Dessert Island Plant Challenge

Shirl (Shirl’s Garden Watch) challenged us to list three plants we would take to a dessert island.  I gave to a lot of thought and felt best to be practical.

ONE          Grapes to make wine

TWO          Wheat to make bread

THREE       Hops to make beer

I didn’t get hung up in the details of needing other stuff to make these.  In the end, they are still great plants.



  1. LOL! Too funny — but, so necessary, right? 🙂

    I think I’d have to leave the hops behind and find some cocoa beans.

    Very practical!

  3. I considered that, but figured I can drink my beer straight, but would need a cow producing half and half for my coffee.

    Crowds will be forming lines near your place on the island! Gail

  5. Hi Helen, I love a practical woman! 🙂

    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blogger blog. To see the new posts since September 7, do come visit the wordpress blog. I would love to add you to my blogroll on that site. I can see you have a delicious sense of humor.


  6. I must of offended the challenger…my post was not accepted by the challenger. Fact is, I like these plants.

  7. When did Gail start spelling her name Gailae?

    I haven’t done a desert post yet as I’m too busy reading and being witty.

    Can you imagine me on alcohol. Let’s do it and see;)
