Starting My Edible Garden

I have always dreamed of having  my own self-sufficient farm where I can generate my own energy and grow my own food, but I do not have the land, the turbines and solar panels, and farming skills yet. This dream will have to start with just a small veggie garden on a tiny pot in our house. (Well, I need to start somewhere.)

Fortunately, my husband's aunt brought home some Chinese Kangkong seeds a few weeks ago. I think she got the seeds from her boss who has his own vegetable garden. The seeds look like these after I removed them from the dried kangkong buds.

I directly planted some of the seeds in moist soil and some I placed in water to help the seeds germinate faster.

Day 1
There's very little change on the second day, but on the third day, you can see that the seeds that I placed in water have bigger sprouts than the ones I put on the soil. I guess, Chinese Kangkong really loves water.
Day 2
Day 3
Day 3
Day 4
Day 4 (I already planted here the seeds that sprouted in the water)
Day 6
On the sixth day, the Kangkong plant is already showing some leaves which I'll probably re-plant on a bigger pot.Then, hopefully we can harvest soon. Yay! (I love Kangkong!) 

I can see that there's a great possibility that I can really make this edible garden work.  This gives me hope that I can grow other plants like peppers, tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables that I can serve on our table. And probably with luck and hard work, my self sufficient farm will come true soon. (Fingers crossed)
