Eid is roasting some freshly grated coconut in a wok. Amazing smell, but tricky work — very easy to burn.
My cousin Cynthia asked in a comment about our plans to build a “mud guest room”, so I posted the following two photos to show her the progress on our little homestead:
No progress on the “natural home” yet, Cyn. My plan is to build in the area behind this fallen tamarind tree. But Eid’s Mom says it can still bear fruit, so we don’t want to cut it up yet.
In the meantime, I’ve been working on making hugelkultur beds with wood from the limbs and roots of another, even bigger tamarind tree that fell a few years ago.
