Because of longevity spinach.
Man, I’ve heard of some miraculous uses for the stuff, but that’s impressive.
I haven’t ramped up my production of tropical greens since moving to Alabama, but I do have an Okinawa spinach, a couple of longevity spinach and a Surinam purslane kicking around. We had our first frost last night and I got some things indoors, but I’ll have to go to the old gardens and see if the Okinawa spinach survived.
If you have a warm climate you can eat greens year-round with little difficulty. In Grenada I would just stick piece of longevity spinach in the ground and they would root and grow.
I didn’t have lots of women following me home, though. Maybe it’s because my wife was too much for the competition.
