Trees (part 1)

We also grow fruit trees in our farm. Here are some photos, more to come...


These are latexless jackfruits (langka).


And this is a Longkong (lanzones) tree.

Other trees include different varieties of mangoes and rambutan, chico, durian, mangosteen, pomelo, oranges, and many more. I will try to take more pictures next time.
We've never used chemicals in our farm. All of our fruit trees are grown organically.
You are very welcome to see for yourselves.

Great Blog for the weekend farmers. Would appreciate it if you can do it on a regular basis. Have a two hundred square meter garden in the city and would love to try what you wrote here (especially the vermicompost) and vegetable garden. Planning to plant the mongo bean and try to replicate what you did. More power. -- Patrick

Hi there guys, glad to hear your into organic farming. I'm writing for the obvious reason that I want to have tips how to have one. I do have a small space here at home in Quezon city where a caimito and two malunggay trees stand, which happen to be old. We have not hard to maintain potted plants so theres a space in the plant boxes under the trees that would be ideal to add tomatoes or kangkong or ampalaya etc. I'm not really sure if the soil is alright. I need your advice and tell me what to do first. I want to get into farming right away, thanks for your time.

Thank you very much breathe for visiting our blog. We do have several mangoes and other fruit trees. We do not use any chemicals on them, we just wait for them to give us fruits since we are not into commercial production. We do apply some techniques like prunning, water stressing, etc. to help in fruit production. We noticed that some mangoes react better to this kind of practice. Most of our mangoes are Golden Queen and Chokanan (varieties).
