The end of the drought

Finally the end of the drought has come. Between some rain locally and flood waters coming from up river, we have a good supply of water.  This below is the flood plain just adjacent to the garden.  We will have an excellent water supply for the months ahead!

This is where we can pump water from to our sprinkler system.  
Katima Mulilo is heading into the winter season as we head into summer here in NY.  The workers have cleared some new areas and have started plots of vegetables that will grow well in the colder weather that is ahead in June, July and August.  

Cabbage seedings
As we expand the garden with some new plots, we are going to need to purchase some additional pipes and sprinkler heads. Please let us know if you are interested in sponsoring this expansion!

We are very grateful for a special donation that made uniforms possible for our garden workers.  Not only are they sturdy clothes that can withstand hard work, they are much warmer than regular clothes for the winter months ahead.
