Our Maize Harvest

One of the best aspects of living in rural Mexico has been learning about how people farm their crops by having our own little field of maize. Everything is done by hand -- it is a lot of work, but very gratifying work. I realize that this is very easy for me to say as we are farming in order to learn and to feed our animals. For the people of Zacango, farming maize is life -- it means food (corn to make tortillas) and the connection that people have with maize is profound.
