Vegetable garden on terrace or roof

Inspiration on growing vegetables on roof developed while discussing with my friend Mr D, he had lot of video collections and that influenced me and there was nothing that can stop me in doing this. Looking at the benefits apart from vegetables that I can fetch, there are other benefits like; spending time at home instead of hanging around in shopping, visiting places and having food from restaurants, I am occupied with my family and the plants. I call my friends to my home and we all have food from home lets live natural.................

The images shared here is the roof garden maintained by me, here I  have grown multiple varieties of vegetables.
