"I am a tenant somewhere, but I'd love to do something like this with the small verander at my bedroom balcony, so that my landlady won't think I want to turn her house into a farm. I need idea to plant this okro."
"Now you don't need to go to the market for Okro. Honestly this is worth emulating. Procrastination will be the death of me."
"You blow my mind the Sunday afternoon ma. Meaning I can interlock my compound and still have a farm. No need to till one land somewhere. Thank you for this ma."
