Day 11: My Drought Tolerant and Edible Moringa Tree Can Change the World!!

So a few months back I learned about the Moringa tree.  It’s a very hearty tree that grows well in high temperatures and doesn’t need a lot of water.  Best of all, the leaves and seeds are highly nutritious.  Some people think that these trees can play a big role in fighting hunger and malnutrition too!!  Do an internet search and you’ll find a lot of information.

I live in Southern California, land of little water, and I think it’s about time that we let our landscapes serve more that one purpose.   These plants can beautify our lives while providing highly nutritious food.

So I ordered some seeds and planted four of them at the beginning of April.  Here are my little Moringas.  I need to replant them soon.  They didn’t do very well when it was cooler but they are growing much faster now.

Three of the four seeds sprouted, one is a runt, one is medium sized and one is doing very well.  Thanks for reading.  🙂
