Raised Garden Beds [6 Months Update]
You can view the original raised garden beds video here.
In this part of our land we have planted many more fruit trees including banana, papaya and mango in between the raised garden beds. Rice was also planted before the rainy season and grew very well which was a first for me as I’ve never seen the process from seedling to plate before.
We also have a lotus pond with tilapia fish in it. The fish are a great source of protein and the stalks of the lotus are also eaten in Thailand. Personally I like to see the flowers in bloom on a morning.
We have also constructed a small family restaurant known as Thinglish Kitchen since the last video. Where ever possible the restaurant uses fresh produce from our gardens and aquaponic set up in the meals that are served daily. We do not use any chemical, herbicides or pesticides on our food so everything is fresh and healthy, just as Mother nature intended it to be.
We collect rainwater from the roof of the restaurant in two ongs. The stored water is used on the gardens during the dry season.
Also in this video, we discover a mulberry tree being eaten by some big fat caterpillars.
