I have many hobbies, which I like to do in my leisure time.

I love listening to music, watching TV and indulge in kitchen garden some gardening in my.

Here, I would like to talk about my favourite hobby, which is gardening.
Actually, my mother maintains a kitchen garden in our backyard.

I have been helping her since my childhood.

I don’t even remember when I developed a passion for this.

The first thing I do when I get up is water the plants.

Then I spend few minutes every day picking out the weeds.

We have grown okra, aubergine, coriander, mint, fenugreek, garlic, radish, green chillies, bottle gourd and bitter gourd.

We don’t use any insecticides and pesticides in our kitchen garden.

Believe me ma’am/sir these vegetables taste much better than those we buy from the market.

Sometimes we gift a bottle gourd to our neighbours.

My mother makes compost at home from kitchen waste.

We keep throwing the kitchen garbage in a big drum and sprinkle some powder on it which we ordered from Trustbasket company.

It is meant for making anaerobic compost.

The drum has to be air­tight because of this powder.

So, it does not emit any foul smell or gather flies.

I look forward to spending time in my kitchen garden. I even talk to my plants, and sometimes, I feel that my plants listen to me. When I am in my kitchen garden, the time flies very fast.
I forget all my worries and tension and feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
