I started out among the dwarf fruit trees but they were all citrus and I already have a lime and a lime mandarin, so I looked at the more exotic fruit trees/shrubs. I tried barbados cherry before and it was in a swampy area and did not survive, so I got one of those and planted it in the veggie patch. They can be pruned into a small bush. The cherries are quite sour but chock a block full of vitamin C. I sowed a handful of bok choy on either side, and covered them with a fallen paw paw leaf to add some shade. Most of my bok choy is going to seed, now I am going to have to collect the seed before the pods explode. What does everyone else do - do you pick them once the pods have formed, and then hang them to dry?
I think I got a great selection of really unusual lovely healthy plants. If you are in the area this is a great place to hang out for a couple of hours! Thank you Limberlost for donating this prize!
