Farming season began a little late in Zacango this year due to the late arrival of the rains (end of June/early July instead of mid June). We planted a small plot of maize once again and here are some pictures of the first weeding of our plot. Last year the maize we planted (and later harvested in November) fed our animals (two donkeys, a pig, chickens, and rabbits) until May. We planted very quickly this year before heading out to Honduras and hence don't have any pictures of the intial ploughing and seeding process.
The kids love helping with the maize... especially Hizee, she is a hardcore worker who can weed for an hour straight withour complaint.
