Visiting a nursery in India

I know some of you are wondering where I have been for the past couple of months. I was visiting my 87-year-old mother in India. I didn't want to be bothered with blogging, facebook or twitter. I just wanted to spend some quality time with my mom. I wanted to share some photos from India with you all.

When I travel to India, I try to visit local farmer's markets, nurseries and farms. Sometimes I want to keep in touch with the food trends in India. Other times, I want to know how farming trends are changing in India with the globalized world.

While travelling on this visit, I came across a town called Kadiam near Rajamundry, home of over 600 nurseries which supply plants to all over India. For people who are avid gardeners, it feels like heaven to walk into these magnificent nurseries to see all plants. I was drooling over all the plants that I can't grow in California.

Mango plants. 

It was very painful to leave all these plants. Too bad it is illegal to bring biological material into California!
