Organic farming is a form of agriculture that relies on crop rotation, green manure, compost, biological pest control
and mechanical cultivation to maintain soil productivity and control pests.
Since in urban cities limitation is insufficient land for farming, the concept of terrace farming, vertical and container farmings are upcoming trends in urban farming. Here in this blog I will be sharing every single effort and techniques in building my Organic Roof :)

Brinjal Plantation ( Egg Plant)

Brinjal is one among the most beautiful vegetables, and also very tasty dishes can be prepared.
growing brinjal require the seeds to germinate first in a different tray.

I tried growing brinjal in plastic sack, it took 40 days to grow brinjal at this height.
Support for brinjal may require as the fruit is little heavy, so plan for the support prior to transplanting to bigger container.

Usage of fertilizer and other pesticides can be avoided to produce organic fruit. Soil preparation prior to planting is very important.

Soil preparation is done while using cow dung or vegetable wastes. Kitchen wastes can be separated from plastic papers and other non degradable wastes. these can be mixed with soil and can be prepared for producing manure. Same is being used here instead of fertilizers.

This gives more excitement when it fruits, I believe everyone would enjoy this result after a little effort and care that we can give.

Plucked from the garden and displayed at kitchen, ready for veg curry....yummmmm...
