I am so happy we found Dave, the "veggie grower".
As the title of the blog says, Dave's garden is completely hydroponic, no soil.
No pesticides either. He grows everything in what appeared to be rain gutters, the same kind you would attach to your roof.
His system was very organized & technical...he uses computers to schedule the precise watering. It was beautiful & amazing to see.
Each item is $5.00. Seemed pricey at 1st but everything is pricey in the Bahamas & considering the size of plant Dave gives you, it was a bargain. He includes the entire plant & if kept in a little water back at home, Dave says they can last 2weeks. We bought arugala & cilantro.
Scott & I agree...the best we've ever tasted. All of our meals the past few days have included these delicious fresh greens. We've learned to appreciate things like that. Last week we enjoyed some cheerios with fresh milk given to us...it was THE BEST cereal ever!
We took the dinghy into town today & bought some conch..already out of the shell & cleaned. Spoiled, I know. We splurged & also bought some limes & tomatoes to make conch salad w/our hydroponic veggies.
It's almost Friday everybody! Hang in there & get ready for your weekend!! We love & miss you all so much!!!
It's not all play time for us. We are going to start varnishing the teak on the outside of the boat. Varnishing is a dreaded, but necessary chore on a boat. It requires taping, sanding, cleaning, sanding, 4-5 coats of varnishing with 24hr dry periods & sanding in between . Ugh. We've been putting this chore off but it's time.
