I don't have any seeds saved in the greenhouse, but did find about 50 on the plant stems this morning. How they hung on during the hurricane is a mystery to me!
PM me if interested, and send a SASE, it needs to be a padded envelope, because they will get crushed otherwise! Or if it is easier, send a couple of loose stamps, a dollar and your addy. That should cover it!
I'll put 20 seeds in each pkt sent; partly because I don't have gobs and partly because once they take off you will have 1000s of seeds!
I recommend starting them indoors and transplanting to the garden or patio after frosts. They need something to climb on!
This is an amazing plant which thanks to Liz, I got to experience and enjoy for about two years. I planted mine in big (10 gallon) pots and stuck a 6-8ft sapling/stick in each pot. They climbed and climbed (very Jack and the Beanstalk) until the stick was completely covered in purple vines and beautiful deep green leaves . We ate off these for months and when frost threatened, I brought them into the house and we continued to eat off of them through the whole winter. The leaves are so tasty! The big leaves are thick and cut like a steak. It's really very amazing.
When the plants were "done", I pulled the vine covered sticks out of the pots and fed them to my young pigs and chickens. There was NOTHING left. I kept some seeds and started new plants but from this second run I failed to save any seeds so when I got to the "there was nothing left" stage it kind of ended my climbing spinach run.
I think I am going to try this plant this year.......we dont have a greenhouse yet, but we have decided to 'greenhouse' (potted veggies) thru the winter out on our sun porch. Its got a western/southwestern facing, and full of windows.....anyway, I was thinking this might be a great addition and I can grow it in a huge pot that I have
Thanks for the info....I had never heard of this before! Cindy

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
