Growing vegetables

Many people think growing vegetables is difficult. I would like to assure you that you don't need green fingers, what you need is the right growing condition. Our balcony in the office enjoys direct sunlight daily which vegetables love. Every now and then, I simply toss some seeds in the pots filled with compost and they germinate in no time.
 All we do is water daily. We pretty much leave them alone the whole time. They grow up nicely without any meddling. The only trouble is, they get parched over the weekend when nobody is around to do the watering. Luckily, we've been getting enough rain lately, so our cai xin and xiao bai cai are thriving.


  1. Wow, your vege looks very healthy! I tried planting kangkong but they died before getting very big.... maybe I don't have enough sunlight?

  2. Could be several reasons. The soil could be too compacted and water cannot reach the roots. Or could be over crowding? Also, vegetables need lots of sunlight to grow to maturity.
