Harvesting Peas

On a Saturday in November I joined Othy’s family at one of their farms to harvest peas. It was nice to get out and into a more natural area and do physical work. They don’t tend the field much and so we dug through the grasses to find the pea stalks and pulled them up before picking the pods off the stem. Moses helped a bit but preferred roaming around and found a friend to play with. It rained off and on and so twice I went and sat in the car for a bit. The countryside around Butembo is very lush and beautiful.
