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!!
