Strawbale Gardening can be a great way to grow food fast in small spaces, because it holds warmth, doesn't get too hot and increases microbial activity/ biodiversity. The podcast below provides a brief outline on the benefits for this form of gardening that is being used by many avid gardeners all around the globe.
In my travels to South East Asia in 2015 I was trialing many different plants to grow in the Philippines. I had a wonderful time and made some fantastic discoveries.
One one of them was a food that was growing wild like weeds, on the sidewalk and street paths. It was self sowing all over the place and growing to great heights.
I asked one of my local friends to prepare a dish for me and my daughter Karin, She created a tasty recipe using the wild Egyptian Spinach.
I was later to find out the local name for it was Salayut and it wasn't indigenous at all.
This plant had traveled all the way from Egypt and was regarded as delicacy over there,
Left is the first video I made on this plant when I was just starting to grow it as a seedling. Actually, I was interested to see if it would make a good microgreen. As it turned out it doesn't make a very good microgreen, but as a mature annual it's awesome.
The Egyptian spinach is also known as Jute, Molokhai. I found it to be very hardy and pest resistant. The grasshoppers didn't like it and I never once saw an Aphid, even on the plants I gave less care too.
So, I give a huge THUMBS UP for this amazing fast summer growing Spinach.
TO BUY EGYPTIAN SPINACH (Molokhai) SEEDS HERE
Just click the image or link above to purchase seeds. They are extremely cheap and after the first season you can then harvest your very own.
There will be even more than enough to give out to a few friends or just spread around the garden.
Please share this post with others that are interested in learning how to grow fresh food at home fast. Growing your very own fresh food is not only healthy, it's great for your well being and relaxing!

.The mission is to build a green wall using recycled plastic bottles. the student council representatives know what to do and set off fully competent to accomplish their missions.
Some go into the class rooms to show the kids how to cut the bottles and to help them with the process.
The bottles that are ready are taken outside and the solar garden team fastens the bottles to the wall.
the kids make their way to the school yard where they are greeted by members from the student council.
Just like a school yard the whole place is in a buzz of activity.
The instructions are easily understood, The work is easy and carried out industriously, and with a deep sense of purpose.
Tenderly and carefully the bottles are filled with fresh earth and seedling plants.
The work is overseen and carried out by the students themselves
Meanwhile another group of students assemble the water system. Which will be computer operated.
The students clean up the school yard and assemble in the schools common area.
One bottle, one seedling, and one day of gratifying team work.
The result. The school environment is lush and green. The wall fosters a sense of belonging. Making the the students feel they are part of this environmental achievement.
A source of great pride.
