WAIW | Harvesting Jackfruit

Image contains a large, leafy green tree in the background. In the foreground, there is a man on the left wearing a face mask. The man is holding a large spiny light green fruit to his right, and there is a dog with black patches around her eye that is looking directly at the man.

First off, despite popular demand, I will not be shifting the focus of T.O.F.U. to articles written by cats. My apologies, but hopefully you knew it was a joke to begin with. Sure, I wouldn’t mind reading that Beyoncé article either, but I just can’t have writers that eat fish working for the magazine. I mean, it’s not exactly vegan.

Second, my time here in Chiang Mai, Thailand is winding down (for this trip at least), and I have to admit that I’m happy about that. There have been plenty of ups and downs over the last three months, but the extremely poor air quality during this burning season has had me ready to leave for weeks now. Once again, I’m shocked that I’m looking forward to going to Saigon, Vietnam for cleaner air (and banh mi, but that’s a given).

On that note, today I shot my last Where Am I Wednesday episode for the trip, and I decided to focus it on a first for myself: harvesting jackfruit. In previous sits here, I’ve harvested papaya on the property, but I had never harvested any of the jackfruit.
