Photos of kitchen gardens

Recommended Posts

I've taken a few photos of my fig trees (see previous photos above). Now the plants seem to be doing much better than before. They're in a place that protects them from the full force of the sun at midday, but they get plenty of sun in the morning and late afternoon.

As can be seen, there are markedly more and healthier looking leaves this time. Unfortunately, the smallest plant - Ficus cariea Japan - didn't make it.

Great photos! Thanks for sharing.

My yard long beans aka tua fuk yaow are covered in tiny bugs (which in turn attract ants). Yours don't seem to have any. Do you spray your plants and if so, with what?

Hi Jake. Great photos. 

You say you've gotten "the hang of growing carrots" here. Would you mind giving me some advice on growing them in Thailand? 

All my attempts sofar have been in vain. I now grow them in a mix of peat, coir and rice husks in big plastic pots. Not ideal, but this seems to be working. I have no idea what the problem was last year but I assumed the ground was too hard for the roots to grow. 

Any advice you can give will be much appreciated.

You have not the nail on the head, they need loose soil,

We incorporate lots of pig poo and a little sand into the carrot patch,

Thanks. I hadn't thought of adding sand. I suppose a good helping of rice husks would also help to keep the soil loose. 

I'll try that when I get back home. 

At the moment this is my set up... not great, it's working.

A few new photos to help keep this thread alive. 

 

The figs are coming along well. As somebody else on the farming forum has already mentioned, it takes the rainy season to really get figs to grow.

Which fig does the best in Thailand? I ate a few so far (bought from shops or markets) but they were far from great like the Greek ones can be.

But i've seen 20-30 different varieties of figtree's for sale so which ones are your favorits to grow in thailand?
