Missus is getting 150 baht a kilo for grasshoppers at the moment.

I'll try growing some of them.

You are planting avocados from seeds? I have heard that they will not bear fruiot when planted from seeds. It didn't make sense at the time.

Well the seeds for my potato tree didn't work either. Must be something to do with Thai soil. 555.

Thanks Owl, finally a well written and decent post. Quite a change on this forum. I hope we could have more posts like it. We might run into each other in Nong Khai or Udon Thani and never know it. We don't farm but live a great life in a Mekong village 20-30 minutes north of Nong Khai. My wife does have her trees and a small garden. She seems to have the green thumb. After long hours driving back and forth to work in big city traffic while living in the suburbs back in the home country, I really enjoy the village setting. I don't miss big city at all. I'm the only english speaking foriegner here and we seem to share similar village experiences. I'm really glad we don't have to fly to Bangkok once a year to the embassy anymore.  Nong Khai, Udon Thani, and Khon Kaen is big enough for me. Some of my wife's family have farms and I especially like to go pick rambutan. Eat one bag one. Eat one bag one.

If you're anywhere north of Nong Khai you're in Laos!

Unless the potato `tree` was a bit of a joke.🤔.No most soil can not be used for potatoes.Close to Chiang Mai it can be done.To hot in the daytime most other places.

I drive on highway 211 North, according to the sign, from Nong Khai while staying in Thailand all the way home. It's a little twisty here and there yet follows the Mekong on the Thailand side of the river. I never cross over the river to Laos. It's definitely not south, unless I'm going to Nong Khai, and definitely not Laos. Try staying on topic and not deflecting.  We have mapaholics now on the forum? Show me where I stated true north or as the eagle flies.  Besides, I wasn't quoting to you.

They will bear fruit but it will take at least 7-9 years ... I graft onto seedlings from a very heavy bearing tree and they fruit a year or two later .. I live in Northern NSW ... bushfire smoke heavy again today

Public Forum......And, I was thinking the exact same thing when you wrote north of Nong Khai.
