If you had to grow your own food to survive, how would you go about it? That issue is an ongoing challenge in Haiti.
During my recent trip to Terre Blanche, I asked one farmer how he gets good seeds. To answer, he gave me an example: When papaya seeds are needed he goes to the market, looks for the best papaya he can find, buys it and then saves the seeds to plant.
That struck me as a pretty smart method but certainly different and more involved than going to my local store and locating the seed rack. Just another illustration of the challenges of life in Haiti.
