Roof/Kitchen Gardening- Review

Roof/Kitchen Gardening

Roof/Kitchen gardening is a passion for everyone now-a-days. Here is some information I gathered about Kitchen gardening from a recent training.

  •  For gardening we can use the grow bags, pots, containers etc., 
  • we need to grow medium weight of garden in the roof.
  • Then we need seed materials/plants, quality water irrigation system and drainage, Fertilizer.
  • While making the gardening the thing we should remember are sun, light and water.
  • Best time for watering is  9-10 in the morning , and  4-5 in the evening
Watering should be one time a day during winter. Water the plants twice a day during Summer. And don't put excess water than what is required for the tree.

For Composting use closed bins/tubs.
Take a bin add two times of soil, then dry leaves, then daily cut vegetable/fruit peels, then the fourth layer use curd for composting or Worms.
 Continue the same process till the bin fills to the 3/4th then cover it add water daily for composting. Open the lid for 30 minutes maximum a day.

  • Nutrition to the plants: Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Sulfur.

Some of the Organic matter which can be repeated every 15 days for the growth of the plants and do not exeed the level.

Importance of Folic Acid Supplements During Pregnancy to Prevent Cleft

Importance of Folic Acid Supplements During Pregnancy to Prevent Cleft

Folic Acid supplements are the synthesized form of naturally occurring Vitamin in the B-Complex group. Folic Acid supplements are believed to reduce the chance of cleft occurrence in babies. It is suggested that women take folic acid supplements at a pre-conception stage – while they are planning for pregnancy, and during the pregnancy stage (in limited quantity, according to their doctor’s prescription) to prevent multiple birth defects in babies.
What are the sources of Folate/Folic Acid?
Folate, the naturally occurring folic acid, can be found in foods like leafy greens, spinach, cereals, citrus fruits, broccoli, lettuce, mushrooms, beans, etc.
Folic Acid is also available in synthesized form as supplements (pills) or in multi-vitamin tablets.
Is it required to take Folic Acid supplements separately?
Not always. Only if tests show a deficiency in folate or during conditions like pregnancy where the intake of more folate has been shown to be beneficial in reducing birth defects in babies, folic acid supplements may be prescribed by your doctor.
What are the benefits of consuming Folic Acid supplements?
For pregnant women, and for women of child-bearing age planning to get pregnant, it is beneficial to consume folic acid via supplements as it can prevent birth defects in babies like neural tube defects, aid in proper spine/brain development, reduce the chances of cleft lip/cleft palate occurrence, etc. More information on this topic is available on this page.
Folic acid is also useful in the betterment of other medical conditions like kidney diseases, high-levels of homo-cysteine in blood, stroke, vision/hearing loss, etc.
Folic acid supplements can sometimes be prescribed to reduce the side effects of other medicines/drugs like methotrexate.
How can Folic Acid supplements be consumed?
Folic Acid is available as pills and can be directly consumed via mouth. This is the most common way of taking folic acid supplements. Folic acid supplements can sometimes be applied directly to the skin to treat gum problems, or they can be given via a needle (injection) for treating certain medical conditions.
How much of Folic Acid supplements can one consume?
Folic Acid supplements and their quantity is generally recommended by a Physician/Doctor and patients are advised to stick to the levels suggested by their medical practitioners.
Generally, 200 to 500 mcg of Folic Acid is suggested per day for pregnant women and women in pre-conception stage who are planning pregnancy shortly. Over consumption of folic acid may lead to side effects.
Is it important to take Folic Acid before pregnancy?
Since most birth defects happen within the first 30-40 days of child growth in the womb, it is better to start taking folic acid supplements at the pre-conception stage itself. If you are planning to get pregnant, it is a good idea to start taking folic acid supplements after consulting with a doctor.
Folic acid not only reduces the chances of occurrence of cleft lip/palate, but it also reduces the chances of occurrence of more serious birth defects in brain/spinal cord like neural tube defects. Some believe that folic acid can even reduce the chances for miscarriages and pre-mature child births.
Whom do I consult for Folic Acid supplement prescription?
You can consult your doctor and he/she might refer you to the appropriate specialists. Or you can also consult the experts of Anamaya Indo Pacific who are running a multi-centre cleft prevention program in India – especially in Chennai and Tamil Nadu. Anamaya is an NGO led by Dr. Shreekala, a dentist by profession, who collaborate with a team of medical professionals committed to the cause of prevention of birth defects in India.
You can visit Anamaya Indo Pacific website and Anamaya Indo Pacific Facebook page to get more information about cleft prevention/cure. You can also contact them using the address/phone no. information available in their contact us page.

Chetpet Eco Park

Chetpet eco park

Chetpet Eco Park located near Kilpauk. We went for a boat ride there, but we found that there were a few more attractions within the campus.

There is an entry ticket of Rs.25 each. Camera and Food are not allowed inside the park. We have to handover those at the ticket counter.

There is a small eatery near children's park. We can have some corn, chat or some other snack. In the front yard there is a larger food court having both Vegetarian and Non vegetarian food. We found Pizza, Ice creams and few Chat item also.

We found many 3D paintings there and sculptures of a few birds and animals too. You can take pictures using your phone. There is a big place to walk and some benches are there to sit.

First we went to have a ride in the boat. They charge Rs.59 per adult. We went around the lake nearly for half an hour. We saw some ducks coming out of the water and getting inside.

The stairs that lead to the boat were quiet difficult to board due to the steep slope. When we asked for an alternative way, they said they were building proper stairs with steps and that is expected to be ready by January.

Then we went to the 3D show. Charges were Rs.30 for a 15 min show.

We are the only two when we watched the show and we sat in the front row. We waited nearly 10 to 15 min as they were waiting for others to join.

There is a walkway around the lake. Walking around it, we found a children's park which occupies a small place and has few games to play. In the wall there were some 3D paintings which looked like an aquarium and some cartoon images were also drawn over it.

We spent almost 4 hours there, and for the most part we enjoyed our visit. Some construction was going on when we went - they were building a globe-shaped building, perhaps for housing an aquarium.

Toy train @ Chennai Rail Museum

Toy Train

We went to Chennai rail museum last week. We enjoyed the toy train second time as we went there last year also. But this time we went in the toy train late evening - at 6.40 pm when the train was filled with people. 

We ha full fun at that time. Many took pics and selfie in the train. And the sound of the train was good as it gave real goods train effect. 

The train went around twice. When it got into the tunnel it was a nice experience. Many kids and few ladies shouted as an echo for the sound that comes from the engine. If the driver had used the horn more it would have been more fun - I feel. In other places, the train mostly moves silently. 

Toy train timings on weekdays: 11.10 A.M, 12.10 A.M, 01.10 A.M, 02.40 P.M, 03.40 P.M, 04.40 P.M, )5.40 P.M. Weekends: In addition to the above, 06.40 P.M, and 07.40 P.M.
