My gardening hobby kicked in last year in full steam. And after seeing how much joy they bring me I decided to try vegetable gardening this time.
Where I grow my chili
I just have a small balcony, so I have to maximize the usage of space for my garden and then some to actually walk and enjoy that garden.
Balcony vegetable beds are quite handy for growing vegetables in indoor gardens. I got two of these beds for a combination of vegetables. I initially planted coriander, the chili, the strawberries and some chive together in a biggish bed.
My big balcony bed is nothing but a oversized pot. So putting a lot of vegetables, each with different growth rate in different seasons was not a very good idea.
The strawberries and the coriander initially dominated the growth of the chili because of the same pot. Once I realized the chili was not growing well, I transferred it into its own pot.
No sooner had the chili gotten its own pot, that it started to grow super fast.
For my garden, I add organic fertilizers occasionally. My balcony gets plenty of sun and with lots of sun and my love, the chili has grown up into a big plant now.
So far there are no chili growing on it. However, it has plenty of flowers and warm September is just starting. Soon I can also eat spicy green chillies.
If you want me to post more detailed information about planting, potting and other experiences, do let me know. I try to keep my posts simple as of yet.
