Could it be a "meloncillo" (mongoose) a marten or a fox?

Geoff Lawton's page has a lot of information of how to go about it. I hope it helps!

Maybe beans?  Fast growing, nitrogen fixers, and might be able to harvest some before the first frost. If not, let them rot over  the Fall/Winter as green manure.
Last year while visiting  Puerto Rico I bought a squash at an organic market. I liked the taste ( butter nut like,) and saved some seeds. I planted two seeds and got 34 lbs of squash. In Virginia zone 6 with hit and humid summers. It is a moschatta named soler. I found a seller. They have a couple other varieties, including one, taina dorada,  that doesn't spread to the next county.

There is also another herb, "culantro", aka as  long leaf cilantro, (Eryngium Foetidum) that is used in the Caribbean and in Southeast Asia  for cooking . The flavor is very similar. Perhaps it might be an alternative to those who are too sensitive to the the flavors of cilantro.

I've tried growing it with no success (not giving up), however in the tropics it grows like a weed in moist environments. I am able to purchase the leaves (rootless) in asian supermarkets.

Where are your trees planted? It looks like a school maybe?



Yes, in a school court yard next to the cafeteria.

Unfortunately, due to renovations, it'll be destroyed.

I guess theoretically it will work, however, cedar shavings takes longer to decompose than sawdust. We've used peat moss for a hunting cabin outhouse and  by August it is completely  broken down.
