Scored at the Ozark seed Swap today . Got 5 nice bulbs , do I break them
into cloves and plant now ?
I ended up being one of the people that lay their stuff out on a table . I
had a lot more to swap this year . Brought home a lot too ... I need more
garden space .
Clay peas , skunk peas and snap peas . Black oil sunflowers , giant indian
corn , orange bell peppers , cilantro and white liatris . Butternut squash ,
2 kinds of watermelons , and peach cantalopes - the size of a peach ,
cantalope flavor "with a whang" . A very old variety , supposed to make a
very nice jam/jelly . Also got some flat leaf parsley , pink hibiscus and
one called "sweet root" , supposed to smell like licorice when bruised .
Sounds like probably actual licorice plant "Glycyrrhiza glabra". About
50 times sweeter than sugar. Don't overdo it, there are medical
side-effects form excessive consumption.
That's not a don't eat, it's a don't overdo.
Cats, coffee, chocolate...vices to live by
Please don't feed the trolls. Killfile and ignore them so they will go away.
I was told this is a member of the carrot family and that it grows wild in
this (N. central Arkansas) area ... don't know if that makes any difference
in your opinion of what it is . Hmm , the search i did shows those seeds as
round , this seed is about 1/2" long , similar in shape to a marigold seed
but thicker , all black and pointed on both ends .
