My  Vegetable  Garden

My Vegetable Garden

In school, we had learnt about the value of growing vegetables in our own gardens. At that time, prices of vegetables at the market were soaring and many of us tried to grow our own vegetables.

At the side of my house, there used to be a vacant patch of land. I told my parents about turning it into a vegetable garden. They liked the idea and gave me their full support. I managed to get my brothers interested in the project and, together, we cleared the land of weeds and wild grass one Saturday. After school each day, we dug the soil, watered it and applied cow manure.

A week later, we planted seedlings of long beans, brinjals, tomatoes, chillies and lady's fingers in neat rows. We put up a shade of dry coconut leaves to shelter the young seedlings from the merciless beat of the afternoon sun. Within a week or so, the seedlings had shot up, sending out new shoots. I was quite excited.

In six weeks' time, we started harvesting some of the vegetables and put them in baskets. I felt truly happy and proud when I presented the freshly picked vegetables to my mother. They seemed to taste more delicious than the market produce.
