It’s quite hard to believe that the vegetables you buy from outside often contain pesticide residues, and hence poisonous. And here’s the best solution: grow vegetables in your courtyard, at least, for the family.

You can grow veggies on your terrace and house compound using hydroponics, a soil-free technique that uses nutrient-enriched water.
