I learned a lot so far this week.....

Thanks to a caller hailing from west Africa to Monday's 'Sustainable Living' show on Tampa radio station  http://www.wmnf.com/  I've learned about the 'Fluted Pumpkin' and its centuries'  long usefulness as a food and medicinal crop. Two friends have reminded me of the remarkable nutritional content of the leaves of the Moringa, and so I have stuck cuttings from my east-side Moringa tree into my south bed that will soon be home to a bog garden of Guava and Jaboticaba trees to give me luscious fruits until I am a 93 year old gracile senior citizen singing 'I Am The Walrus' hanging clothes on the line one lovely spring morning.
