I got a few new plants but they aren't all veggies.
I have pak wan. I actually had a plant years ago but it only grew one long stalk and it died. I asked Frankie, who I bought is from how come. He said I had to cut it to make it bushy. OH DAH! It got buried in the weeds and I lost it and I finally found another so round 2.

I also got coleus canina - the scaredy cat plant. It is supposed to be a cat deterrent. It does stink. It bloomed a purple wierd looking flower then it doesn't look so good now, but it is alive. I got another one. I am still trying to figure out the best way to grow this.
I found another pineapple sage. I had it in the herb garden for years. Something is eating it, maybe snails. I hope it makes it, it was just s hard to find.
I got some coreopsis and gaura for the perennial border. I am hoping they will be good for attracting pollinators. I did get a sterile gaura so it won't produce pollen.
I just planted some perpetual spinach which is related to swiss chard, but is a new plant for me. So far it is doing well. It is only a few weeks old.
I planted ajaka basil. It is a type of holy basil. The one I had growing in the herb garden never bloomed and it is resistant to downy. I have to see what it tastes like. Holy basil has a bite.
I tried some new varieties to cucumbers shiyo kyuri and jade cucumber. Shiyo kyuri looks like suyo long but is not parthenocarpic. I am having problems with fruit flies so my yields are not very good, but the plant does produce fruit. They just are getting stung. I have to put out some bait. Another thing to add on my list of things to do.
I planted parthenon zucchini, I think. It is making male and female flowers so maybe it was tigress instead. It has the same problem as the cucumber, it is being stung by fruit flies so I have gotten only 1 fruit from it so far.
This year, I had a lot of small pieces of ginger so I planted them in multiple pots instead. Instead of one I have 4 pots, but I have to get a bigger pot for one of them. The pot is deforming because the root is pushing against it. I still have another 4-5 months to go before I harvest. I may have to harvest early.
I have not planted much in the main garden at all this year. Hopefully I'll get something in it soon. I have to start planting the broccoli now get some garlic in the frig.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
