Step one: Gather a pile of rotten vegetables and egg shells. Step two: Put them in a bucket or a big container, just make sure you leave an opening for air circulation, and after a few weeks you have compost nice and rotten! ready for your plants. How easy was that? OK the next thing to do is to make sure your in the right country lets see, yes UAE! now it is not about the country but about the weather of your country, so right now in UAE it is winter and the weather is lovely perfect for plant growth, not too hot not too cold but just right!

My vegetable patch

One of my favorite hobbies next to cooking is gardening, I love to examine the growth of my plants, so far I have tomatoes, cauliflower, zucchini, carrots, potatoes, hot peppers, sweet potatoes, bush beans,beet root, sweet corn,sweet dumpling squash, onions, garlic, spinach, arugula, watermelon and a strange plant that looks like honey dew melon. Phew! I will send pictures of my garden, oh and I will give facts about gardening, for beginners who want to learn how to garden. I know you might think you don’t need to learn to garden, but let me remind you gardening isn’t just stuffing a seed in a pile of dirt, but it it about proper care to it, and the more you care the more your plant will grow. So goodbye and happy growing!
