How our Garden Grows . . . in Kenya
I hope you really enjoyed Earth Day! It's raining here, and the farmers are busy in their fields.
Our gardens are growing, and we had a work party to pull weeds. We are growing Irish potatoes that are large and drought resistant, beans, black nightshade, beets and leeks, drought-resistant cassava, and spinach. See our portable garden with onions and black nightshade. Did you know that young pumpkin leaves are edible?
The earth is a generous mother; she will provide in plentiful abundance food for all her children if its soil is cultivated in justice and in peace.
