Hello friends, how are you? As you know that this blog is for all foodies & gardeners. Gardeners who love to grow vegetables and fruits, often do not need to visit a vegetable market to buy for their family because they produce those vegetables in their own garden. There are always some vegetables what gardeners hardly need to buy from the market in every season. From my experience, I can say that I hardly need to buy okra, brinjal, malabar spinach, ridge gourd, long beans (borboti) etc during the summer season. During every winter season, I grow plenty of lablab beans/hyacinth beans/sem phali/seem, brinjal, radish, chilli etc. So I do not buy those vegetables during the peak season of those vegetables. But still, I follow the vegetable market prices every month. It helps me to keep motivated, haha. So here is the vegetable price list for October 2020, Kolkata, India.
