I really enjoy your instructables! Do you have any knowledge for working with castor bean to make oil or emulsions? Most of the quality videos I find on the net are in Japanese or Sanskrit(?), not much in English. You seem like a capable person with vast knowledge, perhaps, you can help me or point me in the right direction. Many thanks!

Castor beans grow in our place in plenty. You can extract oil from the dried seeds by pressing as normally done with other nuts. There is no special technique involved.
In my childhood, we used this oil as laxative, as hair oil, for burning lamps and also in some cosmetics.
Here is the picture of pure castor oil (not branded). This I got for one of my future projects

I f you have made it recently, the initial gas produced will not burn. you need to release the initial gas minimum three to four times before you get burnable gas

Dear Sir,

How are you? Hope you are fine.

My name is Pramod Singh and I am from Mumbai. I used to work abroad but will be on leave for 6 months. So within this period I would like to try farming as I am very passionate and enthusiast about it.

I have taken 1 acre of land on lease in Konkan (Near Chiplun) in Maharashtra. I am planning to grow Bitter gourd as well as Ridge gourd.

After googling, I came across your blogs in which you mentioned some people that you can to send documents of step by step procedure to do farming of Ridge gourd and bitter gourd.

Since I am a beginner, It would be helpful if you could provide your expertise in this respect. Can you please send me step by step procedure for Bitter gourd and ridge gourd.

Your earliest reply will be highly appreciated.

Thanks and regards,

Pramod Singh
