The herbs that we get from market costs 10 INR for a bunch and since one doesn’t satisfy the quantity we prefer to buy 2-3 bunches for 30 INR which is way too costly.

It not only saves money, but it tastes better, and ensures that you know where your food came from-plus, it’s really easy.


1. Cabbage


Cabbages are cool growing plants and they mostly grow during winters and add a special delicacy to seasonal daily food. In ancient times, cabbage was king. What cabbage lacks is sex appeal and trendiness. Cabbage’s has its greatest virtue throughout the ages. It has been as a reliable source of sustenance and vitamins during the cold months of the year because it can withstand any kind of harsh weather conditions during the winter. From ancient times to the present, east to west and north to south, cabbage has been a staple for farmers, peasants, and homesteaders. That is why cabbage which is one of the most reliable sources of nutrient and vitamin is easy to grow in the home instead. It is quite easy to start growing from seeds, either indoors.

The biggest trick knows when to grow it. In most parts of the United States, cabbage is grown in either spring or autumn. Some grow it during winter as storage crop because they crave other greens in the spring. In the South and Southwest, cabbage is a winter crop. The reason for these regional differences is that cabbage heads form best in cool temperatures. Cabbage can be grown in single rows or in staggered in wide rows.


2. Chili


It is said that the origin of chilli has been introduced by Christopher Colombus as early as 1943 during his voyage to India and since then chilli made its way to India. Chilli originated from South America and gradually Asian kitchens even started adding chilli to add flavour to any kind of dish you make. Chilli has high content and since it produces heat, it is more preferred during winter as it produces heat. Since it adds to everyday meal, so ‘Hot chillies’ and ‘Green Chillies’ make excellent pot plants and fruits well in during mid autumn. It grows well in pots, demands adequate amount of sun exposure as well.
