|French Green Beans|
While harvesting for dinner with Jennifer last night it occurred to me that I haven't shown any pictures of our gardens. So tonight I'll show a few.
These beans grow very easily but are a little hard to get out of their shells. They have provided several meals this month.
|Sweet Potatoes in front of Taro|
|Basil and Swiss Chard|
Basil grows so well. Its flowers attracts bees which we hear are in trouble here in Hawaii and around the globe. It makes wonderful pesto. We use swiss chard for stir fry along with sweet potato vine tips and beet tops.
We grow all of these wonderful foods with NO STORE BOUGHT FERTILIZER. That's right, we propogate microbes to do natures work. They break down the organic material and soil minerals and work with the plants roots to feed the plant. This week while harvesting, I was blown away by finding large colonies of white mold on the plant roots. These colonies are microscopic microbes in such huge numbers that they are visible.
