My name is Manu, i am from Baroda.
Working in a IT company, me & a friend of mine have started terrace gardening in containers. Its been 2 months now & we are crazy about it..we spend daily 1-2 hrs & give more time during weekends..
We have grown small tomatoe & eggplant plants of 1-2 feet height, few spinach, fenugreek, amaranthus, climbers etc. Eggplants have started to show fruits. Growth of tomatoes are also good. Climbers are in seed starting phase. Harvested spinachs a couple of times.
We had done a lot of research in the begining & came across this site which I must say is been very informational & motivating.
We have around 1000 sqft terrace space half of which is covered in green net.. will post pictures later..
for growing medium we use cocopeat, sand, soil & compost in equal ratios. we use NPK 19:19:19 & some micro nutrients as well..
for pests we use neem, soap mixs..
wish everyone a happy gardening.

From what you have written you seem to be in the right direction and it it appears that you are getting a good yield also.. but then why the name "Frustrated gardener" 😉 Give yourself a pat. Because many people just have a garden in their dreams.. you have made it happen. anyway take it easy.
Welcome to this site and looking forward to more participation from you and do post the pics. they motivate all of us.
