Super location; lucky you.
For Turkish cuisine: a bay tree, which will eventually provide needed shade; peppermint in a pot to contain it and keep the roots damp; dill in a series of plantings; oregano and marjoram.
For cuts and stings: aloe vera
For fragrance: matilija poppy, if you have room

It looks like an aloe vera plant. Very hard to kill any succulent really. They survive deserts after all. It is easy to take a piece and transplant it into a pot (or two or more) and keep some in a greenhouse, some in the bathroom etc and monitor them all to see their reactions to different environments.

Good luck. Check the web out for tips.

Is it an aloe vera? if it is then you have to keep it on the dry side, treat it like a succulent, the gel is used for burns.

Hi, Bole,
A little tricky to tell from the photo. Are the leaves fairly rigid, edged in dark spines, and blue- to grey-green? If so it looks to be Agave americana - Century plant. If the leaves are softer, with softer spines, and ooze a clear, gelatinous liquid when cut, then is is Aloe vera.

What is this shoot that appeared?

Question from Biggkenny

In forum: Identify a plant

I have an aloe vera which i keep in a glass, everything was normal, until this mysterious not-aloe-vera shoot appeared, can anyone tell me what it is? The aloe vera is kept in close proximity to a peace lily. Also please note that the shoot and aloe vera are less yelow than in the picture, but the shoot is a lot lighter in colour than the aloe vera.

Hi Neil, looks very much like aloe vera, I can't quite see if it has serrated edges. If you break a leaf it is full of liquid that has medicinal propeties that are meant to be good for burns.
