In the morning for breakfast I ate the ragi porridge made from the freshly ground seeds from yesterday and it definately tasted very much better than usual.

After that I was ready to go to the foxtail field where the harvest was in progress done by a few of the local people. We used hand sickles and our arm power. A local woman was very keen on showing me how the sickle works and she was very conserned that I did not cut myself. We cut a bundle at a time and slowly my work seemed more succesful although not even closely as efficient as the locals. The bundles were collected into bigger heaps which were tied and left waiting for the machine to separate the seed from the stems.
