It is now about the typical end of the rainy season. Sebastian shows an mpingo seedling that is now over three times the height it was when transplanted, as his left hand marks the original top of the seedling when it was transplanted less than 6 months ago. The dried weeds hoed from the plot have been gathered around the mpingo trees as mulch to hold in moisture during the coming dry season. They will survive using the rainfall stored in the soil from the recent long rains and the small amount of moisture coming from the buried water bottles until the short rains come in late October. 18 June 2008.
