cottage industry

last year our mâe bâan and her husband  put us to work making pony bead keychains. they were wholesaling them somewhere, but we never got the complete story.  and then around loi krathong they went into the fried meat on a stick business.  i don’t know how well that one went.  there were lots of people selling fried meat on a stick  and it took some capital up front that we fear they might not have recouped.  but now.  now i think they might be on to something.  and the only investment it required was killing our koi.

seems that when there are no fish in a pond frogs take over.  not the one or two that we’ve always had around.  we’ve now got a dozen or so laying their eggs in our pond.  and we seem to have a surival rate of like 110%.  it’s tadpole central out there.

they’re actually doing better than surviving.  they’re thriving.  p’jim and p’khao have started a nursery of sorts.

they’ve begun separating the no longer tadpoles from the still tadpoles.  and today they were telling me that the cute little frogs taste good.  they’re gonna collect them and sell them.  i don’t know how you prepare itty bitty frogs for sale and i probably don’t want to. but i do wish them lots of luck.
