This post is already late and we all know the reason why? Yeah, the greenhouse. I have been moving around pots, setting up drip and making a bench and what not.. Its been quite a hectic week but full of fun and enjoyment.

The response for greenhouse post was overwhelming and thanks for all the wishes and motivation provided by you all. I am working on the post that details about the making of the greenhouse from cost, materials to lessons learnt.. 😉

The winter is kinda on its way out and summer is ready to jump in.. Lets see what we can sow this Jan.

Leafy veggies:

  • Lettuce
  • Indian Spinach ( Palak)


  • Pumpkin
  • Ridge gourd
  • Cucumber
  • Snake gourd
  • Water melon
  • Musk Melon


  • Radish
  • Carrot
  • Onion

Fruit veggies:

  • Tomato
  • Brinjal
  • Ladies finger
  • Chillies
  • Bean

Go!, rollup your sleeves and do some serious seed starting.The gourds, and other veggies that have a hard seed coat can be soaked overnight to hasten germination. You will be surprised with the increase in the germination % that an overnight soak can achieve.

While you all are busy seed starting, I will go work on the  “greenhouse-the making” post.
