i thot this might be helpful to some gardens suffering from the sun. it's been a long time since the last dry season and i forgot about shading the plants and or the soil to help keep soil temperatures down and conserve moisture. i spent some time at a garden in hawaii that had hale koa planted as an overstory crop to shade a greens garden. hale koa is similar to malunggay and both are legumes so they will provide filtered lite and some nitrogen. i've been wanting to get a bunch of malunggay growing in our garden to provide some shade but i've not had much success growing malunggay, so short of using shade cloth, i've covered some of the soil with trimmed lokai (palm fronds) placed under the plants. attached is a foto of lokai (palm fronds) placed under some young greens.
