Times of India, Mumbai wrote an article on vegetable gardening on Dec 5th. 

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.....977051.cms

The snippet from the paper.

<brag>
Urban gardeners on the crusade to make planters of the public have discovered the blog as soapbox. Manikandan , who blogs under the alias Geekgardener, says he has 600 members on his forum and receives about 30 to 40 emails a day from people inquiring after his posts on hydroponic techniques , potting options and so on. "I usually advise beginners to start with one plant, say spinach or coriander, and tend to it until they're self-sufficient in its yield," says the Bangalorebased software engineer, whose kitchen sources from his terrace garden. "I haven't bought tomatoes in three and a half years," he claims. The engineer-gardener has even sold his surplus yield of beefsteak tomatoes and 18-inch long seedless cucumbers to the local supermarket and occasionally sells his produce in his office.

Thanks STS.
