We've started our garden. I can appreciate beautiful flowers, but I only plant things that I can eat. Our first Maui planting includes tomatoes (five varieties, per Michele), eggplant, kale, onions, carrots, green and yellow zucchini, cucumbers and staple herbs like rosemary, parsley, basil and cilantro. A solid start.
Michele says that everything seems to be growing right before our eyes. You blink and a seedling has pushed itself up an inch out of the soil. It's intuitive that the sun and soil would enhance the process and quality of food that we usually grow in NY, it is more lush and less hardy here, but it is still incredible to see our food flourish so quickly. Can't wait to get it all on the plate!
