Bindu says that fruits like oranges and strawberries grow best in cooler regions. It is difficult to cultivate them in the environment of Kerala. However, he decided to try his luck. Idea done. By the way, oranges can adapt to warmer temperatures. We have got its plantation done. Due to non-plantation of fruit trees on the ground, the development of these hamlets is limited but in good quality range. They only grow to an optimum level.

Bindu, who is doing organic farming, says that neem oil, soap, vinegar, or soda powder can be mixed together and then sprayed on the plants to prepare the insecticide. Fruits and vegetables are cultivated in various containers and grow bags. He said that fruits and vegetables cannot be grown in bags for a very long time. In such a situation, he gradually started planting the plants in containers. She tells that apart from buying expensive pots from the market, gardening can also be done in things like plastic paint buckets, thermocol boxes kept in homes. Bindu says that the plants are watered twice a day.
