Growing veggies in Kihei has been a challenge. Kihei is one of the hottest sections of Maui, so lots of vegetables can't survive the intense heat. I'm currently living in a condo, so space is limited too. It's been an adjustment living in a condo....but, it's totally worth it when you live a block from the ocean! During the winter months on Maui the temperatures cool down a little in Kihei, so it becomes more feasible to grow vegetables. Before I moved to Maui, I ALWAYS had a garden wherever I lived. I love growing my own food and feeling the fresh dirt in my hands. It's grounding and satisfying to feed myself from plants that I took the time to care for and love.
Below are a few photos of the veggies I'm trying to grow. Crossing my fingers they survive!
