    I am assuming you are asking for instruction on how to get to my house. If you are know that and are interested in instructions how to plant I will tell you when you are here. Please text me at 09163076038 and let me know when you will come by.

    My house is located in Cambado, Bacong, located on the Bacong-Valencia Road. The house has a yellow block/stucco wall with wrought iron on top of it in a scalloped pattern and with flowering plants and foliage in front of the wall. The Wall has orange columns and trim.
    Here is how to get to the house.
    From Dumaguete or any place north of Bacong:
    Go south to the Central market area of Bacong, turn right and go up two intersections and then turn right. Again, Go two intersections and turn left. Then go one intersection and turn right, you will now be on a dirt road (this is a detour road because of road construction). Go one block and turn left onto the Bacong-Valencia road which is dirt under construction for less than 0.1KM and you will be on the Bacong-Valencia Road, , heading west. My house is approximately 0.6 KM on the right after getting on paved road. If you have gotten to Bambulo Resort, you have gone too far… read directions from Valencia. (PLEASE NOTE: The Bacong-Valencia Road is under construction which is why you have to detour through town.)
    From Dauin or anyplace south of Bacong:
    Just turn left off the National Hiway into Central market area and follow the directions above from the Central Market.
    From Valencia:
    Go east on the Bacong- Valencia road toward Bacong. Once you pass Bambulo on the left, my house is an addition 0.9 KM on the left.

    God luck, text me first before coming. Tomatos are still very young and may not be ready for another week.

    Ok, just follow the instructions for coming I gave Redneck. I do not think the tomatoes are ready yet. Too small for this weekend, but Zucchini is ready.. I will hold the Zucchini for another week if you want.

    I have four pepper plants for free

    We potted up some peppers out of the garden. There is not enough room for all of them, and they have not been very productive. They seem to be green peppers, small peppers. I need more room and anyone who wants them can PM me, taking all four or only one. These are not great plants but they do have about 3 months worth of growth. Peppers do not seem to do well for me.

    Read previous posts for Redneck on how to contact me and get to my home.

    Dave, thanks for the directions and I actually meant instructions to keep these plants alive and doing well, LOL. If you can hold them until the tomato plants are ready, I will pick them all up at the same time...maybe in another week? Thanks again!!

    Dave, when I pick up these plants next weekend, will the zucchinis need to go into the ground right away or can they live in the pots they are in for a bit? What do I need to do to get my ground ready? I know they like sun. Should I bring some dirt in to make some "mounds" to plant them in? Digging in our yard I have discovered we hit rock pretty quickly. Where can I get some good dirt? I assume the tomato plants will be okay to stay in some larger pots.....? Any suggestions?

    The faster you get the plant in the ground the faster they will grow big and produce fruit. I have some fertilizer here that will help you I would suggest you have a couple of 4 -5 inch small fish ready to put in the bottom of each hole, they can be dried fish is you like, but dead moist fish is best. Dumaguete fish market has them as cheap as 20 P a kg, remember you do not need pretty ones that YOU would consider eating yourself. Dig the holes about 6 inches deep and abot 8 inches in diameter, put water in them so they do not suck water out of the soil around the plants. Maybe I can plant one while you are here so you can see how i do it.
