Not another tree!

I'm gonna have to buy another lot if I keep running into these miracle trees. First it was Neem and now Moringa. A conversation on a Mexico message board started out about Celiac disease and ended up about Moringa that is supposed to lessen the symptoms. Then people posted links but mostly where you could buy the products ... not seeds or trees.

From a site that sells Moringa products
Moringa is considered to be the most nutrient rich plant on earth. Moringa leaves have been consumed by Asian people for millennia as a healthy food product. Containing more than 90 nutrients and 46 antioxidants, these vivid green leaves are nature’s super-power food.
I eventually found some nurseries in Colima that sell the trees so will start looking around here. Also found a few articles about/by Mark Olsen who teaches Biology in UNAM in Mexico City. He is included in this Discovery Channel video.


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
