Alastair has invested a lot of effort in slowly building up the garden here in camp. Over the years, he has taken particular interest in a variety plants and their upkeep in this tropical garden. Alastair employs a local man, named PaKarim, whom you may have remembered from my ramblings about Apple and her love of pawpaw, as the camp gardener. Although it is PaKarim’s job, it is Alastair’s passion. The list of fruits and vegetables that we enjoy from this garden is quite extensive. We have avocado, mango, pineapple, corn, papaya, ginger, chiles, guava, moringa, limes, lemongrass, potato, peanut, cucumber, watermelon, eggplant, sweetsop and plenty of other items that I can’t remember. Apple has a lot of fun rooting around this garden so we only take her for short walks lest she tear up the place. There is much to enjoy and even more to plant!
