Moringa, The Miracle Tree Planted and Sprouting

Suzi AKA DesertDanceSeptember 6, 2013

Woo Hoo! A couple weeks ago there was an article in the news about the health benefits of the Moringa Oleifera Tree.

I researched it, and discovered we live in the perfect climate with the ideal soil. Immediately, I went to Ebay and bought 45 seeds. I soaked 5, and planted 9 total. Some soaked and some not.

4 days later, I was wild crazy to discoved 6 of the 9 had sprouted.

We circled the little sprouted seeds (about 1-2 inches tall) with chicken wire protection from those hungry rabbits that lurk here.

We planted them like a living hedge, and will keep them trimmed and compact. Can't wait to try the entire plant. It's all edible and packed with nutrients!

Well, 5 days later they are now 6" tall and very leafy! We planted 4 more seeds. to replace the ones that didn't make it. One made it, but before we got it into it's gopher wire cage, some critter bit it off!! YIKES! It's little trunk is still green, but it doesn't have one leaf! It could sprout from below, but as insurance, we planted another seed next to it.

I'm so excited that these trees grow FAST! Can't wait to start the FEAST!
