Gardening at Home Without a Backyard!

Part of me being a frugal is finding means to lessen my expenses. One of the ways I find really interesting, joyful to do and rewarding is gardening. I don’t have a backyard and I only plant on pots at the rooftop where it can get most of the sunlight.  I’m not also an experienced gardener and these are all from seeds of the veggies and fruits we’ve eaten. Thanks to the internet too because of the endless information about gardening.

Little did I know that after almost a year (on and off) since I started, I’m slowly building an edible garden on top of my concrete house. And I don’t have plans of stopping anytime soon despite of the small space. Currently, I have Calamansi, Papaya, Kamatis (tomato), Talong (eggplant),  Bell Pepper and Ampalaya (bitter gourd).

Gardening does not only help you in saving money, it also gives you the freshest harvests and a therapeutic way to spend your free time.
