One of the crops on site that is really enjoying all the sunshine and rain is callaloo. We first grew this last year as part of the Sowing New Seeds project. It didn't do too well last year - not surprising as it is a Caribbean vegetable that likes the heat! This year it has set itself all over the garden like a weed! For more information check out the Sowing New Seeds web site. It can be used much like spinach, but for an authentic taste of the Caribbean - here is a link to a traditional Jamaican recipe. http://eatjamaican.com/recipes/Jamaican-steamed-callaloo.html     So start experimenting and enjoy!
