I started 'gardening' in the balcony by accident. I don't know if you can call planting a few stuff without much thinking gardening. Anyway, I saw this organic bak choy at Metro (a cash n' carry that usually has Asian stuff) bought it - then found that it comes with roots!
So I tried to replant the bak choy in a jar and at the same I had some spring onions so I thought I will replant them too. I gave them water but didn't pay too much attention to them as I had classes. But after a week I noticed that the bak choy had grown new leaves and the spring onions are also sprouting new greens.

Actually a year ago I was deciding between growing a plant or having a pet. I decided to get a pet and of course having a plant was out of the question because I didn't even know how to handle a cat at the time. But now, I'm used to living with my cat and although he is very curious and active - he has broken a few glasses and plates because he ran like the Flash and jumped about - at least I know how to handle him.
So now I have a new project, to plant vegetables in my balcony! Haha.
|Took this black plastic box from outside the market and bought two packets of soil|
|I don't even know if I'm doing it right, I put my bak choy there, my spring onions there, and also i'm trying to germinate some chilli seeds by just throwing them there *cross fingers*|
|And I have to cover with another plastic box because of this curious little boy|
So I'm now trying to grow garlic and mint. Let's see if they will happen too or not. I guess I keep thinking of new things to grow. I must say, there's something nice about growing plants. When you see that new green sprouting, it feels like ahh satisfaction. Like you have something to look forward to. Or maybe I just want distractions from studying :p
|I think garlic is on the right track|
|I'm hoping that those two are my chillies|
About the composting, I am still not 100% sure. I have started it, but I think I want to give it up. Hmm.. Do leave a comment if you have any tips for composting or gardening!
Thank you for reading my blog :)
