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 :)

Cabbage Plantation

Cabbage is one of the most popular winter vegetables grown in India. Cabbage is used as salad,  and dehydrated vegetable as well as in cooked curries. Cabbage is rich in minerals and vitamins A, B1, B2 and C.

Keep the soil uniformly moist and Keep the soil moist by watering every other day. Place the containers in a spot that gets as much sun as possible.

Fertilizing and watering cabbage plants is important just like cauliflower.  

Plant uses water to absorb the nutrients from the soil. Additionally, cabbage has a high water content, so without enough water, the heads will dry out, crack and become bitter.
