Last week, my mum took us to visit her Fruits Farm. We set off early in the morning as to avoid the Sun heat, around 8am. When we got there my mum got the kids busying at feeding the fish with some fish food pellets. The problem was that there was only one trowel between them. Ethan & Evelyn could not wait and just used their bare hands as a trowel.
When the kids emptied the fish food bucket, we strolled around the fruits farm and discovered that one of the main fruit grown there was lime. Lime is a becoming more and more in demand for a healthy lifestyle alternative. Here, mum shown Ethan how to pick the ripped lime off the lime tree. He was very good at it. He could totally work there for his Summer job when he is a little grown up I guess – haha 😉
Amongst, many other fruits we stumbled upon mangos and star gooseberry. If you are intrigued of what star gooseberry are then I have written a little blog post here for you to find out more.
I’ve also learnt that land is so precious and every inches are used. These concrete tunnels along the gravel road are used as plant buckets for housing small tree such as lime and other herbs.
Ethan finally got his solo water ride with his Great-Uncle, as he irrigate water on to the cultivated crop-stripe of lands on both side of his floats. #ExplorerKids If you would like to see the black and white version please pop over to my Instagram.
Whilst Ethan was on his ride – I was able to capture this image of my mum and Evelyn stood side by side. I love this photo of them together. You could see that Evelyn is a little jealoous of Ethan as she is too small for the water ride. Bless her.
When we got back, Ethan wanted to taste the lime that he had picked. So I cut it in half and got some salt. His impression of the sourness was so immensely funny! I guess – not long now until he’ll be doing it with vodka. Haha
I have also saved the fourth sequence photo of this on: My Sunday Photo: Lemon Squeezie. Please pop by to see his reaction.
Our morning has been a good one and for lunch mum took us to another floating market – this one is not in Bangkok and so there are no foreigners (Farlangs) at all. But this is for another post entirely which I will post to you soon.
Have you been to a fruit farm before? Where did you go?
