Our seasons are a little crazy.
As we are in the Northern Hemisphere, we should have July as the hottest part of the year but its actually March April and May. This is because June-Sept is the wet season.
We put in 50 tomato plants about 6 weeks ago - small local tomatoes that ere not the tastiest but we are guaranteed they will grow. We also planted 10 seedling tomatoes that were seeds meant for last year's US summer season. I have 10 varieties I am taking over that supposed to be designed for the tropics so we will have a litte trial of each.
We have egg plant, okra, buk choy in. Lima Beans, spinnach, silver beets, corn, melons and squash will be planted in two weeks.
I managed to get 2 trailer loads of saw dust to use as a mulch and also to start composting.
After a small but successful garden planted 4 months ago, my workers suddenly see the value of home grown with the ability to sell the excess. The sales from any excesss veggies will be "sharefarmed" I get 50% and they get 50%. Of course they tend to the gardens on the clock so its all gravy for them.
I am hoping that between quail bird sales, some eggs and veggies, I wont have to remit as much in salaries.
