It's been a busy week as far as farming activities go. Fields have been ploughed, 1/2 an acre of cow grass has been planted (the 6ft variety) and harvesting of the rice has began. The rice is being harvested by hand this year, because no harvesting machine is available in our area. It's hot and itchy work, being done by people from the village assisted by Prabhu, Radha, Subhu, Sitra, Pastor Daniel and the boys. Preparations have also been done for planting a field with pawpaw, banana and drumstick plants.
