With a blossoming kitchen gardeners' club, many in the original garden city are growing what they eat
Vijay Satish’s day begins on his rooftop terrace at 6am. “I think of it as my meditation time. That’s the kind of peace tending to my kitchen garden gives me," he says. His 1,000 sq. ft terrace is lined with pots. Satish points out 13 types of tomatoes (only a third of the varieties one can grow, we are told), zucchini, bhut jolokia chillies and yellow-coloured brinjal. “You can grow almost anything from across the world in Bangalore. It’s the best place to be a gardener," says Satish.
