YES, YES TO NONO. Nono Ramirez was 12 years old when his legs got burned in a freak accident. The way it happened was that he was sent out to buy kerosene for the family kerosene lamp (“gasera”). He took the kerosene home in an open container, on his bike, so the liquid splashed all over his pants. When he got home, his mother was in the process of lighting the gasera. Without thinking he took her hand to put it to his forehead and the gasera fell on his kerosene damp legs. Nono says he remembers a “whoosh” as his legs caught fire and then an explosion of flame as the gasera exploded in the same area. By the time his frantic mother and step-father were able to extinguish the flame, he suffered third-degree burns on the lower part of his body. Nono was never able to walk properly again after his burned muscles and tendons healed and contracted, and years later the bones on both legs developed an infection that required an amputation above the knee. Despite all this, Nono was able to marry and that marriage produced three children. He is 50 years old now, he is able to make a living by growing pumpkins and giant watermelons, and has developed a very positive attitude towards life. You can see now why this farmer of all the farmers we have dealt with, inspires us so much.
“I can grow them 11 to 12 kilos in weight, no one grows it bigger and sweeter than I do.” Nono brags. I almost asked in jest if the reason for that was because he is able to work with them at the plant’s height, that he did not have to kneel like other farmers, but I don’t think that would not be a very good joke anyway. He did say in this video that he is already with his watermelon plants at 5AM every day, and that he talks to them to encourage them to give him a lot of fruit. My joke wouldn’t be too far off pala. So when Nono asked us for help with his watermelons and sent this video, what do you think we would say. “YES, YES” of course.
GROWTH BUY: WATERMELONS. If you are willing to wait for one month until July when these watermelons really grow to size, you can give you giant watermelons (1 or 2 pieces, 10 kilos minimum), pay only P500. Founder Members get the 12 kilos of the the biggest ones. Just 100 members for this. We shall give Nono the money to ease his worries for a buyer for his watermelons.
