What’s growing in this drought?


We have roses, hibiscus and marigolds blooming almost around the year. Not whole beds of them, but a shrub here and a bush there. Very individualistic, our plants are. And they love the sun and wind. (If you really want to know, I could give you a long list of plants that don’t.)


In the small (irrigated) vegetable patch we have corn and peas growing happily together, and carrots flourishing among the marigolds. As you can see, we still haven’t moved entirely from monoculture to polyculture. Patience, dear reader! The transformation will happen next year.

I found this baby banyan tree (ficus benghalensis) growing out of a rock. One day it’s probably going to take over our house and farm, but right now it’s the picture of innocence.
