Natural Pesticide From Local Plants

How do you keep your vegetables in your organic garden pest-free? Let me tell you, it is impossible to have no damage in your vegetables. However, I can share with you a cheap, fun and effective method to deter those mean insects that come your food’s way.

Firstly, see and observe the surroundings around you. Observe what leaves, flowers, roots and fruits do not get touched at all by any insects. When you found a plant like that, it most probably that the plants contain a natural chemical that insects do not like.

Some local plants that can be used to make natural pesticide are ginger (jahe), galangal (lengkuas), kencur, kunyit (turmeric), temulawak, temugiring, lemongrass (sereh wangi), shallots (bawang merah), garlic (bawang putih), mindi, brotowali.

All these ingredients can be found in traditional market and some grow wildly in your garden. Gather as many ingredients as possible. However, you can omit some ingredients you cannot find. Here are the steps to make the natural pesticide concentrate:

  1. Blend a little of all the ingredients mentioned above with the 1 liter of used water from rice washing.
  2. In a pail, mix in the blended materials with 100ml of vinegar of any kind, 100ml of 40% alcohol, 100ml of molasses and 100ml of organic liquid fertilizer.
  3. Cover pail and keep it in room temperature.
  4. Stir the mixture twice a day for 5 minutes for 15 days. Remove the cover once in a while to release gas from the fermentation.
  5. After 15 days, leave the mixture for about 7 days before use.


  1.     Add 10ml of the natural pesticide concentrate to 1 liter of water.
  2.     Mix well.
  3.     Spray to infected plants (recommended time of spray: late afternoon to night time)

Ploughman’s Lunch

What did you have for lunch today? When we are at the farm, we love to have lunch with our farmers and share some food. Most of the times, our farmer’s wife will bring them food to bring to work so they don’t have to go far for lunch. A spot under a tree is usually the perfect getaway spot to enjoy lunch time with fellow farmers. Lunch is simple. It usually involves rice with protein like tempe or tofu. There are usually pepes and some home-cooked veggies such as cassava or papaya leaves as well to accompany. Lunch is more of a time for our farmers to enjoy the fresh air and chat.

Did you know that we have a plot of land dedicated to feed our farmers? Usually our farmers will take home the plants they can harvest from this dedicated plot to feed their family. Let me tell you, although the farmer’s lunch looks simple, but it is some of the best food that we have ever had for lunch. And probably it is because all the hard work that they have done too 🙂

Handy Tools for Your Garden

Happy Monday everyone! Today we would love to share with you some basic gardening tools that was inspired by our tools at the farm. These tools are the basic tools that you can get from general shops and they cover the basic needs for domestic gardening.

1. Trowel
A trowel is basic tool used for digging small holes, breaking up earth, smoothing or moving small amount of material. It has a scoop shape and usually is made from metal.


2. Gloves
Wearing gloves while gardening is rather important because the soil can contain some materials that you don’t want to stay in your hand. And anyway, it is easier to wash off dirt from gloves rather than from your hand and it keeps your hand protected from scratches or cuts.


3. Rake
Rake is basically a broom that is used for outdoor. It is used to collect leaves or grass, to loosen soil, weeding and leveling. A rake is especially useful if you have medium-sized land that you need to work on.


4. Boots
A pair of good quality gardening boots is one of our best investments. We always change our shoes into boots when we are at the farm. They protect our legs from scratches and make us walk easier especially on wet soil. When looking for a gardening boots, look for the one that is lightweight, waterproof and durable.

A Handy Farming Trick from Local Farmer

Sometimes we are so detached with nature that we do not realize that nature is there for us and not against us. The earth is filled with elements that naturally helps every microorganisms to survive easily.

One handy trick to make sure plants in our garden grow healthily is to make sure we plant during the right time.

In country with tropical weather like Indonesia, we have only 2 seasons. The dry and rainy season. A smart time to plant the ready-to-transplant plants is the end of the rainy season. End of rainy season allow young plants to get sufficient water and also not too much rainwater that it will damage delicate and young plants. This season has also not so harsh sunlight that it will cause stress to young plants. This pattern of nature also allows less work on our part to regularly water the plants and gives us more time on our hands.

Last but not least, do not forget to use the rainy season as an indication for us to sit back and think about what we want to plant in our garden and then start planting seeds in nursery or indoor. By the end of the rainy season, we will be ready to plant our desired plants and welcome the dry season with bountiful harvest!
