The fields at Zambezi Farm are producing eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, kale, okra, carrots and more. We're particularly excited by the new tomatoes. They've just begun to "blush", the beginning of ripening.
The goat herd is increasing, with 3 new babies in the last month. And the free range chicken run is currently housing 23 local hens and 3 roosters. The first eggs have been laid!
The rainy season is approaching, and with it blessings as well as some obstacles. Hopefully there will be enough rain to water the large new planting of corn seed without having to rely on irrigation. On the other hand, the rainy season brings much higher risk of disease for the goats. To help prevent infection, the goat shelter must be enlarged to give them more air and room to move.
