Coconut Milk Boost
August 2, 2019 10:59pm CST
Good morning everyone. Today is a very busy day for us as a family. It’s definitely not a chill weekend. After sweeping the 2 floors of the house I decided to give up on the ground floor as my hand was blistered from using the broom too much. Then the coconut tree caught my eye and I had an Einstein moment (light bulb next to my head). Hey! Why don’t we have some coconut milk for refreshments. It would be good to keep us hydrated. Coconut milk is better than water since they have the same component as our blood plasma. Since our coconut is short I didn’t even have to climb it. I just twirled the coconuts till they disconnect from the tree. The 4 coconuts I collected served 10 people with repeats and now we are ready to do more work! How’s your weekend going?

I don't know if the short coconut trees are of a different breed or if they are manually tweaked to be short in height. But its really tough to get coconuts from the tall ones and all I used to do as a kid to wait for one such to fall off so we friends could have a party.
I think ours is a hybrid. It does make it easier to consume as it’s easy to harvest. But here even the tall ones are consumable. Filipinos make a climb hole on the coconut stem and climb it. It’s just dangerous that way. Risk for falls and slips. When I was visiting Thailand, I saw an interesting way of harvesting coconuts. They are harvested using climbing monkeys! Now how cute is that? Although I wonder if that’s safe too if the monkey decides to be cheeky and throw the coconut directly on a person.
