Just Joined today. I am excited about sharing information here is a little info  about me.


I live in the Philippines  and have  a 400 sq. foot plot of raised bed  garden 7 rows and 2 square foot gardens and working on 25, 5 gallon containers to complete the garden.  I have had good luck on most Asian vegetable staying mostly organic.

  I enjoy with  experimenting various  forms of Organic  Fertilizers and Pest control

 I made to 55 gallon drum Compost tumblers they work great and only takes a few months to have rich compost

Thank you

How do you do it.  I spent 6 months in Palawan and couldn't get anything to grow. Two cherry tomato plant and some pitiful kale.  Got 2 cukes off a vine.

Newbie Empty I am in Thailand

Post  rrbeckn on Tue Jun 10, 2014 3:26 am

I read your story on gardening in the Phillippinnes.  I believe that here in Northeast Thailand must be similiar growing conditions.  I have to admit that I have had terrible luck here trying to grow veggies.  I am going to try the sfg method and see how it goes, any advice will be welcome.

Newbie Empty Vegitables in the Philippines

Post  Wefisher on Tue Jun 10, 2014 10:16 am

Mostly I work the Soil.  My Garden is about 1000 meters from the Sulu Sea.  Hence all sand.   I brought in bags and bags of dirt to mix with the sand in raised beds. Added Mulch and compost. I use a lot of home vegetable and fruit scraps in my compost   tumblers.  Due to the warm temperatures I find a can produce a nice rich compost in about 1.5 to 2 months.  I plan to buy a  leaf  /blower / Vacuum / mulcher.  This will speed up the process some. I also use cow manure I will also try pig and chicken manure sparingly.

I grow Okra, Bitter Mellon, Long Beans, White Radishes, Egg Plant, Sweet Potatoes, a leafy veggie Kankong, and Squash

I am looking for property to extend my operation.

The only thing I can tell why my garden works is the right amount of Moisture, Sun,  I  just joined but find this site is great everything you need to know is here.

Welcome to you both, Bill & RRBecken!

You'll find several people in hot, humid areas on here as well as coastal regions.  I'm sure they can give you some great advice.

Newbie Empty composting

Post  rrbeckn on Thu Jun 12, 2014 8:48 am

I would be interested in how to make a composter using a 55 gal barrel.  The first year I was here I had great luck with tomatoes.  It was a variety called money maker and I had tomatoes for months.  Since then I can not get any thing to grow not even the money maker tomatoes.  I planted Thai peppers and got a great batch and the next year nothing. I made the bugs happy.  Just some more thoughts on gardening.

Sounds like you have the same problem I had in PI.  I think it is lack of nutrients. Vermiculite and peat are not available, although I used vermiculite as a packing material for some boxes I shipped.   I bought some compost and had very limited success.  None of the stems of plants thickened up enough to support the plant well and the plant could only support 1 fruit at a time. 

I didn't have access to manure and I think that's what is needed.  Plenty of green for compost, but not enough brown and no manure.  My next trip I'm going to see if I can find manure.
