Hola! My name is Valeria, and I’m 7 years old. I recently won a plant-a-garden contest at my Compassion center in Honduras!
I had never planted vegetables before, and I discovered that planting seeds is not an easy job — it requires patience and dedication to get to the harvest season.
When I prepared for the contest, I spent a couple of sunny days with my parents cleaning up the land where we planned to plant our seeds. Because of the intense heat, I put on a colorful hat, a pair of pink rubber boots and yellow rubber gloves. Together, we started shoveling, digging and preparing the soil. At the end of the day, our clothes and boots were full of dirt and dust. But that was fun!
