“Everything is so expensive these days, Vegetables are sold at the market at gold’s price”, says my granny! We often don’t pay attention to them and walk away!
Well, if we give a thought to what the old people say, we will realize that tomatoes which costed 1 rupee back then- during their times, costs around 30Rs.now! Potatoes which costed around 50 paisa per kg back then are now costing around Rs.40/kg. Onions are even worse- They used to cost around 1 Rs. /kg but now it seems like they have to be bought only by the rich!

Such is the situation of the cost of vegetables we use on a daily basis in our cooking. Tomatoes, potatoes and onions are major suppliers of daily dose of proteins and carbohydrates. Neither can some afford it nor can they stay away from it!

With the hole in the wallet and continuous complaints on our lips, we do nothing to improve upon the situation!

On the other hand, the rate of deficiency disease are on a high- more than any contagious diseases, people are suffering from various deficiency related diseases, especially people who are between the age 10-25 years.

Why? Even after being a ‘hygiene-freaks’, we still end up popping in tablets for reasons that can be dealt with in very simple ways and yet we choose to ignore it!!

So, what is the one-time solution to all these problems?? It has to be simple, not-so-time-consuming and inexpensive!!!

Well, it’s right there, “Kitchen gardening”.., grow your own vegetables at home, harvest them, cook them and eat them!!!!

Well, why kitchen gardening? Here it goes..,

1. You get to grow your OWN vegetables- a sense of primitivity that envelops the whole core of human civilization where food played a vital role in evolution. You need not go to the shopping complex to buy it (wasting petrol- non renewable resources), its right in your backyard or terrace- ‘fresh and green’! (Who doesn’t love the smell of fresh vegetables?!?!)

2. Since you put the seeds, water it and watch it grow, you have a sense of security that the vegetable is not infested with pesticides and insectides which might lead to all kind of manifestational diseases- lack of the required nutrients to the growing plant often leads to deficiency diseases.

3. When compared to the prices that the supermarkets quote on the vegetables, growing our own vegetables can be far less expensive considering the seeds, pot, mud, water etc. costs. (I think we can get 3kgs of tomato at home garden at the cost of ‘supermarket’ 1kg of tomatoes.)

4. When you are home gardening, there is always family involved in such activities and bonding becomes inevitable. These ‘family-fun time’ are more productive and environmental-friendly and our children will also learn about the importance and significance of keeping our world green. (After all, home is the first school!)

5. The variety that your garden can provide is amazing- ranging from seasonal vegetables to vegetables used in everyday curry/salads/dressing vegetables etc. Plant what you feel like eating- Isn’t that simple?

6. If one is wondering, “ok, all those said above is true, but I know nothing about plantation or gardening, how can I go about it?” Well, for beginners, we provide an excellent online tutorial on kitchen gardening. There are textbooks available (written by experts) on how to go about the kitchen gardening along with pictorial representation.

7. Seeds, natural additives to the soil(minerals), vermin compost- when all these are available at extremely reasonable prices, I don’t find a reason why we should still buy expensive pesticide infested vegetables driving all the way to the supermarket and stand in the queue during the billing process?!

We, at SankalpTaru, have come half way down to help you, I’m sure, all our readers will come half way down to- to reach us- and make this world greener and our lives easier!
