Homegrown vegies in the down town




Some months ago, my husbie started to plant some vegetable seeds like
tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, peppers and beets.
He spends at least an hour a day to water and trim our little plants. Two months later, we harvest once a week our goodies!
He's so proud of our garden and I'm so proud of his garden skills! xoxo




It’s so cool the fact that we live in the center of Athens and we eat salad right from our balcony-field!
Here are some tips and a DIY that will make your life easier :)





What can you make using a eco-friendly reusable bag + gravel + soil + seeds + old bed slats?
A handmade flower bed!




DIY flower bed (full of young tomatoes)
1) Using the bed slats he made an opened box.
2) Then he put in the reusable eco bags
3) He filled them with soil, covering the bottom of the bags with gravel.
  4) he planted the seeds and with water and much-much love...: ta-da!



the first harvest!!!


It’s absolutely save to grow your plants in eco-bags.
So far we grow our own herbs (like basil, mint, rosemary, thyme, oregano, lavender), vegetables (like tomatoes, olives, chilies, sweet peppers, cucumbers and lettuce) and fruits (like melons, watermelons & strawberries).

growing your own food at home is a step closer to independency ;)

  1. Με ενθουσίασε !!!

    "Καλλιεργώ" (υποτίθεται) και εγώ σε βεράντα αλλά και σε κήπο, η συγκομιδή όμως δεν είναι τέτοια. Πεπόνια, για παράδειγμα, δεν καταφέρνω να "δέσω", μόνο λουλουδάκια κάνουν και στοπ εκεί. Μόνο οι πιπεριές με αποζημιώνουν.
    Και πάλι, brava !!

      εύχομαι η επόμενη σοδειά να είναι πιο καρπερή!
      την παραπάνω τεχνική στη συνιστώ ανεπιφύλακτα, πάντως... :)
