    Vanilla Farm in Thailand, really interesting thing. Are you sure there is a market in Thailand for that? Or you want to Export it only?

    Good guess, guy said he had to leave for 4 months.
    Left a Thai in-charge, bet your shirt, only time the Thai visited the vanilla was to sell the pump or other bit of gear.

    Looking nice...
    Glad to know that you stayed with it, AP!

    Takes time and persistence. [for those of us that might be looking to pursue cross-breeding vanilla]
    Best of luck...

    The project was doing well. The OPs marriage was not hence the selling of the property and house where the vanilla project was operating.

    ^ call me cynical, but that would've been my guess too. Edit to add: not suggesting you were guessing; I'm sure you know if you made that statement, Norts. Anyways, good luck to the fella, hope he gets out of it ok and didn't invest more than he could afford to lose.

    I know we are all different, different circumstances, etc, but I would not invest 1 baht in Thailand that I would not walk away from. I have a car, a house, I'll spend money on developing the family land - but it is not my pension, I don't need the money, and when the marriage fuks up the missus can have it all and fark off...
    How do I post these pictures???
