Another planting season


For both new and returning visitors - welcome to my blog about vegetable gardening in containers (pots) in your yard or balcony in Dubai or anywhere else in the United Arab Emirates or for that matter the other GCC countries as the climate is pretty much similiar.

Welcome back to a new growing season.  It's been a loooong hot summer for me ..... hopefully some of you got away.  Ms. Bubba and I tend to take our breaks from Dubai during other times of the year when all the kids are in school and the tourist crowds have subsided - it's just the two of us.  We will be taking another extended break during the upcoming Eid holidays.

Here in is my problem.  If I plant now then there is no one to water the crops.  During our last trip the person who was suppose to water thing did a miserable job and they all died.  So, this year I will have to wait till I get back by mid-Nov. to plant seeds or hopefully seedlings if I can get it organized properly.  I think it will be too late to plant seeds by mid-Nov.  

So, hopefully you have planted your seeds already and will be planting seedlings soon.  If you have not planted your seeds yet ... here are some help tips.
