Growing Bitter gourd – Unexpected Success!

It was my husband’s idea to grow Bitter gourd this year. I thought our balcony might not be the right place for the plant. I wasn’t confident and left it to him. But it turned out to be a great success. We harvested 3 bitter gourds in the first round. Expecting 5 more in the second. 😀

I grow Fenugreek and Coriander plants in these big rectangular pots. I planted both at the same time but Coriander seeds take a very long time to germinate.
