Some Information about items in this video :
Papalo (Porophyllum ruderale): This plant is native to Central and South America and is used extensively in Mexican cuisine. The name “papalo” translates to “butterfly” in the native Nahuatl language. The plant is unique in its taste, which is like cilantro but more pungent and with a hint of mint and citrus. Papalo is a heat-loving plant and is typically planted in late spring. It grows well in various soils.
Everglades Tomato (Solanum pimpinellifolium): This wild tomato variety is native to Florida and the Caribbean. The Everglades tomato plant is a sprawling vine that can reach lengths up to 10 feet. It produces a high yield of small, cherry-sized fruits that are known for their sweet and tangy taste. It’s also known for its heat and humidity tolerance, making it an excellent plant for southern gardens or for those seeking a variety that can withstand intense summer climates.
Coyote Tomato (Lycopersicon pimpinellifolium): Coyote tomatoes, similar to Everglades, belong to the species Solanum pimpinellifolium. This particular variety is native to Mexico. It is a wild tomato known for its high yield of small, yellow, sweet, and fruity tomatoes. The plant itself is indeterminate, meaning it continues to grow and produce fruit throughout the growing season until killed by frost. It’s very hardy, tolerant of harsh conditions, and has a reputation for being disease-resistant.
French Marigold (Tagetes patula): French Marigolds are a popular variety of marigold flowers native to Mexico and Guatemala. These plants are well-known for their bright, cheerful colors ranging from yellow and gold to orange and red, often within the same flower. French Marigolds usually grow between 6 and 12 inches high (around 15-30 cm), although some varieties can get slightly taller. The flowers are quite distinctive, with a full, dense appearance due to the numerous, tightly packed petals. They bloom from late spring until frost. One of the best-known characteristics of French Marigolds is their pest-repelling properties. Gardeners often plant them as companion plants to vegetables, as they are believed to repel harmful nematodes and other garden pests. They are easy to grow and care for, making them a great plant for beginner gardeners. They prefer full sun and well-drained soil and can tolerate a range of soil types.

About Michelle In The Meadow :
I’m growing on a 1/4 acre suburban lot. I started gardening here 4 years ago and am glad you are here. We have more than 80 individual fruit trees and shrubs and more than a dozen different kinds of annuals growing on this property. The slopes make for some interesting ways to garden, but we’re trying to make the best of it. On the first Sunday evening of each month (7PM Eastern), I go live on YouTube sharing updates and answering your questions. If you enjoyed this video, please give it a thumbs up and consider subscribing to follow along on all the happenings in my Northeast Florida Zone 9A Garden.
Until next time, my friends, remember to drink plenty of water, wear high-quality sunscreen and have a fantastic day.
