    Can't get enough passionfruit in any practical application.

    Next time you're mulling around the kitchen and looking for something different, try a good banana bread fused with passionfruit.
    Heavenly.

    I have been commanded by the wife to spread her joy at discovering a whole bunch of large and good quality purple eggplants she didn't know she had. This small garden has been surrounded by netting to reduce pests getting in and having lifted the netting today she found these and a ton of good looking green chilies growing. Apart from grilling them on a BBQ I'm at a loss as to how to make such an amount of eggplants edible. Any suggestions?

    For the small purple tropical variety, which break down easier and loose their meaty composition when over cooked - suggest to simple grill the thickly sliced gems over coals, accompanied by a brushed on flavoured oil of your choice or one of the numerous varieties of Prik Nam Pla. Don't over cook 'em...

    As you might know, the more common types of eggplant used around are of the Thai/Khmer greenish-white round shaped variety - more complex and hearty, as it doesn't break down too easy.
    Could be debated, as they're also know to be called a distant hybrid of the Japanese White Eggplant - hence, their colour and shape.

    A super vegetarian dish, looks a bit complicated but after the first time it just gets easier and better. This is a good recipe with tips. A hit with beers.

    Baba Ganoush.

    So after kicking me out of the butterfly and bee garden the wife planted some climbing roses that unfortunately are thriving. She has tended to let them grow wild and encroach onto the level 1 balcony. After one too many times of me being ripped across the ankle, calf, forearm and bridge of the nose with barbs I made some pretty concerted noise about the perils of inappropriate planting and ripping these out and replacing with rose bushes. End result was I was ignored. So we reached a compromise of sorts, I agreed to provide a support for the runners and she agreed nothing would be allowed to encroach on the balcony.

    I designed a support with a rope lattice and got the guy who build the carport and a few other things in for a quote. Wanted 1,800 baht which I was quite okay with. Came back a few days later and installed it. We had some reasonable quality light nylon rope lying about and in the end it was only half a meter short, so we made do. Wife then spent some time rearranging and tying the runners off. Think it will be okay.

    Regards your drainage issues, clearly you are prepping to ensure there are no areas where water collects but its worth considering that where the waters migrates to will be more damp than other areas in the wet season - roots generally don't like it too wet so i'd think about what you are planting in those ares - obviously some plants thrive in soil that has a higher water content.
    Are u farming in Thai?

    Decided to replace the vegetable garden adhoc timber and bamboo shade structures with PVC pipe. First one installed cost approx 600 baht in total. Forgot to get a before picture of it so that is the next one to replace. Will probably make four modules for the long garden and attach them to each adjacent one once installed. Wife is very happy with the first one. My brother is here at the moment so was a boon in getting it made and in position. Will need to make the others basically in situ since without him cannot carry from front of house under the carport around to the back garden.
