Everything we have planted here so far has grown, at least
for a while. Some things grow PHENOMENALLY!!. (Some things grow for a
while, and then die.) If you like planting and harvesting, explore this
section of the website.
Grass, Trees & Shrubs.
rent our house, but we've decided to make it a showplace for Belizeans to admire
and emulate. We've planted grass, trees, and shrubs all over the lot. Come
here to see pictures and descriptions.
Growing Food. Much of the food
we eat is grown locally (mostly in Mexico) but some things are easier to grow,
or simply aren't sold in the local market. UPDATE:
(April 2001) Currently we are growing tomatoes successfully in the ground, but
something is attacking the plants. Judging from the local tomatoes in the
market, tomatoes just don't grow big and luxuriously dark red like they should
here. However, we can buy beautiful thin-skinned Romas here for 50
cents a pound! (Newer:
I think they smuggle them in from Mexico, but nobody is talking!)
Hydroponics. In the
we experimented with hydroponics. We brought all of our materials down
here, and we are in the process of setting up some plants to grow tomatoes and
some other vegetables in some quantity. Click here
to see how we are doing.
Elsewhere. (July 2007) My friend Ray Auxillou is experimenting with hydroponics over in
Cayo. Check out his website here. Newest.(Aug
2008) Ray is publishing lots of data on hydroponics. Look here.
