French bean plants were the performer of the month – December 2020. I got a good amount of French beans last month. I never expected that. Though those were not enough for my family. But the number of French beans I got from only 6 plants that were really unbelievable. Those plants are still providing enough number of French beans. I am using mostly organic inputs to grow those plants except I am spraying NPK 18-18-18 on my plants after every 10-15 days. So those are not 100% organic vegetables but mostly made with organic inputs. I am growing French beans for the first time in my life and I am happy with my harvested vegetables. So I would definitely say that French bean plants are the performer of the month (December 2020).
I have used plastic bottles, grow bags, clay pot to grow those plants. I chose bush type French beans to grow in pots.
I used compost, garden soil & sand to make the potting mix. After that when the plant became 1-month old then I started applying mustard cake liquid fertilizer after every 10 days.
I am also applying organic fungicide every 10 days. I chose Liebigs company’s thunders fungicide for this purpose.
I am also using organic insecticide Kaka (Vedic Agro Science Pvt Ltd), traditional pesticide like Dashparni ark, buttermilk etc. Dashparni ark is very easy to make. But if you are living in a city then you may face difficulty to get ingredients to make Dashaprni ark.
After every 10-15 days, I am spraying seaweed extracts based plant growth promoter along with NPK 18-18-18. I follow almost the same care for every kind of plants. It makes gardening simple & the result is always great.
So it is not absolutely organic vegetables. But I am using mostly organic items to grow vegetables.
So which vegetable gave you maximum vegetables in the last month? Which is the best performing plant in your kitchen garden? Please share your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
