Organic Farming in Belize
Bach track to Yesterday afternoon. Walked to Tropic Air Cargo for 1:30 as planned to pick up our precious veggies coming in from Belmopan – unfortunately it was not there yet and they said they would call me at 2:30 as soon as it came in. Luckily Sue and Rick had offered to meet me there and bring the veggies back to their place as I had arranged to borrow their fridge for a few hours – so I caught a ride home with them.
True to their word Tropic Cargo guys called me at 2:14 and said I could come by any time to pick up the 2 boxes. Again my hitching luck was riding high and I caught a ride back to Tropic with Cindy who was on her way back to work. Pick up was easy – shipping was already paid and all I had to do was sign for it. Our fav cab driver Carlos sent someone to pick me up and I was at Rick and Sue’s place in no time. We filled their spare fridge and I told him I w0uld be back with tacoboy to pick everything up at 6:30.
All the while Zac and I were texting back and forth and when I got home and checked his email I found out why the order seemed a bit light – there was a bit of a struggle to ship on the mainland with mass transportation systems on holidays so we will likely be getting a second shipment tomorrow as well as taking orders for Thursday.
Stuff pretty much flew off the table tonight and all that Zac was left with was some moringa powder – cherry tomatoes and parsley. Everyone was very pleased with their purchases. After talking to Char I am quite excited to try moringa in my smoothies. After smelling the cacao in the sampler mix with moringa and chia seeds I want some of that too it had such a rich chocolaty smell.
In foodie heaven – just ate a big salad with organic greens – arugula – parsley and the most delicious cherry tomatoes. Dessert is a strawberry banana smoothie with mroinga powder and chia seeds. Shout out to Zac for making it all happen and giving us some affordable healthy green options.
