Community Garden Survival Foods
It is very hot and many gardeners at the Community Garden are leaving their soil fallow but there are still plants that continue to grow bountifully in the heat.
This Ceylon Spinach has leaves the size of dinner plates, and the native passion fruit provides sweet passion fruit flavored berries consistently.
The wandering cress seems to be another ongoing success. The leaves have a great nutty flavor.
From my own patch I continue to get strawberries, tomatoes, ceylon spinach, beans, carrots, shallots and my very special white eggplant.
