Growing local

Comestibles out back on their blanket of green suggesting a promise of meals to come.

Back to jungle mode. Ups and downs and undergrowth is the way I like it. No bare soil. Wall to wall Scurvy Weed (Egads!). Talk about greeeeen!

Spring onions,sweet peppers and maybe a Calabacitas...

Daikon Radishes with chook feed -- ie: kale.

Corn -- Aztec multicoloured.Tomatoes and another gourd.

More green stuff. There are some Serpent Gourds in there. And tomatillos.


Vetiver, radishes and leaf celery among a sea of Scurvy Weed. Vetiver is planted every 90 cm and I've added Canavalia (Beach Bean-- a legume) to the mix hoping it does better than peanut as a N-fixer.

Sishito pepper, Scurvy Weed,Yacón and Trombochino zuke. Choko vines in background.

Suyo Long Cucumber, Tommy Toe Tomato and Bottle Gourd surrounded by...Scurvy Weed...and a Vetiver.

2 ponds and Water Spinach.Croak.Croak.

Cucumbers and bottle gourd,.

Jalapeno peppers....

Looking north east towards the house. ....Climbing beans at right.

Tomatoes and corn. A climbing bean too.

Looking south. Crate garden with assorted herbs. On right Epazote.

Looking south west.

Herbs, curry leaf, katuk, rosemary ... looking toward the Dixie cup plunge pool. Plenty of free ranging Dragon Fruit. Behind all that is the chook pen. The Katuk makes an archway.

It's a jungle out there!

You must have had a good lot of rain Dave.  The green jungle is providing well.  I thought I would see more vetiver.  Love the vines growing everywhere. The milk crates are still powering on.  

Ian just picked a lovely big purple dragonfruit, we will disappear soon. Keep up the good work.
