We will begin with our regular weekly updates from now on, as I have been reunited with my secretary once again. With all of the recent patches of rain and sunshine, our crops are excelling. We have one acre of pumpkins and half an acre of zucchinis which are doing very well. Manigriva and Derek picked 20 crates of zucchinis yesterday, which they delivered to the Temple, Gopals Restaurant and one of the local markets.

Zucchinis and Pumpkins

We had a successful yoga retreat with His Holiness Prahladananda Swami in which he taught the participants the techniques of Astanga yoga and Ayurveda. The wild life at the farm has been profuse with the abundance of food available at the moment, and my wife has been hand feeding the king parrots at our back door in the mornings.

We look forward to speaking to you again next week.
Until then, I remain yours in the service of Srila Prabhupada.

Keshava Dasa.
