5 cool tips with Ou Banung & Nong Chanmonor


Here are some simple things you can do at home to make growing food and preparing your meals a lot easier.

Getting rid of bad smells after descaling fish
Generally, small fish do not need their scales removed but big ones do. Taking off the scales usually leaves a bad smell on people’s hands. Getting rid of the smell is easy, just take guava leaves and crush them in your hands for 5-10 minutes. Try it, since guava leaves are easy to find.

Getting rid of bad smells from pigs and chickens
If you are feeding chicken or pig at home, the smell is not ideal. There are two easy ways to combat this. You can either mix XM fertiliser around where the animals relieve themselves, or you can mix the fertiliser in with its food. Either way gets rid of the smell.

Choosing the best mango
From my experience, Keo Lmeat and Pom mango are the best to grow because they are ready to harvest within two to three years. These two types of mango do not require much attention. You just buy one which has already grown for one year, and then take care of it for another year. These two types of mango provide fruit two times per year.

After that, put some water in the bottle, and that’s all. You can hang it everywhere since it does not require a lot of space or sunshine. You do not need to give more water as it already has there in the bottle, then up to one month or 45 days later, you should have a bunch of salad between 700-800 grams.
