My Backyard African Vegetable Garden is about growing indigenous or ancestral African or tropical vegetables in the USA. I have been pushing the zone and growing African vegetables in my backyard in zone 9 for more than 20 years. My mission is encourage everyone to grow atleast one vegetable in their backyard.
I grow Bitterleaves, okra, Anchia, African garden eggs, African garden huckleberry (njamsu), waterleaves, sweet Bitterleaves, ugu (okong obong) etc in my garden.
I am also experimenting with tropical fruits like pawpaw (papaya), guava, and soursop
Growing your own food is something I very strongly believe in. Aside from the obvious benefits of getting to enjoy the freshest, most nutrient dense version of the produce, gardening to me is therapeutic. I don’t know how to explain it, but it just grounds me.
I microblog my gardening happiness project on the YouTube, Instagram and on YAJE’s Garden Facebook page.
