    I was sitting at the dinner table having a great time when I realised almost everything on the table was from our land.

    Sticky rice from last year's crop
    Chicken legs from our chickens
    Coriander, dill and basil from our herb garden
    Kradon leaves with the chilli
    Water mimosa from the fish pond
    Dancing prawns from the fish farm

    Haven't even touched on the jack fruit, ginger, coconuts, three varieties of fish, mango, rose apples and all the assorted weeds that are eaten in Isaan. I did opt for the dark beer Lao over the home made Ya-dong that the others were drinking.

    Good choice I'd say but all the other stuff leaves nothing to wish for. Enjoy your homegrown healthy food.

    They are pretty much free range with a little bit of mash morning and afternoon. Have a couple of handsome roosters to keep the girls fat and happy. :smile2:

    You are only just down the road, there is no excuse for not dropping by and checking out the operations.

    During the week, I'm in Ubon whereas on the weekend, I'll head out to the farm in Phiboon. Where are you located?

    I would probably see birds as pets. I've lived as a vegetarian before.
