Agriculture

Since we started our project we have been working on making the most of the property that we have through agriculture.  We have about 10 acres that we have been working with and have planted each year.  Every year has been a learning experience as we have struggled with too much rain, too little rain, and an over abundance of insects, weeds, and plant diseases.  We have had successes and failures but we are gaining ground each year. 

 

We have grown or are currently growing the following items:

 

Beans (red and black)

Corn

Cabbage

Yucca

Quiquisque (a kind of a root similiar to Elephant Ear plant)

Tomatoes

Peppers

Watermelon

Canteloupe

Green beans

Okra (for personal reasons)

Pipian (summer squash)

Ayote (kind of a Nicaraguan squash/pumpkin)

Carrots

Soybeans

Bananas

Plantains

Oranges

Tangerines

Papaya

Coffee

 

We are currently in the process of converting portions of the property to coffee production.  This is a low maintenance crop and has a great potencial for helping us raise money for the home.

 

We also raise some animals.  We have cattle, pelibuey sheep, chickens, and will soon have pigs.
