and hoping the birds visit.

 

I have also seen squirrils in my garden so I keep some peanuts for them.. What you you feed them?

Hi Patricia

My bird feeder is a 1 kg jar. So its about a kg of bajra and a handfull or two of rice.  Its mainly for the sparrows.  However, the squirrels enjoy this too.
