Farm update - 17-April-2013

Hello everybody,

Sorry for not updating about the farm for last couple of months. I was quite stuck with Farm house construction and slowly coming out of it.


Watch this video and know what's going on currently.

We were getting vegetables since last 4 months from our farm for house consumption, except Potato and Onions. You can see the Output page to know what kind of vegetables we were getting. It goes without saying that the taste, quality and feel was much better than market vegetables.

Few weeks before I had planted Cucumber and we had got 2 nos. till now. Surprisingly even the last portion of those cucumber were not bitter, all were eatable and sweet. As we have got very good rain for two days few weeks before so again my farm is looking green covered with grasses and old Bitter gourd plants have become green and yielding.

We have also got 2nd harvest from the same Red Gram plants we had sowed in last rainy season. As per Raju Titus uncle suggestion, we had not cut the Red Gram plants during our first harvest. We had just plucked the grains and left the plants as it is. We irrigated them few time and they started flowing and bearing grains. You can see them in the video above.

For last couple of months, I struggled a lot during construction of the Farm, you can read a bit about it in that post. Was depressed and went into Negative mode however the love of greenery and my commitment to do something good for the society brought me back and I am good to go.

Thanks for reading and sorry for some straight words, negative words if any. If you have any suggestions, comments or want to help me, let me know.
