I really like Austrian Winter peas as pea greens. They are super tender and very tasty. Later in the season they end up being high protein as well: because of the pea weevils.

Andi:

I grow alfalfa.The effort of collecting seeds from it seems like something that would be best left to industrial scale combines... Although, I attended a seed school sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance. One of the recommendations for harvesting wildflower seed was to hook up a shop vac to a portable generator, and simply vacuum up the seeds. That strikes me as much easier than my current method of hand picking individual pods.

Joseph... Your gona get me into trouble with all these new cultivars cuz ya know at some point I am going to have to get them and give them a try. At least it all veggie and I can't say your bad for my health. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Now that one smart trick. The small hand held vacuums like for cars, dust busters and electronics vacuums work great for sucking up pests and especially them nasty flea beetles and other fast footed bugs, but never thought about using a wet vac for bigger seed like Alfalfa and wheat .
Thank you for sharing.

Christine Thanks for telling me what the link was. Puter acting so stupid with trying to mess with usps and freezing up on me, I think I pass on trying to see that link , but thanks for posting it, somebody may need or enjoy it.

Joseph -- You always seem to have some awesome bit of info to share. I love the idea of using a shop vac for harvesting seeds. I never would have thought of something like that.

Joseph ~ Thank you for the Roasting Sunflowe Giant and Sunflower Landrace Smalled Headed tall and Tomato Early Saladette Seeds. I know this may sound like a silly question. When can I plant these seeds? Since they came from your home and my home may not be as cozy as yours. Thank you for any helpful information that I can grow these as they adjust to their new home.

Bluee19:

Volunteer sunflowers are among first things that germinate for me in the spring. If I plant them intentionally I typically plant the seeds directly into the ground about the same time that the daffodils or forsythia are flowering.

I typically start tomatoes 6 weeks before transplanting into the garden. I aim to transplant them about 10 days after our last average frost.

I have a question. Has anybody ordered from Park's seed lately? How long does it take them to ship your seeds normally. It been a month since the order was placed and still no seed. Do I need to be patient or worry?

Not me, but if I had and it's been a month already I'd contact someone. One of my overseas orders was lost during the holidays, but I contacted the supplier and a new package arrived in only a week's time. The first still hasn't surfaced. I'm betting it was on the big mail truck that lost its load on its way out of New Jersey. Someone's liable to find an envelope growing plants along that highway come spring. Whistling

I just got back from a trip to the greenhouse. I planted true garlic seeds and bulbils into the soil. The ground was frozen this morning, but had thawed by afternoon. Seems like perfect timing for cold stratification.
