Can be difficult farming anywhere in todays world.
I took a trip out and about today ( the two power cuts in the early morning had p****d me off).
First on the engender now is a trip in the countryside. Yesterday it was the beach! "Yes no electricity, so no fan and Wi-Fi,
I like to sit with the locals, and share a few beers or whiskeys. My lady keeps her dog out there. I don't think its fair to keep him at the bar, when he has so much freedom. Cute little fellow, but needs haircut.
A young lady I know, just disembarked from her boat. I asked her if she had a good catch? She would have not had a clue what I asked her. But she showed me her the fish of the day. (I think they are Red Snapper! but feel free to correct me). Five hours out to sea on a small Thai made plastic boat. I have seen her with less of a catch in the past. This was a good day for her, five bucks a kilo and she was heading to market.
On riding back from the countryside, approaching the small towns suburbs I caught sight of this little gem.
We have had many posts about this subject. It was enjoyable to see this way of farming on my doorstep. It helped too with the owner talking English. He showed me around the different stagers of plant growth, explaining how his hydro system worked. How much time he had put into the planning, and then building. I was impressed with is dedication and learning of the subject. He as regular customers at this stage. Now he says the daily work is too easy, so now he is extending.
Has we left with our fresh greens the heavens opened, forcing us to find shelter for a little time. At the very least on arrival at the bar, we now had electricity and wifi.
