So glad you were able to post your photos.
Tell us about what you have planted and what you are doing. I'm curious to see what is different in India vs the US

Thanks! With your and Sandersons help I was able to do that. I stay in Pune city in the state of Maharashtra. 
I have a small balcony on 3rd floor. In that space I grow some flowers and in remaining space heirloom vegetables. I use mix of Cocopeat and compost to grow with weekly dose of 19:19:19. Cocopeat keeps my containers light weight. I can accommodate around 30 odd containers (I place them wherever possible in balcony, window sills). Whether here is quite good and I can grow plants thru out the year. We have three seasons here Feb to May is summer, June to September is rainy season and Oct to Jan is winter. (no frost here). 
I love to grow heirloom tomatoes and peppers and have reasonably good collection of 50+ heirloom tomatoes, lot of colourful radishes, beets mostly from baker creek and Trade wind Fruits. I have some rare squashes and pumpkins seeds from them, though may not be able to grow them in containers. 
In US you have easy access to thousands of heirloom seeds which we don't have here in India. We need to buy them overseas. I tried buying on eBay and Amazon locally but most of those seeds are fake. (I spent three odd months growing Carolina Reaper and one fine day I found that it's ordinary long chilli)
My dream is to start heirloom vegetables farm (grown organically). Let's see how things go!

Regards
Avinash

Beautiful, thanks for sharing, and welcome to the forum!
What is the first plant? ...Is it ginger?
I just found out about Trade Winds Fruit this year. I got several tomato seed packets from them, but in my location tomatoes are very short and young. I'd guess your blue tomato came from them -- which kind is it?
And what type of ... is it a green eggplant? Is it a kind that is green when ripe, or what color will it change to?

Yes it is Ginger. Actually it is old photo. I planted a small piece of about 20-30gms in that 8" pot and in return harvested 450gms of ginger! My blue tomatoes are from Hong Kong - they are Blue berries Tomatoe. I got my Indigo Rose and Dancing with smurfs  from Trade Wind fruits. Indigo Rose was good but DWS produced regular red tomato. 
Yes it is green Eggplant variety with white stripes on it. It will stay green-white on maturity. It is Indian heirloom and generally roasted with spring onion, garlic and chillies.

Darn...you guys really know your plants!

Avinash, any chance you can get a picture of you entire balcony instead of just the individual plants. I would like to see what kind of space you are working with.

Wow, that's a lot of ginger! I tried to grow ginger indoors, but the growing cycle was different than my climate and I'd forget to water it, and it died.

I'm sorry your Indigo Rose didn't grow the right color. This will be my first year trying blue tomatoes. One type has sprouted, but not the other.

I did not like eggplant as a child, but I like it a lot now. In my first square foot garden I grew 3 eggplants. Last year I grew 6. My plan this year has 8, but 2 of the seeds haven't sprouted yet. They are all purple-types. I bought small round orange ones once from a market, but they were very very bitter - I think they were over-ripe.

Yes RT. Actually I have fabricated iron stand for containers on outer side of my balcony walls in L shape. width is about 2 feet and length is say 20+feet on one wall and 6+ feet on other side.. Similarly extended my window grills to accommodate few plants I will try to post actual photos today evening.
