In March maize and beans were planted in readiness for the ‘long rains’ which usually arrive anytime during the month of April. These rains can threaten the crops if they are torrential however this has not materialised and only a small amount of rain has fallen. This has meant that those like happy Home who planted their crops early have done quite well with the harvest. Happy Home bean harvest is good as is the maize harvest.
Please thank God for good progress in the harvest this year.
