I’ve been fascinated by plants, trees, ecosystems and the environment for almost 50 years.

I transformed my own half an hectare (1.25 acres) of the most desolated, high altitude mountainside land within 5 years into a lush, abundant, fruit and vegetable producing food forest.

I’ve made almost every possible mistake along the way, and now I’m sharing my knowledge and experience with anyone who gets excited about growing their own food, live a sustainable lifestyle, and be a positive change in the world...

Perennial vegetables



Thanks a million, Antonio, for the link.
Much appreciated.

[quote=Abraham Palma]In the end, there are not many perennial vegetables in the region, so maybe we would have more luck with self-seeding especies. It hard to be a lazy gardener![/quote]
Thank you for your contribution, Abraham...
I don’t really care if the perennial vegetables are originally Mediterranean...
I just want more that can grow in our Mediterranean climate.

Abraham Palma wrote:You are forgetting the vines, most of them are perennial:
grapes, berries and the likes. Although, they should count as fruit, I guess.


True, Abraham...
But yes... in this thread I wanted to focus on perennial vegetables as those are fewer and rarer than fruits (or berries).
What perennial vegetables do you grow in the South of Spain?
Greetings from the Canary Islands...

Good point for some folks to consider, Ben.
We actually have 14 hens and a rooster, but here it’s all good.
Make it an awesome day.

Beautiful photos from the last 2 days, Burra.
Your place in Portugal and the flowers reminds me of those in our place in Tenerife...
