Gardening Afloat

Unread postby marinetrader » Sun Jan 13, 2013 9:42 am

My wife and I love fresh vegetables, especially those that are grown organically. We have our own garden aboard our trawler but are limited as to what we can grow due to space constraints. But we have figured out how to make it work......check it out here......

We just got back from the local farmers market (opened every Saturday morning here) and the admiral got everything she needed for a veggie chili..... The boat is already smelly yummy.......And I still have 7 hrs till we eat it (but DO see a lot of tasting during the afternoon...)

Yeah, I like the odors of good food on the stove too, especially on cool, blustery days like today when soup, chili or something hearty is prefect. When it's not so good is after I've totally pigged-out and the boat still smells of it.

It's not on the menu, but we do have a 26 year old Philidrendron in our head. It's joined us on many trips to the Bahamas and has never been questioned upon return!
Take care and joy, Aythya crew
