We have a new blog post up at Porvenir Design on how to cultivate vanilla for the tropical homestead.
You can read all about it here: Vanilla Cultivation at Porvenir Design. We believe this crop is the perfect fit in the tropical food forest and properly growing and curing your own vanilla may be intimidating at first, but with this information, you should have the confidence to move forward with planting!
Let me know if you have any questions!
