Very nice article.
Here in Singapore most peoples live in apartments. So I am lucky to have enough land to grow plants.
My hobby is now a "garden of Paradise" according to an old friend. Besides lots of flowering plants, I also grow lots of herbs, vegetables and fruits!
Fruit trees include a rare banana from Penang, Pink Pomelo, red custard apple, rosella, miracle plant, papaya, purut tree and even two lemon trees - yes the yellow lemon.
Vegetables include sweet potatoes, various greens, some dragon fruits and so on.
Herbs include dandelion, tarragon, rosemary, chives, basils, curry tree, and lots of chinese herbs for diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol etc etc.
Thank you so much and may I say AMAZING!! I too grow many of the herbs you mention. I love dandelion. I grow it in the house as well under grow lamps. Incredible! This is a very inspirational reply and I am grateful you took the time. Thank you so much!
