Well, not exactly. It is my blog that is moving. Moving to a self hosted setup.
Ever since I started this blog, life has been very interesting. Every day is exciting. I get to meet so many wonderful people through this blog. In fact, there is a beautiful virtual community that got created. I check my blog every day for new people, comments, questions or answers. Not a single day goes by without all these.
Thanks for being such a wonderful crowd and If not for the motivation and curiosity shown by you all, this blog wouldn’t have been possible at all.
As of now, this blog is associated with wordpress.com. While wordpress.com is such a wonderful place for bloggers to have their blog, there are few limitations as well. There is not a lot of freedom in terms of features. Hence I decided to move to a self hosted setup. So what does this mean to all of us? How are readers impacted?
The transition is very transparent to the readers. In the coming days, I will be making that transition. Once the transition is complete, I have lot of stuffs in store for everyone. Trust me!

Hopefully All of you are on the truck!
Hop on with me. Lets move forward!.
That’s cool. Looking forward to all the new stuff 🙂
That is great progress! Looking forward to even more awesomeness on the new site. All the best GG!
I also had a request.. is it possible for us to see what can be sown each month at a glance. I know you keep posting it, but searching at some future point of time did not seem to work for me.
Thanks a lot Asha for the wishes and the motivation.
I totally agree with you on the searching part, its painful.
I am working on a google calendar and will post it asap.
Thanks for the suggestion.
You are true. Reading ones post on blog or twitter is kinda addiction but same is with the core i.e. gardening. Thanks to rains, my house plants are competing with plants of Banglore or Calcutta(suddenly money plant’s leaves are big in size,wish it could be associated with flow of money), but vege ones are lil worried. I have planted few mum’s yesterday. Basically I am enthu abt greenery, whether its house plants or vege or floral.
Not very tech savy but hope won’t find any problem while you are moving……….
Let me know if money plants’ lush growth translates to money, I will get few 100s of them in my garden ;).
Talking about mums, I have 2 mums Pink and Orange Red blooming like crazy.
I am trying my best to make the transition smooth. Hopefully you wont find any problem.
Congratulations on your growth! You certainly deserve even more. However, I hope you are not moving to Afghanistan or some such location as the picture seems to suggest. Fantastic photograph. How did you come to lay your hands on it? Regards & wishing your blog even faster progress in the days to come.
Thank you so much for the wishes.
Ha ha!. It is definitely not the place what the picture suggests. Thanks. I was looking for a picture that best describes what I am trying to do(esp not missing a single reader of this blog). Me and my colleague were searching for different pics (searched “we are moving” in google) and got this pic. 🙂
Thanks for showing interest and constantly motivating.
Can’t wait to see the stuff you’ve promised to provide — you are such a treasure trove of knowledge and experience! Here’s an acknowledgment owed to you:
Thanks Jeanne for the mention in your blog.
Loved those marmande pics. Marmande is my favorite. Very juicy and tasty as well.
waiting impatiently for your next post…. its been quite a while 🙂
Thanks for showing interest. I agree! its been quite a while. I assure the delay wont be long.
My wishes for your new venture! You are truly an innovative person.
Greendreams, thanks for the wishes and nice words.
I had seen your blog only on last week while am searching on google what is hydroponics, I got all about this from your blog. You are an amazing guy. I go through all of your blog. Its really wonderful. One thing i find in you is you r a very good teacher of hydroponics. I will use your blog as reference guide in future and also recommend to my friends. really u amazed me.
While going through ur blog i had few doubts, first u mentioned about panchagavya and organic farming. Actually i am interested in organic farming. So can we grow plants hydroponically using panchagavya. Can we make achievement (not commercially) using organic manure in hydroponics.
I am a govt servant in kerala and i like agriculture. Its my only hobby to grow plants. My native is in palakkad.
Thanks for those nice words. Somehow your post, didn’t show up in the comments folder. Hence the delay. Using organic manure for hydroponics has been tried out. Chicken manure tea was used in one of the websites. It is feasible but an experiment has to be done.
Nice to hear about your hobby. Please do become a member in this forum and we all can learn.
I visit your website almost daily to check for updates. When are you moving? I don’t want to miss the bus 🙂 I get a lot of inspiration from your posts and am going to start growing vegetables soon.
Keep up the great work and please post soon.
I am planning to move this weekend. After the move there is lot of stuff waiting. I assure you all the best.
Thanks for the motivation.
All the best for the move 🙂
I have a Q. I have just one balcony and it is already crammed with flower and herb pots..so no space for veggies (much to my despair). However I have a large corridor and utility space where I receive plenty of light but absolutely no sun (thanks to the rooftop being covered). What are the kind of plants that I can have here? I’d be glad to shift some of my flower and foliage plants here to make space for veggies 🙂
Thanks for the wishes. For such shady spaces you can grow veggies like Palak, lettuce, methi and mint. You can also grow some root veggies but they will yield not so great sized roots but anything from our own garden is good. I am sure someday the veggies plants are going to compete against your flower plants.
Hey GG, thanks. Am going to start by moving my mint pot to this covered area and see what happens. If that works, then the rest follow
When do we get to see your new site?
Any idea where i can get calcium nitrate & epsom salt at Bangalore? is there any specific brand name i have to ask for?
i am starting some hydroponic experiments as suggested in the internet, with miraclegro + calcium nitrate + epsom salt as the nutrient solution.
Awaiting your reply…
Calcium nitrate is availabe in NewTharagupet. You can just ask for calcium nitrate. Epsom salts can be found in medical shops. Where do you plan to get MiracleGro? is it available in Bangalore?.
i already have MiraclGro. got it at the Lalbagh show this year, from one of the stalls – not sure if it is the “original” one… anyway giving it a try.
Thats nice. I am just curious. What is its NPK value ?
im really sorry GG, it doesn’t have any NPK value written on the label!! 😐 thats the reason i said im not sure if its the “original” one.
That’s all right. Do try it out and let us know how it works.
