On 13th June, after first monsoon rain after two or three days I apply pesticide spray of "Taramera Oil" and "Mealy Bugs".

WOW! What a great thread. Thanks Asim, for such detailed info. I have a couple of questions for you. I am newbie.

1. How do you measure soil Ph? And how often? What are acceptable values?
2. What is the ideal germination time for a seedling? Four weeks or different for every plant?
3. When do you move the germinated plants? After how much time I mean?
4. What fertilizer to use and how much?
5. How often to use pest spray?
6. How do you come to know that a vegetable e.g. Lady finger is ripe? I know that if you let it stay for a long time it will be over ripe.

My apologies in advance for so many questions in one go but I am totally new.
Thanks and best wishes.

Welcome to newcomers on Gardening Pakistan
Step by Step answers of 6 Question will be:
1. I can use PH Paper to check soil PH level.
Q 2 and Q 3 have the same answer
My ideal time of germination of seedling or transfer of seedling into different pots having Three weeks.
4. Mostly I can use liquid Fertilizer, take 1 liter of bottle add 1 tablespoon liquid fertilize mix it, after 7 to 8 days fertilize different plant according to their requirement.
5. I cannot use different pest spray, I will take special pesticide spray take from shop, I already mention owner and address of this shop, Spray name will be "Taramera Oil" that will control all mealy bugs, aphids and different flying worms.
6. You can daily check, as far as Lady Finger after blooming flower I will wait 3 to 4 days not more than 5 days it will be over ripe.
Best of luck
Asim

I also have taramera oil never thought of applying it. How do I apply it on plant? Should I mix some water with it? Do the direct spray of this oil will burn the plant's leaves?

As far as PH Paper. It's range 1-14. You can check PH level of Water as well as Soil by using PH Paper. It's easily available at Chemical stores and its price will be Rs. 600/- to 1200/-.
Here image of PH Paper.
For Taramera Oil I don't know the procedure. I can purchase from Agriculture Shop in Lahore.
Thanks
Asim

Nearer soon I will send new pictures of vegetables like Egg Plant, Bitter Gourd and Tori.
But still now my Tori vegetable having healthy growth but still waiting for flowers and fruits. I think Lahore will not moderate for Tori, it will easily produce flower and fruit at humid atmosphere of Karachi.
