    Dear Viny
    nice post. Your post reminded me my childhood days. We had a lovely garden in our home and my mother always used the vegetable / organic waste in growing plants in the garden instead of throwing it. I still follow this practice of disposing organic waste in the garden so that the plants use the nutrients and have a healthy growth.

    Thanks you Gayatri and Skchivukula

    Dear Gayatri It does not smell bad at all... Instead it help preventing the foul smell around. These pictures of somebody's hose in Delhi. You can always give a try at your roof. Papaya doesn't have hard & long roots penetrated inside the soil so I thik you can grow it on roof as shown in the picture.

    Give it a try and and let us know if it works...

    dear viny

    if you have a huge garden
    composting is pretty easy
    but if space is small
    perhaps you can try out
    a small can perforated here and there
    add kitchen waste
    no non veg items
    except maybe egg shells
    i don't know i''m veg
    a little cow dung
    say perhaps once a week
    and a few earthworms
    from a nearby wet place
    a shade with some coconut fronds
    the compost should be wet
    but not too soggy
    turn things over say once in 15 days
    and in about two months time
    you should get good compost for plants

    alternatively you can have the seven pot method
    have seven pots
    add kitchen waste to one pot a day
    say half kg of waste from a normal nuclear family
    (vegetable and fruit wastes)
    if you mash waste it disintegrates faster
    call them monday tue etc....
    and this is also a sure way to get kitchen waste
    to compost fast
    in any case it takes 45 days minimum

    Hi,
    I have a large terrace but am not able to do much gardening. I go out of town often and I do not have anyone to water the plants during my absence. My plants wither due to this . I want to have a few veg and fruit plants too. At present, I am having some flower plants, tulsi, rose plants etc. in pots in the terrace. I will try this method as far as I could and let you know.
    Thanks for the information. Please share website address if any.
