Kenya, Pictures, The Farm

If you plant them… they will grow.

I’m the proud father to budding sprouts of beans and corn! I figured I should put some pictures online so you guys can see the progress of the farm, so here you go..

Alan with his small farmSpinach, cilantro, skuma, bell pepper, onion, lettuce, beans…

The first picture is me standing between the two raised beds (the right bed is smaller and entirely dedicated to growing yellow corn), and the second picture shows my rows of spinach, cilantro, skuma, bell pepper, onion, lettuce, and beans.

I can hardly wait until it’s time to harvest!

    I wouldn’t normally say this but, “wOOt!”
    wOOt! You’re growing stuff! wOOt go alan! Now if only you could grow little debbies…

    w00t is now a real word!

    Merriam-Webster has officially added it to the dictionary.

    Based on votes from visitors to their Web site, the expression is the #1 Word of the Year for 2007.

    w00t (interjection):
    expressing joy (it could be after a triumph, or for no reason at all); similar in use to the word “yay”

    w00t! I won the contest!

    This year’s winning word first became popular in competitive online gaming forums as part of what is known as l33t (”leet,” or “elite”) speak—an esoteric computer hacker language in which numbers and symbols are put together to look like letters. Although the double “o” in the word is usually represented by double zeroes, the exclamation is also known to be an acronym for “we owned the other team”—again stemming from the gaming community.

    Hi Alan, the crop looks great and seems to be ready for harvest in no time. I must say that you are definitely the best dressed farmer in town.

    Great to have more pics (esp. of the town – so we have more of a sense of where you live)! Grey says hi (just talked to her)! Am going to get C to help me make an E-Xmas letter this year so I can include a link to your amazing blogs and photos!
