Primitive Technology: Planting Cassava and Yams

Grass hut Bed shed Barrel tiled shed Tiled hut Wattle and daub hut After being abandoned in favor of the other huts, the roof deteriorated and the walls damaged by rain A tree fell and destroyed the sweet potato patch Setting fire to tree Scraping away charred wood Chopping the rest with stone tools Using a log as a type 2 lever to shift tree logs as slide rails Wood for fence pickets Hammering pickets Weaving together with vine Digging mounds 32 mounds My stone hut, far down stream, 10 years earlier damaged by a tree in a cyclone The ruins of the hut today Wild yams grow over it now Aerial bulbs make good planting material Wild cassava, escaped from early farms in the area The stems are used for planting material It produces large, edible tubers high in energy Protected by law, scrub turkeys have lost their fear of humans.

It will only leave if chased away 25 cm lengths of cassava stems Planted horizontally in mounds Yam bulbs were also planted along the fence so that the vine could climb on it Storm rain brings nitrogen In less than a week the cassava sprouts It will require little attention after planting and will be harvested at the end of the year.
