However, because they live in a part of Bicutan where soil is not readily available, he made use of discarded vegetables as his "soil." He said he learned the composting procedure from me, and this was how he did it.
He collected all parts of vegetables that were discarded during cooking--peels, stems, dried leaves, soft seeds, and even leftover cooked vegetables. He put them in a container and let them rot for weeks until they were easy to crush. He pulverized them as much as possible and then that became "soil." He placed them in the sawed off plastic bottles and discarded pails and planted vegetables on them.
They grew well and bore good fruit, and because they were grown with nothing but rotten vegetables and water, they were organic. He gave me some onion springs, ampalaya, eggplants, and okra and my wife cooked "bulanlang" with them and they tasted sweet.
You don't need a back or front yard for gardening. You can do it in a portion of your garage or a rooftop if you have one. If you don't have soil available, it also isn't a problem. Just do what my bible disciple did. You can now grow your own organic vegetables the easiest way and start eating organic veggies grown straight from your own garden.
And we all know how much higher organic vegetables cost compared to those grown with chemical fertilizers.
So now you know how easy it is to grow organic plants and herbs in the Philippines!
