Bringing in the crops

Today Gideon our gardener brought the in first crop of maize. Hadeja, the cook roasted the maize and the children devoured it. It really was so delicious. The children have asked if they can have it every day when they come home from school. We are now eating lots of our own crops, bananas, cucumbers, kale, spinach, and passion fruit . The tomatoes will be ready in a couple of weeks and the carrots maybe next week along with the peppers. Galiano and water melons are also growing well.  It is so exciting to see the food being brought into the kitchen every morning.  The house Mums are giving the babies mashed potaoes and fresh greens with mashed bananas and juice made from the passion fruit.
 Dreams really do come true.
