What to grow in Monsoon season (Jun-July)?
It's time to grow your Monsoon veggies. There are so many easy-to-grow options in this season. Sow seeds in the month of Jun- July. All the below-recommended veggies can be grown in Grow Bags or pots in small spaces of your balcony/ terrace also.
Tomato, Okra, Cucumber, Brinjal, Chilli, all gourds (bottle gourd, bitter gourd, apple gourd & sponge gourd) and Capsicum can be grown in this Monsoon.
Monsoon is not limited to growing only vegetables, many herbs can be grown also. Basil, Mint, Coriander, Giloy, Methi, etc. Few of the herbs are ideally grown in the winter season like methi, but you can easily grow good enough for your salads and garnishes. Herbs can be easily at home in small pots in few hours of sunlight.
Usually, we avoid leafy vegetables in the rainy season. If grown at home in grow bags with the use of nicely digested compost and cocopeat, it is safe to consume. Avoid using cow dung compost that is not matured enough.
Spinach, Amaranth red & green varieties, Methi & Arugula can be grown easily at home. Grow poi saag which is totally safe because it is a climber.
