A time to celebrate the end of the dry-heat, to rejoice in the crack of lightning, the crash of thunder and the rush of rain that mean it is time to plant. A time to remember that even if the rain clouds are not yet building in the south, they soon will come to quench the land...
Love this Jelly. Just like what my mom used to make. Thanks for the memories.

I haven't planted the seeds yet. I have to wait until they are in brumation or the resulting seedlings will be eaten before the plant has a chance to mature. I have bought them before though and the tortoises like the plants.

The arugula has just sprouted and look forward to the greens in a couple of weeks.
Thanks for the good work you do
Thank you, I received the seeds, but our growing season is coming cervin the Northeast. I won't know anything until next year.
Everything came in the mail quickly and in great shape.
This jam is really good! Unusual and yummy. We also bought the blue corn pancake mix, the pancakes have a nice texture, great product. Looking forward to using the seeds in our cold frame soon.
Quick delivery. Good looking seed. Can’t wait till planting time.
Although genetically Glass Gem is a modern variety, developed by backcrossing three ancient, heirloom Midwestern varieties (Pawnee miniature popcorns with an Osage red flour corn and also another Osage corn called ‘Greyhorse' https://www.businessinsider.com/the-story-behind-glass-gem-corn-2013-10#according-to-an-account-from-schoen-barnes-told-him-that-the-rainbow-seed-originally-came-from-a-crossing-of-pawnee-miniature-popcorns-with-an-osage-red-flour-corn-and-also-another-osage-corn-called-greyhorse-11), it is a good morphological analog for some of the earliest corn grown in the Tucson area 4,000 years ago.
I grew the long luffa last year and it took all season to grow a dozen or so but man they go a long way. I am still using the same quarter I cut close to a year ago to scrub dishes before putting in the dishwasher. Bought these seeds earlier this year and have 3 wild luffa and 2 long luffa that have grown up a trellis and into our mature mesquite here in Tucson. The vines are about 25' in the air and still trying to go higher. I'd say they are about a 1' above the tree canopy. I noticed flowers in Sept but just looked up here in October and there are hundreds of small wild luffa and a few long. Beautiful plant, beautiful flowers, and the bees are in heaven every morning. These are a great addition to any garden even just to bring the bees. Just make sure you have a very tall vertical space and that you plant on the north side of your garden or it will block all sunshine and take over. I guess if you had plants that needed protection from the sun you could build a tall arch system over your garden and train during the year. Oh, FYI, The plant is a huge water hog.
Got the product when promised and the quality is great. The little catus grinder works great and looks good on my counter.
