Hi Sailawaygirl (Elizabeth)
This is what i figured out whilst doing my plant growing experiment
if it helps you.
I have 28' yacht so space is at a premium.
I made custom planters that could be mounted inside if needed or sit outside, could even have pairs of them hanging off lifelines
Some veggies and herbs are more salt
tolerant than others.
Stuff i grew was,...
Basil, went well
Spring Onions, ok but should have grew more at once
Chives, same as above
Lettuce, surprisingly good but ended up looking mutant
Bok Choi, also grew well
Mint, wasn't happy
Curry, stayed alive but didnt grow
Parsley and corriander, both grew ok.
All in all the plants survived in the saline environment
but didnt grow as quickly as i would have liked and i've got plenty of warm sun or shade to suit them.
For the amount of time and water
used to keep them growing i found that the amount that i harvested wasn't enough to keep me interested in doing it for food
, but might suit someone who wanted a hobby.
Probably got a good salad for one person every three weeks.
Compared to my little beans, which produce huge amounts compared to the effort put in.
I ended up giving everything away and built a solar
dehydrator instead, and just went back to beans, and with beans if you look around you can find some interesting varieties to choose from.
If you need any other or have questions let me know, im happy to help.
