Watermelon can be grown in sack
NOTE: this is just a control test to see is it will grow well in sack.... and from the pictures, you will notice the watermelon in the sack is growing better than the one on the soil which were planted on the same day.

One Zucchini for N500? shocked When one local Kenyan market woman was cajoling me to take one very big one for 20ksh (N75)!

You can grow them both in sacks as for Parsley once it survives, one can continually harvest it for up to 2 years.

Your mum can add other herbs to her garden such as peppermint, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, sage, lovage etc One gets to harvest them within 3 months of planting them, just get good quality seeds for her.

Once you get the seeds, we can start from there. Check on another Nairalander by the name soloxam, he is well known for selling seeds.
