Step 1: Pots
Don’t invest a lot of money for buying plastic pots or even earthen pots. What you can do is substitute these pots with plastic bottles, bathtubs, and different buckets that you can use to grow your veggies. Take one such bottle and fill it up with garden soil. Finally, go for home compost.
Step 2: Making Soil
The next thing after pots is to make soil that is nutrient rich which will help in growing the plants. All you have to do for this is, transform the waste from your kitchen like peels of fruits and vegetables to main resource. Later, all you need to do is add red earth right in the pots from time to time.
Step 3: Make a healthy layer for the soil
Keep a check on your soil and check if they are covered with crumpled leaves and sugarcane. With the help of this, the soil will retain moisture and the will provide insulation to the microorganisms from heat.
Step 4: Pour in some Amrut Jal
In every 10 to 20 days, make sure to add amrut jal which is nothing but made of fresh cow dung, urine, water, and black organic jaggery. You can also store it at your home after making it. Alternatively, you can also put in handful of ash of wood in the soil within an interval of three months. Congratulations, your compost soil is ready, time to add the seeds for your plants and vegetables to grow.

Step 5: Time to grow your fruits and veggies
Always buy pollinated seeds when you buy seeds. Avoid the hybrid ones. For starters, go with very basic herbs like mint, tulsi, lemongrass, and so on. They grow even without sunlight and that is why it doesn’t require a lot of effort to grow it.
After all these basic vegetables, you can go ahead and try doing it with other veggies like cabbage, carrot, onion, and tomatoes.
Have fun with your own organic kitchen garden.
