- A Nigeria journalist, Henry Ifeanyi Ojelu, has got his friends talking with the recent discovery he made around his compound
- His daughters had playfully planted yam seedling in an unusual space close to his kitchen during the lockdown
- Now, the children's joy can hardly be contained after their father discovered the yam seedlings had produced enough to feed the family
Two daughters of a Nigerian journalist, Henry Ifeanyi Ojelu, have not been able to contain their joy after realising that their little effort is now enough to provide a meal for the entire family.
The two children, Ada and Ezinne, according to their father, had playfully planted a yam seedling in an unusual space beside his kitchen in March 2020, just as the lockdown began.
Ojelu, who posted the photographs of the harvest and the children on Facebook, expressed bewilderment, an indication that he may not have expected the result of the daughters' collective action.
In the social media post, Ojelu described the result of the mini-farming by his daughters as a 'bountiful harvest'.
"During the lockdown in March, Ada and Ezinne decided to plant the head of one yam in the kitchen beside a little space on the fence. Today December 20, we decided to dig it up and behold such a bountiful harvest !!!!"
Reacting to the post, one of his friends, Pauline Nnabuihe said:
"Ohhh!!! Farming rules the world, kudos girls!!"

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported how Osasere Erhahon, a young Nigerian from Edo state, became one of the happiest persons recently as he made a massive yam harvest from the back of his house.
Erhahon had taken the decision to plant the yams in his compound out of boredom during the lockdown caused by COVID-19; he had no serious concentration on farming.

In a post on Facebook, the excited man explained that the yams grew naturally without fertiliser or any other additive.
