Mission Statement

My goal with mande plants is to teach about medicinal and edible plants, show how to grow these plants, where to find these plants, and how to use these plants. There are many useful botanicals in our world. I will growing seasonal crops and perennial edibles using organic methods as best as possible. One of my long term goals is to grow a temperate food forest garden. As I grow new plants and harvest them I will be sharing photos and details on this blog. All photos on this blog are taken by me. If you like this blog and you would like to help me further my research you can use the paypal donate button on the right. All donations will be used to buy tools, plants, seeds, and pay for expenses needed to develop gardens.

What's Blooming in March 2012?

As we enter spring some plants are waking up and budding, while others are putting out flowers.

                                    I planted these fava beans back in November.

These are the flowers of the Sierra Gooseberry.  I discovered this little shrub growing on the side of hill near my garden, next to an elderberry tree.

This little nightshade is Solanum xanti.  As far as I know it has no edible uses.
