Father Luke Nguyen visits the thriving garden of one of his parishioners in 2010. The Versailles Community of East New Orleans is predominately immigrants from Vietnam. Using their agrarian roots, they transformed front yards and backyards into full scale gardens. After Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, this community was one of the first to recover due mainly to their ability to have a secure food system.

lol, what's with Asian and gardening. go to little Saigon and every front yard is full of "bi" and "bau", thang long, guava, etc...Even in an upscale neighborhood you know it's a VN house b/c they always manage to squeeze in a chilli pepper tree.

me, OTOH, have a black thumbs. Plants in my garden keep dying on me except for the weeds which grow very happily. There's a weed that grew near a bush. I didn't notice b/c I thought it was part of the bush but now it's a 7 ft tall tree. I've been searching the net on ways to kill a tree without taking out the root.

I think every Vietnamese house has to have bau or bi.  One of those melon can give your family a meal for a week.  So one plant could support you for a year, just eating rice and melons.

looks yum, it's my favorite comfort soup. Bau is better than bi. Has more flavor and not so soft.

Vietnamese are prepping for space colonization. The Chinese are sure angry with me for stealing their Qumquat technology.
