At the beginning of May we started harvesting the Tef plot (Eragrostis tef). Harvesting is performed manually using traditional methods, a sickle, and in a gradual manner so that not all the field is harvested at once. To our relief, the late spring rain and even the hail in the middle of May do not appear to have significantly damaged the crops. We will be able to determine the final outcome only after the threshing has taken place.
