    Default Today's Harvest

    After five years of attempting to/learning how to garden in Nicaragua, I finally feel confident in my abilities and am ready to forge ahead full steam. It's time for more raised beds and that means I need more room. Today, Roger and I took down one of the many coconut trees in the yard using a come-along and a bow saw.

    What a fun way to work off last night's beers!
    Today's harvest of asparagus beans, tomatoes, okra and sweet corn has my mouth watering. Time to plant the new seeds Mike brought me! If all goes well, the new garden beds will be chock full of Suyo cucumbers, red pear maters, Arkansas Traveler maters, yellow scallop squash and Charentais melons. Y'all cross your fingers, por favor!

    These are all heritage varieties, which is all that was left for sale in Canada this time of year. The nursery lady told me all of them would be good to go in a hot tropical climate. My experience with heritage varieties back in Canada is that they present more problems in terms of germination, and they also throw off more sports, that is, malshaped fruit. But boy are they tons more delicious than the more common varieties.

    If you can get those charentais to germinate boy are you in for a face full of flavour.

    Damn I wish I had a little finca of my own, sure do miss gardening.

    I'm super excited about all the seeds you brought! The challenge of growing new stuff in this climate is one thing, placing them on my table for consumption is another, being able to sell them in SJDS and Granada will be the icing on the cake! Gracias, mi amigo!!

    Cat, the ones we have here are "Sweet" is that why the name or the size....

    My son found some plants in the dump brought 'em home and turned out to be the nicest things ever thrown in a fresh salad.....
    To be called a "Has Been" I must surmise, is much Greater than to be called a "Nevah Been"... JW...
