Jamaican Urban Organic Farming #24: Callaloo Update

Callaloo Update

In October, I began a set of new crops; the cucumbers, callaloo, pakchoi and okra. These proved quite a surprise because they threatened to overrun their containers and my sun room, in time. Ultimately, I found them a cool spot in my Jamaican Urban Organic Garden to chill and grow a their leisure.

The Callaloo plants have proven resilient. I was able to put them in a spot that receives half and half sun and shade. Seeing as it is one of the few vegetables I eat, I am looking forward to it flourishing.

I also managed to transplant about 20 plants and pray that the garden pests do them no damage.

My garden supports a whole ecosystem.  I was relaxing in my garden chair when I heard this little guy munching behind me.

The Game Changers

These are the game changers for my garden. I put in those tall plants you see to the back wall and they raise the level of the garden. The plants came from a friend’s garden that was already overrun and made totally unruly by plants.

I was also able to create an additional flower bed, on the shady side of the garden.

HURRICANE MATTHEW

This was early October when Hurricane Matthew was stomping through the Caribbean. Jamaica was miraculously spared, but we got some rain. I took most of the containers inside because they were being flooded.

My potatoes were the casualty because the blue buckets turned to mush and I never again saw a sign of life.

garden pests

By now, I was learning a harsh lesson about garden pests; especially because I am trying very hard not to use pesticides. It is difficult holding off. We will see. They have decimated my onion and scallion population.

The Lessons

At this point, I began to learn a few more lessons. Plants and grass don’t always mix. The grass has a massive root system that depletes the nutrients which the flowers need. SO I created a border after removing the grass from the flower bed section.

I also went full speed into container garden.Bottle of choice, iCool.  Seeds were from HiPro. Unfortunately they were massively disappointing, I have only I morning glory plant to show for it.
