Friday April 21st very hot

With 6 people:

  1. We picked quite a lot of bassella spinach with brinjal and a few beans.
  2. We weeded and mulched a maize bed in the Souryan garden.
  3. We watered fruit trees in New Horizon and the cashew orchard. We also put a coconut fibre mat around the bottom of the trees for extra mulch.  We got the mat from some old mattresses that we took apart and recycled. It makes a very good mulch.
  4. I heard today that our well is suffering. It dried up seven times in the last month and is producing less than half the water that it normally does.  We have no idea how long this hot and dry spell is likely to last.
