Working in the organic garden

This week we spent a lot of time in our organic garden. We prepared several plant beds where we planted tomatoes, beans, cucumber, carrots, cantaloupe and other vegetables, that we plan to use in our experimental kitchen.

From seeds to plants…

After this, we decided to build another plant bed next to our spiral herb garden. We will use it to plant corn, and to help it grow very fast, we produced a self made fertilizer out of chicken and horse manure, ash and sand from the river.

It took us about 3 days to finish the two beds. To be honest, the work was exhausting but after everything was done, we took a refreshing swim in the Mamoni river.

While we were relaxing on the marvelous stony beach, Jessie saw for the first time Howler monkeys playing on the trees from the reserve next to the river, what an experience!
