Self reliance in vegetables - Part 2This has reference to my post, "A small step towards self reliance in vegetables". The project taken up by our Residents' Association is showing good results. All residents who joined in the production process are giving successful reports. Some varieties of the plants have already started reproduction. Benda (ladies finger), chilli and beans (thuvara) have already given yields. All those who joined the campaign are very happy and are coming forward to introduce more items in their vegetable groups.
In addition the some of the elderly people who were sitting idle and feeling dejected have rekindled their enthusiasm for working. This naturally is improving their health conditions. What I feel, in general, is that this attempt from the Association's side was a positive one. More families are now coming forward to join this campaign.
