A man has become an internet sensation for his unconventional way of farming.
The man, a Bukit Panjang resident in Singapore, is said to grow crops in the sky, that is, he doesn't plant in the soil on the ground.
In photos shared on Facebook by his daughter Wang Jun, the farmer identified as Steve Tan who lives upstairs took advantage of the small pavement of his apartment window to cultivate crops.
Wang said that despite her dad not owning any land, he has recorded remarkable success on his 'sky garden.'

Wang went on to share Steve in different poses as he showcased fruits harvested from the sky farm.
He has been farming in the 'sky' for many years
The 66-year-old farmer told Mothership that he actually cannot tell when he started using his flat window to farm but it has been on for many years
The elderly man set the crops in a nursery and applies fertilizers to them regularly.
He also created a small pond inside his house that waters the crops via a pipe and is regulated by a self-timer.
