I came across this field of ruellias or mexican petunias, when I was out searching for Monarch caterpillars.
Hello folks, I have been busy, doing very little around the garden because it has been too wet. I am not complaining, just a bit perturbed and alarmed at the rate the weeds and grass is growing. I did manage to cut some of the grass on Friday just before a heavy downpour. I still have lots more to do hoping that there will be a dry day or two. Today, I had my garden helper open some dry coconuts (24 of them) for me. I am in the process of making some coconut oil. I will keep you updated on the results. I had seen the instructions on the island farm blog, so I decided to give it a try. I have been meaning to try this for about 10 years or so. As they say, better late than never!
