Garden Planning

Posted in Peace Corps Adventures by Joy on May 25, 2013

Last Sunday, I dug a tiny little flower bed. In so doing, I realized just how incredibly rocky my soil is. So I’ve been slowly removing the surface rocks from the area I want to plant my garden in a few months, with a bit of bubblegum-incentive driven help from the Iwe Army.
My gardening counterparts are looking toward planting time, too. Even as they harvest. Unfortunately, there’s a limited variety of seeds available here in Zambia, particularly heirlooms. Some seeds we lack are in the comments
