This bunny appeared in my back yard a few months ago. He especially liked the crop of Mallow that we had growing around the yard back then after the rain. Humans can also eat mallow and I was munching on some of it too. It doesn’t have much flavor so it’s easy to munch on.
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. 🙂
So I found this little guy on my potato plant. Yes, my potato plant has run its course and I should be harvesting some potatoes soon.
It’s a preying mantis!! I looked up some YouTube videos of these little buggers and man they can be vicious. There is a video of a larger preying mantis eating a baby lizard alive!! It is not for the squeamish. Too bad this bad boy didn’t find his way to my infested kale plant.
