Working the Gardens!

Written by: The Bridge on Friday, August 4th, 2006

When my mom and I tried cleaning up the 'Hof', we had to do everything with a wheelbarrow, so we only did it around the kitchen. On our trips to and from the garbage pit with the wheelbarrow, my mom and me kept passing a beautifully built perfectly round garden, right in front of the kitchen, completely clogged with weeds. In hopes that it would change, we commented a couple times to the mothers, that the gardens are ver....

“Hof Aufraume”

Written by: The Bridge on Tuesday, July 11th, 2006

Since we've come to Palmgrove, we've been putting on a push to get the place cleaned up and looking nice. Things have improved considerably, but I must admit at times we do run into a brick wall or two and get quite frustrated. Like the time Reverend (Ifiok), a 25 year old guy, wouldn't give me the truck to help the girls haul firewood. He thought I was joking and laughed his head off and I got madder and madder. Paul Vetter says that he has a key with him at all times and that next time I should just come to him. So now I can't wait for next t....
