A roundup of edibles in my garden

26 09 2021

How does your garden grow? Do you know where your food comes from? In North America, the fall season is harvest time. My hubby Pete and his family harvested peaches, apples, tomatoes, and cucumbers; they ”put up” or preserved the surplus to eat later.

Here in the Islands, in our own small garden, we are thankful for these fruits and vegetables:

Ma’afala breadfruit
Starfruit (carambola)
Sweet potato
Noni (Morinda citrifolia)
Red hibiscus for tea
Haden mango
Lilikoʻi passion fruit
Kukui (candlenut) tree
Kukui nuts for ʻinamona

There you go! If you don’t have room for a garden, consider growing in pots, perhaps even a tray of herbs in your kitchen. Or you could go to the local farmers market and support a local grower. 👩‍🌾


Be well.
