Old guy needs advice
My diabetes has worsened. The kidneys are failing. It is definitely possible for me to stop any further damage. I must eat better.
I live just south of New Orleans. Amaranth, Malabar Spinach and Bitter Melon will grow here in the this humid and hot climate.
Are there any other Asian vegetables (like Chinese Broccoli "Kailaan") that can withstand our heat and humidity? There was a post here a while back that said the Chinese broccoli could withstand the summer conditions here in SE Louisiana. Then, someone wrote that the best time to plant would be for a fall crop. Saying the summer was too harsh in this zone.
My guess is that the gardeners from north Florida to South Texas should have similar conditions to what I have here. Please post what you are able to grow during the summer?
I am trying to update my "trade list" and haven't a clue how. Can someone please explain the process in such a way that an old guy can understand? I am looking to trade for some Amaranth and bitter melon seeds.
