Some how landed up in Ooty last Sunday, 19.01.2014. Was on a trip to Wayanad, and just for the fun drive up the 36 hairpins through Masinagudi drove to Ooty


Reached Ooty by 13:00 hours

@Laluks - First I would like to thank you, for such wonderful travelogues and pictures. I have been a silent admirer, watching all your posts and useful tips for tours. Many times I refer to your posts, and driving directions and trust me, the information is spot on. I have become your fan and you have been a huge motivating factor to join Team-BHP. I must appreciate your family here as well, they have been so supportive to your tours and the power puff girls really rock. Thank you Laluks, for everything on Team-BHP and looking forward to more such travelogues from you.

Thank you Atif for the kind words. I could not see the post till today, since I was quite busy with my little hobby these days

I got hooked on to farming in my own ways on my terrace. I never knew it was motivating to many like my travelogues till The Alternative editor called in to write for them something


Here's that story

Excellent idea, and appreciate what you have been doing do far. I didn't know that beet root leaves were edible!
BTW, any suggestions on good nurseries for seeds/plants? Which is the place in Ooty you visited? And in Bangalore...? Laalbagh?

Thanks.
Most of my plants are from Regional Agricultural Research Station, Wayanad. In Bangalore, I visit many nurseries for various stuffs, all are good in their own ways. I have not yet taken any from Lalbagh.

Laluks,

I am just curious to know, about any upcoming travelogue from you. I reckon, it has been a long time( Sorry if I have missed any new one), since you posted any new trip pics and details (love reading all your travelogues). let me know, if anything is cooking up, other than your new hobby (Home grown veggies).

No, I have not written any travelogues for a long time now. But yes, I have travelled and a lot is to be written on. Just waiting to get some time to pen them down

Thank You
Probably if I write all that down, it'd become Off Topic here. Do hunt me down in FB, we can discuss about the same. I have succesfully tried strawberries in Bangalore weather. Olives I am planning to, waiting to get a good source for the sapling/seed.

That is great news!!. So, there will be lots more fun, I guess. I will be glued to your travelogues, once you start a new thread, and obviously it would be a 5 star rating, as most of your threads have been so far.
start soon.

Laluks,

Looks like you have been out of action for a long time. I reckon you are busy with your new hobby (farming) these days, and don't have much time. Do let me know if any new travelogue is cooking at your end.

Out of action? No ways! The list of travels that are yet to be written are many. To give you a hint, there is also an international drive included

Farming takes quite a lot of my time, so also I had some renovation at home, and not to mention my work scenarios.

Will write them all for sure, I have to fork out the time
