Dirt-to-Dish

My balcony garden

Dirt-to-Dish concept isn’t a new one. It’s basically growing your own produce and later cooking with it. I have been intrigued by the idea of growing my own vegetables and having a little balcony garden and thus, decided to document it…on Facebook. I had totally forgotten about sharing my experiences on this blog…until now.

Anyway, the balcony garden has the following plants:

  • Orange Jessmine
  • Jasmine
  • Curry leaf tree
  • Pandanus
  • Lavender
  • Ginger

It has two planter boxes which contain some choy sum and angled petola seeds as well as mint cuttings. I also got myself a Japanese Rose plant as well as a Dianthus to help give it some colour.

Am hoping that with some care, this little corner will grow to be a green one soon!
