Thailand

ThailandThailand

Most of Thailand has a “tropical wet and dry or savanna climate” type (Köppen’s Tropical savanna climate).[83] The south and the eastern tip of the east have a tropical monsoon climate.

Countrywide, temperatures normally range from an average annual high of 38 °C (100.4 °F) to a low of 19 °C (66.2 °F). During the dry season, the temperature rises dramatically in the second half of March, spiking to well over 40 °C (104 °F) in some areas by mid-April when the sun passes its zenith.

Southwest monsoons that arrive between May and July (except in the south) signal the advent of the rainy season (ruedu fon). This lasts into October and the cloud covering reduces the temperature again, with the high humidity experienced as ‘hot and sticky’. November and December mark the onset of the dry season and night temperatures on high ground can occasionally drop to a light frost. Temperatures begin to climb again in January. (Source: Wikipedia)

Harvest of Chilies

Besides of Bananas, Chilies are growing also very easy. Don’t have to do anything about it. Birds do the job of propagating. So they turn up at all kind of places in my garden. Though have to be quick to get the red chilies from the tree, otherwise the birds will eat them. The chilies […]

Harvesting bananas

One of my banana trees, the bananas were ready to harvest. Out of the few sets of bananas one was yellow and the birds started eating it. Once one set is yellow, the rest will be yellow as well even you take them of the tree. Cutting it down isn’t that easy as you don’t […]

Mango time in Thailand

The Mango tree in the garden in Bangkok is doing well again. We planted the tree about 10 years ago and only since the last 4 years is actually give mangoes. But it is doing that very well. Once and a while (maybe once a month) we give it some fertilizer that we made ourselves. […]

testing the Scythe

Last time I went to Holland I bought 2 blades of a scythe. I just put them in the suitcase. No problem. I think though it would give a little of an issue if you would put it in your hand luggage. Anyway, in Holland the are rather easy to get but I have never seen […]

New mulberry trees ready to move to the land

Growing some new mulberry trees in Bangkok in my garden. Just from sticks that I cut of from a bigger tree. They always do well. I think this tree is one of the easiest trees to multiply. (actually have done it many times before so we already have many trees on our land.) Just waiting […]

Growing coffee

When we bought the land, we found out that we have about 15 coffee bushes. About 5 of them are under a big tree. See the picture of my father at the base of the tree. Those in the shade of the tree give a lot of berries (both red and yellow). You can see […]
