My Dad’s Garden and Father’s Day Cookout 6-19-2010

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there.

Here are the MVs for Thai Music (Father’s Day songs) Tum Dee Hai Paw Doo and Bok Duay Jai Fung Duay Jai

The Jasmines are in bloom now, I could smell it as soon as I park my car in the driveway.

My second sister recently bought a new water filter, this one is a lot stronger and helps eliminate the Algie.

It has only been a week, and I couldn’t believe my eyes. His plants took a growth spurt and his garden looks so lusciously green, and here I’m green with envy.

I know where to get my Thai eggplants now, mine look so sad in comparison to his.

I think he planted mostly the fat and round chili peppers which means I am also since he gave me the little plants.

I love the sight of his string beans.ย  This trellis is a lot taller than me, I bet it’s over 8 feet tall.

My second sister calls this the rams head, it does look very much like it except it’s upside down. This is the string beans.

My dad thinks he planted the corns too close together, but I think they look pretty good.ย  These are the small white Asian corns.

My Mom’s favorite plant is the crape myrtle, she planted several trees at her old house, and I planted several crape myrtle trees at this house.

The crap apple is perfect for eating with hot sauce or Tum Crap apple, I might try that next week.

And Father’s Day cookout.

Lao beef jerky that my dad made. He made enough for our coming road trip, this will be perfect with sticky rice and hot sauce.

My Mom’s Orchid is still in bloom, as beautiful as ever.


  1. Thanks so much for sharing.

    This morning, when I called Aon, she told me that when the phone rang, Jeremy Aaron said, “Papa, Tor-a-sap” — something like that. That was the best father’s day present I could ask for.

    • Jeffrey, he said “Papa, telephone” that is adorable. Not long before you will join with them again. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • seeharhed, I absolute love this camera, I think I love the video feature best. It does make the foods looking better than the real thing. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Looks like a great way to spend Father’s Day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And his garden is so nice. I love the string bean trellis too. It looks amazing.

      • Cambree, it’s real nice and I hope to find one at the temple when I visit. My sister has this one for many years now.

    • Cambree, his string bean trellis is very pretty, the last that I checked he has string beans now. His backyard is nice and quiet, a great place for a cookout. ๐Ÿ™‚
