Okinawa spinach

This attractive perennial herb (Gynura crepioides) has half purple, half dark green leaves that make a delicious addition to salads, or can be cooked as a potherb. It propagates well from cuttings, that you must take before winter as the plant will not survive a freeze. Rooting the cutting in water before planting so that it forms good roots improves results.

As with most cuttings, remove all but the top few leaves of a cutting to reduce water loss until it grows new roots. Rooting is very slow in cold weather.

Okinawa lettuce can be used in landscaping as a groundcover in full sun (with enough water) or it does well in partial shade. It needs little, but does appreciate some soil amending/fertilizing.

It can be cooked like spinach – but don’t overcook it as it can become unpleasantly slimy.

Dumped and cleaned things up this weekend. It was nice to get back out and get my hands dirty.   Pulled and dumped everything, even a few still producing plants, but it was time to go…

 

Grapes are coming along, hopefully I can keep the deer away for a while

Dedicated an entire day to cleaning and moving things to a better location.  Tossed out a LOT of stuff that just needed to go.  Got the worm farm back to 100% production, and have started producing the “worm tea” for the plants.

Planted lots of peppers, tomatoes, turnips, watermelons, pumpkins, and okra.  We’ll see how it all does.  The grapes seem to like the warmer weather, and have really taken off.  Right now, I’m just focusing on bringing back to life what I’ve ignored to long.

Working on a new watering plan, but that will come in the future.

Its a shambles here at the farm, things have been neglected for to long.

Life has been busy, a 5 year old, a full time job, 2 part time jobs, and more hobbies than I’d like to admin have left the farm a shambles.     We’re down to about 25% of what WAS here, and there is tons of work to day.

Soon to get things cleaned up, and show some better views.

Here you can see trees moved that cant stand up in pots, bags of Fafard 3B that have a life of their own, and my latest batch of hydroponics that I got the chemistry wrong, and I’ve likely killed them.  Its a sad day at the farm.
