I liked Pratap's opening statement. I would like to read it as - "I am a farmer and a son-of-the-soil / close to vegetation/nature and some in this crowded concrete jungle as a s/w engineer." If that is not the case, this is true in my case. Welcome and as camaroon said keep writing people. Lets encourage each other. camaroon did you get the solenoid/timer setup done? With my last vacation minor-disaster need to do something at my place as well.

Jeev,

       You are abosolutely correct! I am poor in english, that is the reason i am writing shortly.

Basically I am a farmer. I used to work in cultivation in my school days with my grandpa. I was seperated from nature due to my education.It was very unfortunate that i haven't learnt cultivation from my grandpa. Today, I am a software engineer in chennai.But i always feel like "lost some thing".

 

       Going back to nature...

 

I am planning to write about my little garden and my gardening experience in this thread.

I request all the gardeners to read and give your suggestion/guidelines to me.
