My daughter with a duck at my friend’s farm near our village. This really kindled our interest to start raising ducks. But first we need to dig a small pond. These grown-up ducks cost Rs.6500 a pair. The ducklings about Rs.500 a pair.
Green trunk coconut trees?! Creeping fig (Ficus Pumila) is usually grown on walls but the Gardner at Radisson resort has grown these on coconut trees. BTW, these are my favourite creepers and planting 30 saplings to cover the walls of the farmhouse.
A short video that shows the new flower saplings I purchased for the farm. Picked these up from an amazing nursery farm on the East Coast Road in Chennai. Planning to plant these next week.
Thanks to the huge demand created by the rapid growth of apartments and gated communities, the nursery owners are making a killing. There’s this one particular nursery that deals mainly in fully grown trees. In this video, you can look at the fully grown, ready-to-plant, fox tail palms at Rs.3500 per tree.

It was dusk and the workshop session for the day is done. But he was called in on popular request to address the audience. Even though he was recovering from an illness, he gladly obliged.
He is an good crowd puller. Has a huge repertoire of jokes and analogies and puts them to good use. — at Vanagam.
