Bitten By The Organic Farming Bug
I started a new hobby recently, urban organic farming. There was this urge to add flowering plants to my yard, along with the palms that I had planted over two years before. Now, I have not only added the usual garden plants, but some small crops as well. I am starting off with containers of any kind, while I am preparing my garden space.
As you can see, I have a few varieties in my garden, but my yard space was just looking too green, it needed some colour.
As you can see these plants seemed to handle the sun and tropical climate really well, but I wanted to do more in my urban organic farm.
I have decided to plant only that which I eat. This includes: pepper, scallion, garlic, pumpkin, melon, onion and thyme. While some are self sufficient, others require my constant attention and rescue.
There is no excuse not to plant your own foods and practice urban organic farming. Even if you live in a small apartment, so long as you have a window, sunlight, water and a small container you can plant and produce basic season in for your meat and vegetables as well.
So come back often, because I will be providing updates of my Jamaican Urban Organic Farming experience.
