We are now in the rainy season. The rains have been really late in starting this year but in the past 10 days, the rains have been plentiful and consistent.
Cassidy and several of our primary school children started a garden last week and already corn, lettuce and cucumbers are starting to come up. Cassidy and the children tilled the land using a daba, a short-handled hoe-like tool which is the primary tool used in farming here in Burkina.
Our children are very engaged in the project. They come and check the garden each day. They water it by drawing water from our surface hand-dug well. And, sometimes it looks like they are just watching to see if they can see the plants growing.
