Just before the 2007 ends, I have cleared the balance of land in our eco-farm for additional oil palm cultivation this coming new year 2008. Hopefully we go into opening up another 15 acres of adjacent land during the 2008 calender.
But today I could harvest about thirty numbers of 'lumok'fruits , also referred to 'buah terap' in Malay.
Scientifically referred to as Artocarpus lowii , the 'lumok'tree is a seasonal fruit that grows wildly in our farm. In Bintulu it bears fruits during the months of November till December without fail. For this reason a small vegetation island has been preserved during the clearing of the balance of 4 acres of land mentioned earlier to allow for the survival of lumok trees grown by earlier settlers here. It is auspicious that we start the new year with a bountiful harvest of 'lumok'fruits.
