2014 No Beans for RICE
Just came back from Cayo. Spent some time in Bullit Tree Falls, Great artist live there, buying art, but mostly they and their families are farmers. The rain has devastated our Belize farmers. No beans this year, planting season is over. None were planted. No lots of other produce either. Tomatoes are now going to be $7.50 a lb. Cows and livestock have reportable been drowning in fields underwater. No corn as well. We complain about our roads etc, but these farmers live such a fragile life with little pay for the hours of hard work they do, so we can have our meals..I am just sad.
