Taking Advantage of the rains

The climate of Ghana is often hot and humid (Tropical), and there are two major seasons within a year, the rainy (wet) season and the dry season.

The Harmattan (hot, dry and dusty winds) blows from the Sahara Desert into the Gulf of Guinea between the end of November and the middle of March  (our winter).

Usually the North of Ghana experiences its rainy season from March to November while South Ghana experiences its rainy season from April to mid-October with June-July at the peak of the rainy season.

Due to the mostly hot and dry winds, it is almost impossible to successfully grow crops which rely heavily on constant water/rainfall for its growth. Thus making this season of rainfall the best choice for gardeners and farmers to get busy with their farms.

It should be noted that before the rains begin, farmers would have already prepared their lands, waiting for their crops to receive adequate rains for their growth.

As an African living on an African soil, I live in an environment which has made me to sincerely appreciate mother nature. With the priceless significance of trees and other greenery, I`m leaving no stone unturned.

The season comes but once in a year, and having to appreciate this rainfall season,  I believe that the only proper way for me to make good use of it is to get busy by planting. Planting crops and trees, with my concentration on tree planting especially.

I am glad I can share with you some few pictures.
