The Harvest is In
After the rains dry up the maize matures and harvesting has begun. Maize cobs are picked by hand, and dried at home, safe from the Baboons and Wild Pigs that plunder the fields.
Today there is food in the villages, people are happy and the worries of the hungry time are forgotten. Those with surplus maize thresh the cobs and get ready to sell it on the roadside, hoping someone will stop and buy. The cash income is used to buy clothes, cooking oil, soap and dried fish.
