I don’t think anyone would say that the rainy season is a pleasant time of year in Sierra Leone, but it does ignite a growth spurt in plant life, which is always a good thing.
My swiss chard is continues to come up nicely.
Although it doesn’t look like much is going on in this bushy area of camp, there are thousands of little groundnuts, or peanuts, growing underground.
I’m already planning jars of peanut butter for when they are ready.
The gardener, PaKarim, planted a few flowers around my conservatory to enhance its curb appeal.
And, he positioned a plant they call “merry walk-about” which will climb up the beams outside of my bedroom and produce tiny red flowers.
I gave him some banana cake as a thank you.
Lastly, our lime tree continues to offer us more juicy, yellow limes than we can possibly use.
I’ve decided that a lime cake is the only reasonable solution to this quandary.
I suppose the rainy season has its perks.
