Our garden at Ndoudou has produced another good crop of onions, but the market is again VERY low. So we have decided to try another tactic. I got Aya and Bahari to chop a 50k sack of our onions and spread them on the roof terrace to dry. We will test them to see how well they cook and if they work well, package them in small bags. Aya, Bahari and Aboli will then take them around to sell. This could be a very good thing for nomads since they won’t spoil and they will be easy and light to carry. It will take some education for people to accept this new onion thing… we’ll see how it evolves… but everybody is pretty excited.
They then spread the chopped onions on mats on the roof terrace and protected them with mosquito netting–almost dry in one day.
Good job. I can see my diet may change upon your arrival home. Good idea on the onions. Hope it works out.
