We traveled over 300 miles for them … so I hope they appreciate our company and we can all live happily ever after.
Yes, we gave it much thought, we sourced locally & via local nurseries’ contacts, but when all came to naught, we decided to ‘bite the bullet’ and hit the road. Yes, we crossed the state and went to the gulf coast to visit ECHO nursery seeking specific plants. Crazy? That depends …
Since we were all the way there, I decided that apart from adopting our pet-plants, we should stay the night and take a tour of their “food farm” in the morning to learn more about edible forest planting.
Many of the plants they have, I have too but how it’s grown for better harvest is knowledge gained by yours truly.
Eye opening gardening methods taught to poor countries, is researched here, at the center, and seems to work so easily. I began my food growing frenzy 3 years ago and I know that there is so much more to learn and learn I did.
BUT ~ the crux now is to make sure those 3 precious pet plants of ours (the Beaumont Macadamia Nut, the Katuk and the Edible Hibiscus) are kept happy and contented growing in our yard.
