You know what they say… when the going gets tough the tough get going…and make a plan if they live in Zimbabwe.
This week Borrowdale Park has been a hive of activity and Rosie Dorward’s photographs tell the story. In these trying times maintaining a racecourse is expensive, and hosting race meetings even more so. The Mashonaland Turf Club had to make a plan – and decided to plant potatoes.
The MTC Board, and everyone else involved, get full marks for their innovative initiative. Fortunately, some people who know how to grow spuds were included in this line-up.
I don’t doubt that marketing arrangements were in hand before the first potato was planted. However, if one asks around one might be able to buy a pocket or two.
