Hey Gecko,

are those recent photos?

Looks really good :)

With the recent rains I'm suffering with an explosion of weeds and can only do a bit very early morning before the 40 degree C heat kicks in. So can't keep on top of it.

Your plot looks to be pretty open. If I don't fully enclose mine, it would all be destroyed by chickens and dogs.

Whereabouts are you? My seedlings would just burn up without shading.

Keep up the good work

Any balcony gardens to give me inspiration? I have long been considering some sort of vertical lettuce patch but never quite got round to it...

The vegetable garden is primarily a cool season activity for me, maybe a little rainy season too. The photos are from this past November - February.

No real problem with neighborhood dogs, although the compost piles sometimes attract them. Neighbor's chickens don't really bother the garden.

I've been toying with greenhouse/shade trellis ideas to extend the growing season. Anybody have any pictures of greenhouses/trellises of any kind, would love to see them.

Thanks.

Hi Pigeonjake:

Thanks for posting the pictures.

Are those beans you're growing on that wide mesh wiring the typical long green beans sold everywhere in Thailand?

That's a great idea for a trellis.

I have bananas, limes and Malaysian lemons growing in the back yard. Two patio orange trees and a mulberry tree in front each yielding a couple of jars of marmalade and jelly a year. Vegetables pose a problem as worms and snails eat eveything except the hot chilis. Underground grubs don't help either. I am thinking about treating the soil in my beds to kill the grubs and have screen cages built to protect the plants from every thing else. Anyone have any experience doing this? My first objective would be to grow a decent tomato. I have seeds from the USA for a half dozen varieties. Any helpful advice appreciated..

hi,

yes mate long bean, if you look at the picture on the right hand side you will also see long bean and cucumber growing up the duck run fence, i just plant them anywere they will climb, but when there was some wire left, well i just had to use it for them, its great, and easy to just pull up and move, good for long bean and cucumber,

great pics of your mate, if you look at our website and videos, you will understand why mine isnt as tidy as it should be, we have been that busy,

and you know we farm pigs,ducks,chickens and fish,,,lol, thats not mentioning the budgies, caneries and finches, pigeons ect,,lol,

but i do have some really great compost, my word it is good this year i cant wait for the corn to finnish so i can get this black gold into the soil,

i have a little L200 kabuta with a rotto tiller on it i bought it second hand for 50k it does all sorts round our farm,

only this morning i draged a yuka tree into our land that had fallen over in the winds and the owner said i could have it, that is now a border for a flower garden,,lol

i think this will turn into a nice thread, thank you for thinking of it

jake
