The prodigal returns....
I have been really busy in my garden and I am about to fill you in on what I have growing since the last post.
Um.......edible plants, that is........
Here we go:
Paw paw (lots);
Lemon tree (10years old and a housewarming present);
dwarf orange (Washington navel);
dwarf blueberry (this is the folly one!);
basil, (lemon, thai, purple and common);
pineapple (lots, with about 4 just starting to fruit);
Louffa (also known as Italian luffa);
cherry tomatoes (self sown and lots of them);
beetroot (for the leaves mainly);
broccoli (also for the leaves);
passionfruit (leaves for the leaf eaters and then they leave my other plants alone);
spinach (2 varieties which perform well in the tropics);
jasmine (the flowers are those used in tea);
pumpkin (risen from the compost soil I spread around);
mustard, osaka purple (which have a bit of heat in them when they are raw);
spearmint;lettuce (about 3 different varieties of what some people call 'fancy lettuce');
marigold (calendula officianalis, the edible one for its leaves and flowers);nasturtium (leaves and flowers also edible);
torch ginger (edible-these I have transplanted from where they were crowded out by mondo grasses and stopped flowering. The build up/wet will be the time for me to find out if they like their new home. They are an understory plant so need some protection from direct sun. I have planted them under the terminalia tree.)
Not sure if I have listed everything so I will add more as I go along........
