July 2010 We need rain

As the heat of summer rose, the lack of water for irrigation continued to negatively effect our attempts to develop the farming activities that will provide income and food for the Home. The wells and bores on many surrounding farms dried up leaving many farmers without crops for income. We lost our banana plants, watermelon crops and the vegetable gardens couldn't be replanted. However with the monsoon months approaching Israel decided to plant a few trees and shrubs.

Planting shade trees along the fenceline.

Hand watering some of the new plants.

The calf has almost doubled in size, but the heat and lack of green grass has greatly reduced the cow's milk production.
