Your photos give me the drive to stay the last days here on the project in Taiwan after full 20 month of nonstop work
As soon I leave the quarantine 13.11. in Pattaya, nothing can stop me and I will visit some land offers in Isaan (mainly around Udon and Mahrsarakham)
Watching your farm and all the plants growing is really awakening a strong drive in me to lay down the contract next year and leave the rat race behind me.
I can see myself clearly in the morning with a coffee in my hand, making a plan for the day and shedding a tear of delightedness telling myself never to go offshore again, never leaving my wife again, taking her hand and walk over the land, our land.
Offshore jobs pay well but do they really?
Selling one pig, one egg and one fruit grown on my home not to a much better price?
Don't worry my pension is more than safe and I do not want to post emotional garbage but completed a task like erecting a million dollar wind turbine which I handover to the customer or growing successfully one single tree, the latter seems to me way more fulfilling.
Your posts and pictures are just that what I want to see and leaving no question behind...
Cheers and keep them coming

I have been through your post more than twice and it really dig your progress.
I would like to know some details:
- The little excavator, how much you pay for a day rent?
- Straw bales, how do they perform by now. Suppressing weeds, how much sq.meter can you cover with one and how good do they decompose I mean in special
- You wrote that you pay about 1$ the bale, is it 30 baht or 20 baht.
Most land we got offered is around Udon, hence if you order straw again we could make a bulk order together if that would benefit the price, a few years ago we paid 20 baht a bale
using them on Pattaya Bike week as seating in our tent.
Last: You wrote you will never live there, how far away do you live and how do you avoid that your chicks and ducks not end up on another one's BBQ? Including a free Fruit Salad as
I am in Quaratine now the 4th day and hope Isaan is open for travel after I am done here..
