After the long drought that started in January, we are now facing a good amount of rains according to the tv weather forecaster. In the farms, it is planting time but in our extended garden that is usually inundated by continuous rains, we have a dilemma on what to plant. The cassava crops last year was ruined when the flood lasted for a week. The sweet potato vines looked jubilant with the rains but they also die when the place is flooded. We are thinking of a raised bed for the crops. But we would need help to make the raised beds. The soil is quite clayey and hard to dig up. But my husband is thinking of just planting the sweet potato since it would crawl up to the higher areas. That means even when the beds get flooded, not all the vegetables would die. Hmm, let us see.
