We had bough a piece of yam for cooking I noticed a slight projection on top which I sliced and planted it in a pot. This was almost a month ago. We have been having heavy rains these days and I was pleasantly surprised to see the sprout coming to life Shall leave it there for this year. I know the size of the yam will not be big.
This past week we ate some delicious "weeds"! Another great dandelion salad including a couple flowers, Siberian Miners Lettuce on a smoked salmon burger, and I also mixed in a few leaves of sheep sorrel in a store bought salad! Yum!
I picked sugar peas, lettuce, and squash this morning before the "monsoon" hit. Yesterday the green bean plants dried off enough for me to safely pick beans--three quarts of them! I'll make up a small bag of fresh vegetables and drop them off to a friend who can't garden. He appreciates the veggies, and I appreciate not having to deal with an overabundance!
Spotted a mango sapling in one of our flower pots. How it got there is a questions I do not think I can answer. We actually have yielding mango trees but just could not ignore this. One more mango tree will not hurt. I have put it in a plastic bag for safe keeping and once the rain subsides it will be planted in the ground
