    Well as winter winds down and the ground dries out those little thorn weeds start dropping their seeds for next year. I hate those fkrs. So does my FIL and the dogs. We just had 4 days of good rain which was perfect as it brought them all up to the surface. My last job of today was to mow this area. I drop the mower to its lowest setting which of course means I have to walk the area for rocks and hunks of wood and whatever else is around as when they hit the blade it is loud.



    I used the bag to catch as many seeds/thorns as I can and every year I am seeing less and less. Its never perfect but not to bad. If left unchecked that entire are would be brutal to walk. Soon this area will be a dry desert

    ^Can we get a picture of said thorns? Nice looking garden Stumps....we are still in the planning stages of our retirement home on my partners land in Surin. She has a nice 1 and a bit rai plot near the city centre but we are just thinking maybe we want something a lot bigger, you know something you can really walk around.

    What are your thoughts on taking care of your garden? In hindsight would you have preferred something a lot smaller to take care of?

    As requested



    Green state. They grow low along the ground



    Dry state. When dry they stick in everything. Dogs get them stuck in their paws and fur and of course they stick in shoes and flip flops and they get everywhere.

    I really enjoy keeping our place up. Its relaxing and I just take a section at a time and do my thing. I love being outdoors so I work at all times of day even though my wife and FIL retreat to the shade and fans and watch...

    Of course land ownership and upkeep is an individual preference. I grew up on a lot of land so what I have now is manageable and now after 6+ years I have it somewhat on autopilot if you will. It is not too big where its just a wild hunk of land. As time has gone on, all the tree/shrub and grass planting we have done has matured making it nice and comfortable. We have lots of fruit trees which my wife and FIL love and I have my resort pool side where I relax albeit I keep up the entire property. I am glad the "Back Forty" as I call it now stays green for at least 9 months of the year. Having it green keeps things cooler and the dust and dirt down during summer.

    Always enjoy the issan threads. 14 years living in lao makes me think Lao and isan folk are very similar. And genuine folk

    Decided to go do the wife's passport renewal today in CM. Amazing a MONSTER facility and only 5 people. Wife was in and out in 15 minutes.



    Did me a bit of replenishment for the liquor cabinet and fridge



    Stopped at the big nursery area and picked up some plants for the Pool bar area. Wife picked up half a dozen more orchids



    Now relaxing enjoying a beautiful early evening



    My bird buddy is watching her nest and keeping an eye on me
