(Walk around farm)

Prabhupāda: Oh.

Viśvambhara: . . . they produce a type of nut (chestnut).

Prabhupāda: Who eats that?

Viśvambhara: We can eat. We roast in the oven. It is very good, offer it to the Deities.

Prabhupāda: (break) . . . a small potato, in the śukta you gave it?

Harikeśa: No, that was radish.

Viśvambhara: See from the garden many tomatoes and squash. Cauliflower is coming also. (break)

Prabhupāda: . . . a large stock of water.

Viśvambhara: Yes. There is lots of water underground, but it requires great equipment to bring it up in order to water all the land.

Prabhupāda: What is the difficulty?

Viśvambhara: We have only the previous pump, which was here before, and it's not strong enough to water everything. So we need to install a new pump to get more water.

Prabhupāda: This land ours?

Hari-śauri: Yes. Where that hump is on the brown field, up to that, where that tree is. But most of our land extends this way.

Bhagavān: Our land is mostly here.

Viśvambhara: We have just taken barley from this field, Śrīla Prabhupāda. Many grains.

Viśvambhara: This is some, some buckwheat barley.

Prabhupāda: Hare Kṛṣṇa. (break) . . . castle?

Viśvambhara: This is what they call a water castle. The water goes up and there's a big reservoir, and then by pressure it distributes to the houses.

Prabhupāda: So it is not being used?

Viśvambhara: Oh, yes. (break) . . . where we grow most of the flowers for the Deities.

Prabhupāda: Oh, that greenhouse. That's a greenhouse?

Bhagavān: We have built that this year. (japa) (break)

Hari-śauri: How many cows?

Viśvambhara: We have three milking cows and four that will be milking. We're experimenting with different types of cows, the Brown Swiss. (break)

Prabhupāda: Thank you. (break) . . . you have got?

Haribolānanda: One.

Prabhupāda: What does it do?

Haribolānanda: Pulling the loads, heavy loads. (break)

Bhagavān: . . . prabhus, it's too narrow here right now. Prabhupāda will be going in . . . (break)

Viśvambhara: Yes, the trees also is our forest.

Hari-śauri: These are nice paths for walking, very open.

Bhagavān: This way we have to go.

Prabhupāda: Why they congesting the city, hellish. Such life. (break) . . . very nicely, people may see . . . (indistinct) . . . thank you. All right. (laughter)

Devotee: What did he do?

Hari-śauri: He was going to give him a flower, and then just as Prabhupāda reached out he took it back.

Prabhupāda: Hare Kṛṣṇa. (break) . . . to capture him. (cow bells) He's very young?

Viśvambhara: Yes. One year.

Prabhupāda: Bull.

Viśvambhara: Cow. (break)

Bhagavān: . . . this here, and the vegetable garden is up here. (devotees chanting japa)

Haribolānanda: This is mung ḍāl, Śrīla Prabhupāda, mung ḍāl. And these are marigold flowers. We put them in the greenhouse because it gives a longer season. Then we'll have more flowers for the garlands for the Deities.

Bhagavān: These are all table grapes.

Viśvambhara: They are melons, Śrīla Prabhupāda. You can see here, Śrīla Prabhupāda.

Hari-śauri: What are they?

Viśvambhara: Melons.

Hari-śauri: There are melons also, Śrīla Prabhupāda.

Haribolānanda: Here are flowers. This is a heater for the winter to keep the temperature up. We try to grow tomatoes for the Deities in the winter.

Prabhupāda: Hare Kṛṣṇa. (end)
