What edibles could I grow in one semester?
I'm considering spending a semester on Big Island next year in Hilo, from Jan through mid-May. Supposing I find a rental with some garden space, what would I have time to grow? I'm hoping for fruits, veggies, seeds, legumes, edible flowers...anything edible. I'm hoping for plants I won't have to fight too hard to keep the bugs away.
I have been gardening for a few years in Montana with our 90 day growing season. So you can imagine how my mind is running wild thinking about the 120+ days I would have to possibly grow something in Hawaii.
Ok, when I said anything, I meant anything except for zucchini. That's one of the few things that grows like crazy in Montana and I'm not sure I could handle it all year long! ;)
