Tom Arrives (Nov 7)

Greetings from Uganda. After arriving at the refugee Farm after midnight and a 200 kilometer drive from Kampala, we had a busy first day on Friday.  We met with the people of the farm to discuss ways to improve their farming methods and generate income. They have much interest in improving farming methods. We discussed why the tomato crop failed last year. This apparently was due to the fact that they planted too many acres and did not have sufficient water for drip irrigation. Today, Saturday, we are running bacteria testing of the water wells, conducting soil fertility testing, and preparing to deploy the transducers into of the wells on the farm. It is the end of the wet season here and everything is very green and lush. So far, it has been sunny during the day with light showers at times. Temps are pleasant.
