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. 🙂
