My daughter Sara (she’s in the middle of the bottom left picture) is at the moment visiting Afghanistan, and of course she brought a Sweden Drill, which I designed for her specially for the travelling purpose (the soil drill is in two parts). Afghanistan has huge environmental problems, but unfortunately the developmental organizations doesn’t understand the value of recycling biological garbage. The streets are full of piles of garbage, which would be splendid material for soilization and growing of vegetables and fruits - and why not pumpkins? As I explained in my growing diary (in 2004), soilization means to drill holes, and to put fresh biological garbage into them, and then growing close to these holes. In the top right picture you can see how afghans has drilled a hole, close to a bush, and are putting garbage into the hole = soilization. The best time for soilization is in the fall.
