A well, a water pump, and the arms of a man, who is the chief, and a 71-year-old woman named Teresa Gonzalez Hidalgo are enough to make 100 nurseries produce at El Piti vegetable garden, located in Harlem neighborhood, southwest of Holguin city.
The man and the woman make up the labor force for a gross area of 3,300 square meters, where they grow lettuce for the most part.
But also chard, okra, big white onion, radish and other vegetables, like beet that is already growing.
And to maintain the sowing cycle, everything is ready to collect the chard seeds, in a place where plague control plants tinge with living colors that small big business.
Teresa has so much energy and love for her vegetable garden that her daughter Aleida brings her a warm lunch to her workplace.
Teresa Gonzalez Hidalgo, mother of six children, corageous as Mariana Grajales, challenges those too attached to FaceBook, just take her words.
She could be at home watching soap operas or dedicated to housework, but her blood is not fit for relaxation. So much so that she does not ask for retirement and says that when she dies, she will clean the graves.
