Growing Organic Papayas In Philippines

picking organic papayaIt was so loverly to spend a few simple moments today and go and pick our first papaya with Kyra. Kyra loves papaya (and so do I) so we have planted around about 35 papaya trees so far. We have lost about 10 seeing we planted them in the wrong place or at the wrong time Рthe joys of learning how to connect with the land and the cycles. We still have plenty of trees though and they are flourishing.  

Right now we have about 10 plants growing in the nursery to be interplanted next to giant papaya’s next to the path at the Little Happy House. The giant onces were planted for fruit and shade and the ones we will interplant between the giant ones are dwarf plants growing only 1.5 metres tall but producing a profusion of juicy fruit. Yes we will be in papaya land in a years time! Come and enjoy a papaya shake with us soon!

    Sorry for taking so long to reply – I did not know how this site worked properly 🙁 —

    Here are some tips with Papaya Joel

    – plant on a slight slope – they need drainage
    – when you plant dig a hole at LEAST 500 mm deep (1/2 m)
    – add organic fertilizer (COMPOST) to depth of 400 mm !
    – water ONLY once every 2 weeks – they like dry but not TOO dry ..

    AND here is the BIG tip — that will set you aside from other farmers — spread some magic – yes magic – TELL the plant what you want to experinece – and yes they understand all languages (ha ha) – tell them *and hold an image in your mind* – and *feel how you want to feel when you eat the harvest* – what you would like to experience .. plant LOVE to support our desires. And when you pick the fruit – say THANK YOU — they will feel your appreciation and grow more!
