Before quitting jobs to get into Agriculture…
Buy 5 to 10 large pots
Fill them with equal mixtures of (in the ratio 1:1:1)
- Earth (common mud you can dig up anywhere)
- Coarse Sand (if the earth component is too sticky / clayish / too fine)
- Compost (cow dung, or any other dung, straw, leaves, veg/plant waste etc. All rotted together and should have become non-sticky)
mix them all up and fill in the pots and lightly water.
Buy a variety of seeds at an seeds shop.
Soak the seeds in water for a minute or so
and plant the seeds around half inch into the soil mixture in the pots and water.
Not your waiting and observations and learning starts.
Try Cilantro (Kotumbri), The seed is called Daniya. Grows fast. Smells nice and useful in your kitchen.
