My favorite season of the year is zhizha(rain season). It runs from November to April in Zimbabwe. When the rains have been good, everything is green and fresh produce is in abundance. Fresh mealies, peanuts, ipwa and round-nuts are some of my favourite foods.
Going to visit my grand parents during the April holidays was the best for me. I remember that sometimes coming from church we would not go home straight but go straight into the fields were the melons would have been pre-gathered the previous day. Without any utensils we would break the melons open and eat with our hands. I remember the juices being so sweet and cool running all over my arms and face. Good times! I wish to live like that again.
