Mini Project

Well, as it turns out, Hondurans love their radishes. Which worked out well for the gringo that has five or six hundred radishes that he (nor his wife) cares for. So, we have now sent the neighbor kids out to sell them around town with them keeping half the profit. We're only talking a few dollars here, but as a result, more neighbor kids are arriving to check out the garden and are interested in selling the product. From here, I'm going to work to interest them in growing at their own home to have something to sell to help out their family and have a little extra cash. If the gringo can do it, they certainly can. In addition, people in the community are gaining access to clean, organic vegetables and stopping by to see what else may be arriving at their door over the coming months.

Easy does it. I don't send her out to work.
Let's pray that some of the parents here see the opportunity to grow veggies at home to feed their kids and to make an extra dollar or two. The neighbors are loving the lettuce as well, and we're seeing folks eating fresh greens that have probably never eaten them in their life. The possibilities are great.

  1. How do you get your seed? Do you save some from this season's harvest?

    1. I'm not sure what level of detail you want. But, if the crop comes true to type and allow us to easily and effectively harvest seeds, we harvest them (lettuce, green beans, peas, cukes, melons, etc).

      The other seeds we have purchased by the ounce from an agricultural supplier here in Honduras called Cohrsil in Siguatepeque. They are very quality seeds with excellent germination rates.

      Hope this helps.
