garden kaikai

When we arrived, we found that only the root crops in our garden had survived.  Not only had they survived, they had thrived!  Next to Benjamin's feet, you can see our obikola (cassava); this is what we use to make lelenga.  Katherine loves to get out in the garden and help.  The umalau in her bowl turned into potato soup, mashed potatoes, and umalau cooked with thick coconut cream over hot stones (motu).

Such good little helpers!

Oh it's good to "hear" from you again! I was praying for your Easter on the island - how was it?

I'm quite envious of your warm weather and beach time... we're playing soccer in about 40F and "chunky" rain.

A blessed Easter (belated) to you all!
