Hawaii Kai Plant Exchange, May 12, 2020

Yes, we are back on at the Kaiser HS farmer’s market for second Tuesdays from 4-6pm. Check out our list of available plants. As always, this is a casual exchange: bring one, take one, leave a donation or not, your choice.

This month’s exchange is focusing on vegetables. There will be an ample supply of grape tomato and fennel seedlings. Both of these are low maintenance high-yield for the effort. They’re also well-adapted to Hawaii’s climate.

Last month’s seed giveaway was well-received, so we’ll put out Thai basil and fennel seeds for growing. If popular, we’ll make this a regular part of the usual exchange, where we select a few to highlight and give out. As a reminder, I keep a semi-current list of available seeds which you can check out [here]. If any interest you, send me an email at auntie@eastoahu96825.com and if available, I’ll have a packet ready for you when you stop by.

Update: Here are the plants we expect to have on Tuesday.

  • Thai Basil
  • Fennel
  • Mint
  • Grape Tomato
  • Bridal Bouquet
  • Nanea (native vine)
  • Hawaiian Woodrose
  • Krishna Tulsi (purple)
  • Coleus
  • Aloe
  • Wandering Jew (purple heart)
  • Papalo
  • Chive
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Epazote
  • Molokai Sweet Potato Vines for planting (purple)

Here are the selected seeds we will have:

  • Thai Basil
  • Long Bean
  • Grey Striped Sunflower (large edible seeds)
  • Fennel
  • Heat-tolerant Romaine Lettuce
