The problem is that the young coffee, still in bolsas (Black plastic grow bags), is also growing. Soon the roots will hit the bottom of the bags and get twisted and bent. This means for the trash as a coffee tree needs a long straight tap root.
So, 3300 or so holes dug and plants planted; 1500 to go. Need to get them in the ground by EOD Tuesday.
Unfortunately, the best answer to meeting a tight deadline does
not apply here in Panama. No over time here. Once again my former life lets me down. Working longer does not seem to be an option. So, tomorrow the gardener will join the hole digging team.
