This is the very best season for moringa so we are starting to harvest from the big garden at ‘Ndoudou and the small one at my house in Agadez. We will pick every month and dry the harvest in the shade to preserve the vitamins, package it in small bags and make it available to the nomads at Tamesna. The matrones (mid-wives) and their patients will get it free and the rest will be sold by our guardian who is quite the entrepreneur at Tamesna.
The house garden has been furnishing me with veggies–chard, eggplant, arugula, basil (I make great pesto), carrots, and onions. The best crop is the moringa which I eat in everything. I have just tried a moringa pesto–yum!
