Mahalo, Gayle. We like to add lots of compost. I save all of my raw kitchen discards - peels, ends, leaves, stems, whatever doesn't end in a recipe or the cookpot, plus coffee grounds, tea bags and egg shells. We also mulch quite a bit, either with mulch we can get at the ciry transfer station (dump) or shredded newspapers or a combination of both.


Your garden looks wonderful. Do you have hints on building up your soil and mulching?



Lucy, you need to get in touch with Barbara Fahs who owns Hi'iakas Garden in Puna. She also has lots of lava but has found a way to grow all sorts of stuff in it. I will send you her e-mail address..


I'm so envious of your soil! I have to struggle to get a few herbs to grow, but I'm getting a few.


Thank you, j r., These photos were taken of our previous garden. It was the one destroyed by wild pigs. The new one is coming along great but the plants are not as lush and pretty yet...! Oh, except for the Cuban oregano and the sick oregano which are in another area and were not damaged!


Your herb garden looks absolutely wonderful Sonia. Growing herbs seems to be be one of the easiest things to do in a small urban garden. Right now I have rosemary, cilantro, parsley and chives.

Thanks for the tip about the microwave, I never heard of that before.
