I visited a friend's farm a few weeks ago. He was so ecstatic in inviting us because this is the first time he did a farm like this. There is a pond and above it are mango trees. He has been trying to incorporate his hobby researches in these undertakings. Despite the long travel of 5 hours from the city, i went there. I also slept for the night to give the driver some rest in between, and also to maximize our conversations.
The pond is stocked with fish during the dry season, he intends to also put in shrimps during the rainy months. Water level is low now that is not suitable for the shrimps. But it is the shrimps that i love better. So i have to be back next time.
The aerator equipment at rest.
The sunset shot on the pond, with a shaggy chick appreciating the sunset too.
The mango trees are also laden with fruits, my friend was able to induce off-season fruiting with his concoction of strategies, organically, without use of chemicals. I was given a basketfull of the harvest to bring home. And that is on top of unusually lengthy conversations that binges on any topic under the sun!
