Hello everyone. I live part time in Colombia, south america. My plans will be a full time person there and the main reason is because the weather is 75 F during the day and 50-55 at nights and this is the 12 months of the year.

I would like to know if anyone is doing any gardening of any kind so we can exchange ideas.

The area I am mostly visiting is the departamento Antioquia and the town would be Guatapé.

I have a friend who vacations at an altitude in Columbia that is probably a little lower than yours, because he experiences 80 degree days and a bit warmer at night. he really likes the cool nights. We are both from a part of Canada that has hot, muggy summer, without the nighttime relief, usually for a few weeks each year.

I wonder how much of your precipitation is in the form of dew? There are ways to capture that, if you have need of more precipitation than the sky provides.

I'm also looking for it land in the tropics, at altitude, but it must be in the Philippines, for family reasons.

Thanks Dale, for precipitation, the area it does rain at least 15 days a month.
 
We noticed he had no friends. So we gave him this tiny ad:
