Busy Spring at the gardens!

Happy Summer! I am so happy for the cooler weather and rain this week!

I am sorry I have not posted for a few weeks. It has been a very busy spring and start to the summer season. Over 62 families have been given plots in the garden. Every inch has been feverishly planted. Atleast 30 – 40 people come out every day to water, hang out, eat some snacks, harvest greens, etc. With our picnic tables now in place the gardens have become a real hang out. We have been having informal english lessons, eating mangoes, sharing recipes, drinking tea, and much more. A lot has been harvested already and many of the summer crops are growing tall! My Nepali is getting much better and I am learning a few Burmese words each week.

The heat was tough on us all – but this cooler weather and a little rain has helped us and the plants a lot!

My most recent photos got deleted but below are some great phots from the past month!

One thought on “Busy Spring at the gardens!

  1. Very nice garden plots. Wow, they are stuffed. I hope you are able to get some more land to work with. Seems like lots more folks would be gardening. Very nice project though! We have a small homestead in Northern Minnesota, and there’s no doubt, gardening is probably the essential element for anybody’s life.
