The first thing that comes to one’s mind before you start planting is what to plant and where to get seeds from.
What to plant!? I would leave this one for you guys.
What seeds can be sown, straight from your kitchen to garden-
Here you go…
Coriander seeds :
Yes! corriander seeds, Can be grown directly to your garden/pots.
If you want quicker germination results, cut the coriander seeds in half.
coriander seeds cut in to half germinates in 7-10days, while full coriander seeds takes 2-3weeks. you can sow both of them, so by the time you harvest first batch, second batch starts to sprout.
Bitter Gourd :- (which is also called Karela in India) Cut the vegetable in to half.. take out the seed, wash it, let it dry on a clean cloth under the light. (direct if and sow directly in your garden/pots.
My sister-in-law.. recently did the same and she got awesome results with her plant. Her plant gave beautiful flowers and the fruit of course.

Cucumbers – I have never tried this before.. but I truly believe one could use the same method as Bitter gourd and sow the seeds.Only thing to keep in mind is they should not be hybrid cucumbers, they should be bought from the farm market.
I personally ordered them on line.
Chillies- how can one miss them!! They look so beautiful in your garden:)
One can use dry chillies, cut it in to half and use the seeds as it is.
I have never tried this one before.. but Mustard seeds can be sown directly on the soil as well. The young leaves of the plant can be used in different salads.
This one I will be trying right now!
So choose what you want to sow today!
