    Looks a lot like it did 6 months ago, except maybe worse. Another year or 3 and it will be closer.

    There are lots of people working on it and lots of materials being hauled in but progress looks slow, looked almost the same as it did in July.

    I have given up on rainy season tomatoes because I don`t like the spray schedule. An agronomist in Esteli told me the pros spray 13 times per crop. Now in the dry season I have a couple plants growing that came from volunteers growing in a flower bed. They look like descendents of Red Cheery. Someday if I build a green house to keep out the insects that spread the diseases I might get serious about tomatoes again.

    My gardening is a hobby/family think and it makes sense to grow what grows well here and skip the marginal stuff. Hadn`t though much about growing beens, but I might give garbanzos and pintos a whirl. Commercial seed may be hard to find, but on a hobbyist level I could try planting supermarket beans. i miss pintos and Mexican food just isn`t quite right with red beans.
