Nasturtium took to the dry tropical climate here immediately!
This one is a little more unusual, a hibiscus relative known as roselle whose flowers are brewed in a popular refresco here, "Te Jamaica"
Turns out the leaves have a tart cranberry-like flavor as well.
And despite the odds, i made multiple attempts to cultivate salad greens:
under the shady eaves of the house I have successfully grown spinach!
For comparison I've started another spinach inside on my kitchen windowsill. time will tell.
Probably the most successful salad supplement are my beet greens!
