Fri 23rd March

Well, now we know how to weed and mulch a banana plantation! (You never know when this might be useful). Several weeding days had been missed recently so we were at the farm by 8.30am and worked for 4/5 hrs weeding, hoeing, laying banana bark as a mulch and generally getting covered in mud! Several groups of children gathered to stare at these strange beings playing in their environment. Our turn to cook in the evening, which had a mixed reception! But we think our spicy sweet potato and rich tomato sauce with onions, carrots, aubergine and greens were two superb dishes put together in the dark on one tiny charcoal stove!!

  1. Great to hear how you're doing, we now know who to contact for help with our bananas! Can't really imagine what it's like there although Uganda has been on the television recently, featuring on sports relief. I think you said you were going to the orphange today, it will be intereseting to hear what you think of that. look after yourselves, lots and lots of love, Neil and Jen xxx
