Lifeline Garden Update!
Lifeline's garden is starting to yield its first minicrop. The okra "calalou" is ripe and ready for the pickin. Last week Kayil and I picked some and I fried it up southern style. We don't yet produce enough to help cut costs at Lifeline but someday we hope to. Right now its a teaching tool for Kayil, our new gardener, and the boys he has volunteer with him on Saturdays. We are also testing out our compost fertilizer and the local ant poison granuals before we expand the garden. (Blog by: Candice)
