This is a photo of Manuel. Cristian has told me that Manuel is a hard worker. Notice that Manuel is having his picture taken in back of a Square Foot Garden. The reality: the soil in Honduras is depleted, chemicals are too expensive for poor people to afford and weak plants are vulnerable to pests.

Yesterday, Manuel and Cristian planted yellow squash. It will be interesting to see the results when comparing the squash being planted in depleted soil as opposed to the composted mix.
