Zacate Harvest

The zacate (dried leaves from the maize stalks) is the first to be harvested and is used to feed donkeys during the dry season when there is a lack of fresh grass and weeds for them to eat. We do not produce enough zacate in our small field to feed our three donkeys for the 8 or so months that we need to feed them, so we buy zacate from our neighbours to supplement our small supply.
We store our zacate on our roof.
