Maui organic gardening...
We are so glad we started a couple of gardens this year, as the weather has been great - lots of sunshine. We could stand a little more rain, but at least there's the hose.
We went away to the mainland for a week, and when we came back the transformation was amazing. Even this past week has shown some incredible growth. The key is to use lots of good organic fertilizers. The bugs don't stand a chance when the plants grow so vigorously.
I just had to brag about my great Haiku garden! This picture only shows half of it... the other half is filled with more tomatoes and about 5 kinds of peppers, including lots of hot ones. I want to start another garden so we always have something coming off.
We are already eating:
- pole beans
- cherry tomatoes
- basil, dill, cilantro, Thai basil
- 6 kinds of lettuce, and other assorted salad greens
- kale, mustard greens
- marigolds (yes, you can put the petals in your salad)
Grow a garden yourself, it's so worth it. MORE UPDATE PICS
Aloha from Maui!
