The garden has been evolving nicely. The sand is slowly turning brown and we are seeing more life in the garden each week. We’ve already had a big harvest of Beans, Cranberry Hibiscus, Okra, Rosela, Moringa, Pigeon Pea and now we are seeing our first tomatoes and pumpkins ripening up. The girls are loving it, and we’ve even finally won over the groundskeeper, who built his own extra garden bed over the christmas break. Slowly but surely, I think we are showing that growing your own food isn’t a sign of poverty, It’s actually a lot of fun, really healthy, and finally some people are begging to think it’s ‘cool’. Success.
