Back in May? or was it April, a friend and i embarked on a journey to grown passionfruit as a business, intercropping it with habanero pepper.
First, just the labour was a pain, clearing the mashland, little boys taking us for a ride, literally extorting money from us and producing a half decent job. They were meant to dig the trenches to carry water (they asked extra for this), and because these were not deep enough, this is what happened
Almost defeated, very mad at this stage, i was just about ready to give up, what was the point? there was no way we would be able to plant in such an area. The rains kept coming, and if we were to wait until the water levels went down, this meant that every season, we would be subjected to these levels of rain and as such the field would get flooded.
Since we did not want to plant yams, we decided to sit it out and think…..
stay tuned for what came next…
