Not long ago I posted about a type of tropical spinach, the Pacific Spinach, after I had succeeded in identifying it. In doing so, I mentioned other types, that it wasn't, but one of which I was then going to get, if that makes sense. It's here now and planted, Okinawan Spinach, with mulch all around. It's a bit wilty, having just been put into the ground. You will notice it has a sort of maroon color underneath the leaves and green on top. The Pacific variety is more tree like, this one is a lower growing, ground cover sort, hopefully. Trust me, this is going somewhere.
Next I had cilantro starting to flower and so clipped the tops. Then there were lots of dandelion greens here and there, which you know are good to eat (check the link if you don't believe it) as well as being fiercely independent. You don't need to plant them. This is beginning to sound like my review post on the Hunger Games. Okay, so yesterday it was cool and rainy in Hilo and I was right by my favorite place for Duck Fun, otherwise known as duck soup with noodles, and various fresh greens thrown in before serving, all of which I lovvvvve. Hurray for Duck soup! There was enough to take home for another big bowlful, though not too many greens left.
