No mate, apartment living for us. Of course when we come back to the village we will have gardens galore!

I hadn't watched this video since I uploaded it. It was a massive undertaking clearing the land.

W T F happened to the rainy season? By my count, we've only had
significant rain once in the last 8 days. While we'll never have a water
shortage down at the river, I'm spending most of my time keeping what's
been planted alive rather than continuing to improve the property.
Rain, please!

About a month ago, I noticed a young cat hanging around our land.
I've given it some chicken to eat here and there, so it's started to
warm up to me a bit, but still keeps at least a 5 meter distance at all
times. Earlier today, it was in a fight to the death with a snake. I
happened to catch some of it on video.

And the winner was......

The garden areas down at the Chi River are well-defended these days, largely because of our Labrador, Trooper. At 7.5 months old and 33 kilos, he could cause far more damage than a squadron of squawkers. Therefore, the new task is protecting our agricultural creations from him. One example is the large fish pond which Trooper usually goes straight for upon arrival at the river. The aquatic plants we used to have all perished during his savage attacks. Therefore, I created a plant-free area for him to play in and put some new plants near the Jackfruit Tree which is the middle of the pond. I'm pleasantly surprised the young tree survived the construction of the pond as I severed a handful of roots, one of which was a good 2 inches in diameter. It not only survived, but it's now producing fruit for the first time!
