Sithabiso and I have 10 fields between us and we grow cabbages, green peppers, tomatoes, onions, butternut and eggplant which are not yet planted. I find farming easy now because we work in team.
The Challenges so far: The donkeys at Ebenezer ate some of our cabbages – not too many as they were chased out of the fields. At first the butternuts didn’t germinate well. We have gap-filled and they are growing nicely now.
The joys so far: The tomatoes are growing really well. We are expecting a bumper harvest. Our tomatoes haven’t been affected by red spider mite. The cabbages are also looking great. No pests and diseases have affected them. The onions are still small. Not all of them have germinated well so we may have to dig and replant. We have just planted our green peppers and I’m hoping they’ll do well.
Farming is interesting. I’m really pleased with my tomatoes.
