Harvesting our veggies
We are very excited to harvest our choclo ( mountain corn) and rocotto (small chilli peppers). It has been a lot of fun growing these vegetables and we are harvesting then now as the cold season approaches since there is some frost at night. Picking the veg has been fun now we are enjoying eating it as we remember with thankful hearts that all good gifts around us are sent from heaven above!
June-August is winter in the mountains in Peru. Jess and Sam's school day gets pushed back by 30 mins because it is so cold for the children getting ready for school in the cold mornings. Could you imagine the outcry in the UK if the teachers changed the school hours by 30 mins for 1 half term each year????
