This was a week of both ups and downs.

The rain was a welcome relief.  The farm has been facing irrigation problems for many months now [pic 1].  A portable water tank and pump is being used until the irrigation system can be replaced in January/February 2017.

The rainy season reduced intensive irrigation of plants using the portable pump, and raised vegetable production. It’s heartening to see crops on the rise this week.

There was a water leak from the water tank to the drip tapes. Some of the OA had to halt planting activities to address this critical problem to avoid disruption in farm yield.
