As a small cocoa grower and subsistence farmer beside attending primary school, the soil texture contributed enormously to the harvest that we anticipated. If the soil is hard and rocky, and faraway from the river, whatever we planted won't grow healthy for lack of nutrients from the soil. For instance, a cocoa plant. If the plant is planted on rocky ground, it would grow but chances of withstanding a strong wind blowing is minimal. I've seen this scenario played out multiple times; not with my own trees but with other neighbors, too. Or if I planted sweetcorn on a rocky ground, the corn would bring forth lesser and fewer fruits. And when a strong wind blows, the plant is uprooted with its roots laying on the surface. Soil texture is crucial for the success of what we planted in the garden. Is our homes a conducive environment for grooming the next generation of leaders? What nutrients are we sprinkling in the home? Environment determines destiny. Find out what nutrients are being sprinkled in the life of this boy.
