From Badugul down the north slope toward the coastal city of Singaraja and the area of Lovina beach are steep forested mountain sides growing coffee, mangoes, and avocados.
The mountains above our new home site a filled with clove (Cengkeh) trees. This is the season for picking the buds from these trees as the begin to flower. The buds begin green and are separated from the flower stem by hand and put into the sun to dry.
Other trees on the lower slopes produce bread fruit and cacao as shown in the last photo.
