Salad Terrace (from farm to fork)

I have my friend JP to thank for organizing both events (farm & fork) because I don’t think there are many folks who have had the opportunity to see where a restaurant’s food originates from. (Except maybe the people at the Food Network) Admittedly, I don’t know much about hydroponic farming, but I knew Salad Terrace‘s owner Khun Lek was going to give us a little tour of his farm. I was looking forward to it as I like “behind the scenes” stuff/books/stories.

According to the wiki, “Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil.”

I had no idea that hydroponics was such a delicate science!

And I was amazed by Khun Lek’s story of persistence and patience while he figured out the right conditions for growing his lettuce.

Khun Lek also talked about his greens like they were his children, what they needed to thrive and what they liked and didn’t like. Beautiful!

Can we eat yet?!?!?!

No, not yet. *sigh* It would be days before we could all gather again and eat at Salad Terrace! Dum, de, dum – waiting – *drums fingers*
Ah-HA! Getting closer! Detox juice from Salad Terrace :D
