Our Small Farm

We have a small farm planted with lots of fruit trees. It is located in another town, far away from our house. I inherited this farm from my parents. My father was the one who planted all these fruit trees such as lanzones, jackfruits, mangopsteen, and some coconut trees. Hopefully, the lanzones trees will bear fruits again this year. We are planning to plant more fruit trees such bananas, rambutan, mangoes, pomelo and papayas. By the way, the photo was taken by my youngest daughter. How big is your farm?

@Macarrosel O now I know, we have also . I just eaten lanzones few months ago. We called langsat, now I notice they belong to the Lan family, you see. I think Langsat is older then Lan zones. You agree

I only have a smallish garden - no fruit trees. Is your farm near to where you live.

@jaboUK Yeah, I go there if we have time but not too often but if the fruit trees bear fruits then we go there more often.

It's good you have many fruit trees in your farm. Now you're reaping what your father planted :)

Oh you have mangosteen? Such a nutritious fruit. You can still plant a lot in your farm even on the ground for cover like legumes or corn, etc.to maximize it, but it needs a lot of labor.

Yeah, it needs a lot of work. Good thing my husband hired someone who will get the weeds in the ground and clean the area.

Do you sell your fruit? It looks very tropical to me. I don't live on a farm. We're not farmers, but educators.

Yeah, sometimes we sell our fruits if we can harvest more than our consumption. I don't live in the farm too. This farm is far from our house. We just visit the farm to see if the fruit trees are bearing fruits. I'm not a farmer too, I was a banker hahaha. Thanks DianneN.

I live near the city but I want to live in the countryside and plant fruit trees. I like to breathe fresh air from the leaves of the trees. My land is so far from where I reside.

we have a lot that is owned by my grandma but we don't have the money to finance it. lucky you have those trees, you have endless supply of fruits.
