My father doesn't do things by half measures. Even for a backyard gardener, his little farm is showroom perfect. Before he grows anything, he will spend days preparing the patch, from building raised beds to conditioning the soil. That is the reason why his crops are always so lush and bountiful.
Each time I visit, I find new crops growing in his garden. There are rows and rows of Thai Basil as usual. Some yam plants and sunflowers managed to sneak in there as well.
A large vine (pumpkin or some kind of squash) is sprawling over the pond enclosure.
He's growing lady's fingers and brinjal too.
