 The Tropical Rain Forrest - Balancing The Rainy And Dry Seasons

The growing season in the tropical jungle is 12 months a year.  During those 12 months are 2 seasons, rainy season and dry season.  The dry season is the chance to burn off the fields for the next years growing.  Only 2 of the crops are planted and harvested more than one time a year.  Those are rice and kidney beans.  Here Veto is inspecting his rice grove. A large amount of water is required to maintain the grove but has always produced during the dry season as well.   Veto has plans to start additional groves within the next year.   In 1998 Veto dammed the creek that flows though the land in order to fish farm.  The experiment is still a work in progress. Veto says that fish are harder to grow than Yucca. 


Veto and his uncle inspect the rice fields


Chiote is grown using wooden supports for the Chiote to grown on.  The wooden stand keeps the Chiote off the ground and enables it to grow while hanging instead of growing on the ground where vermin problems can happen.


Collecting the Yucca from the field is a family outing


A deliver of coffee plant startups had been delivered and left on the side of the road for delivery.  Here Juan and his cousins inspect the delivery before Veto arrives to organize the transportation to the coffee fields.  With hundreds of plants to move it may take many trips to get the plants across the river to the coffee grove.  These images were created years before the bridge was built.

The end of dry season is always a sight of dry and burnt fields.  Here the field is waiting for the rain to nourish the land for replanting of Yucca.  Yucca is planted 1 time a year depending on the start of rain from either April of May.
