After successful cultivation of flowering plants I added a few vegetables to my container gardening. These included Brinjals, Tomatoes, Pumkins, Okra, Cilantro, Colocasia and.Origanum. Smooth Gourd was also successfully cultivated but not in a container but in raised bed using bricks. Pumkin could not be cultivated successfully in a container. Cilantro also did not do well probably because of shallow container I used. I will modify the methods of cultivation and hope to succeed. Oregano is Origanum vulgare. It is hardy and can be easily grown by cuttings. The color of the leaves is light green. The aroma is so strong that even a gentle touch to the plant spreads the aroma around. The taste is fragrant, spicy, pungent and slightly bitter. The plant owes its usefulness as a culinary herb to its volatile oil. It is mixed with salads and the leaves are popularly used to make Bhajias. I have also planted Green Bean and Moth Bean. Taste and quality wise there is no substitute to home grown vegetables, and I have taken the matter seriously. Hope to share many new vegies in the near future.

Your veg plants look as healthy and attractive as your flower plants, Sharad. Many of your veg. are unfamiliar to me, so very interesting. Is this the first time you have tried growing them in containers? Good luck for a successful crop. :)

Your plants look very healthy and well tended. You will be enjoying wonderful vegetables soon. You are growing some vegetables that are unfamiliar to me. Can you tell me more about Brinjals and Colocasia? They all look very interesting and beautiful and I imagine they will taste wonderful too.

Robin, Brinjal is another name for the eggplant which I suppose you know. Colocasia is similar to Elephant Ear but amaller in size. Available abundantly during the rainy season it is used to make curry with additions of cashew or ground nuts. It irritates the throat if a sour vegetable, lemon or tamarind is not added. Locally it is very popular addition to a menu in marriage parties. I have posted a project on eggplant earlier. I will tell more about mothbean and greenbean in a separate post later.
Thanks all for your remarks.

Sharad, thank you for the answers. I did not make the connection between your eggplant post and the name Brinjal. I think it is interesting to contemplate how people came up with preparation recipes over time that allow us to eat delicious plants that normally would be irritating or even harmful if they were eaten raw or not in a combination with something else.
