This year, the monsoon isn’t treating us too badly. It’s not great, but at least there have been no long dry spells – so far. The trees are growing and the crops – such as they are – are alive. More on this later. The ponds and lakes haven’t filled up yet. Hopefully, that will happen over the next few months, with the contributions of the southwest and the northeast monsoons. For now, it’s a delight to see the cloudy skies and shining pools around our farm.
