Working in the Vegetable Plots

A mother of two - one, is on her back and the other behind her.

Here are a few more pictures of the work yesterday.  Today, Sunday, we have delivered 30 bunches of spinach to the Hotel to use in the Sunday International Buffet.  Soon, the cucumbers and other vegetables will be ready.  Monday – work in the new plots begins.

 

Schooling is very important and money gained from growing vegetables helps to pay for school fees and uniforms.

Yesterday village folk came to work in the contract farming demonstration plots, now that we are beginning to get some growth after the flooding.
