Edible Wall Update

As March draws to a close I thought I would give you an update on the Junglefy ecoVert herb wall that was installed in late January.

As you can see the plants are enjoying the direct winter sun that is now drenching this wall in the morning.

The top section has lush warrigal greens, feverfew, some mignonette lettuce, sorrel, vietnamese mint, and marigolds

The bottom section has some mustard greens, catnip, more mustard greens, chives, mint julep and coral lettuce and some dead zatar!

The zatar needed more direct sunlight and couldn't hang in there. I'm going to have to pull it out and replace it with maybe some Asian greens.

The warrigal greens seem to be thriving in these vertical conditions

And the chives are doing well too..

I'm harvesting the sorrel regularly in salads and steamed with main courses

The mignonette is really tasty and I have to control my culling to give it a chance to thicken up.

I bought these mustard greens as seedlings from the herb stall at the Sydney Fox Studio Farmers Markets.
They're pungent and crunchy.

All in all they're all looking so much happier. Bring on the sun!
