Moringa + Jungle Peanut + Zucchini

After watching a few YouTube video on Moringa and Jungle Peanuts, I went ahead and bought a few seeds from Hinterland Trading Co.

I didn’t realize that Moringa oleifera, the “Miracle Plant” that many people are boasting about is actually the same plant that they call Malunggay in the Philippines. We mainly use it in a Chicken Ginger Soup called Tinola. Last year when I vacationed in the Philippines, I remember seeing Malunggay growing everywhere. We even found some near our resort in Subic and harvest some to cook… I’m excited to find some and heard that it is easy easy to grow and can easily be grow from cuttings. I can’t wait to get it to grow.

I planted the Malunggay and the Jungle Peanuts into cell pack and will pot them up once they sprout.

I also cleared the two large terra cotta pots in the front yard and planted a Black Beauty Zucchini in one and a Yellow Straightneck Squash in the other.

Last year, I wasn’t happy with the Zucchini in the Square Foot Garden in the back… so I yanked it out and planted it in the front in the terra cotta pot… it started getting big fast and fruiting, so I’ll plant Zucchinis in front from now on.
