"Cricket is right, that is the weed! I thought it was a spurge, but now I know the identity of this common Arizona pioneer weed. Nature hates bare land, and has many ways to cover it!"

"This is definitely Red Spiderling and not Spurge or Four '0 clocks. The flowers are very tiny on them when they appear, very pretty close up. Still don't know about their edible qualities. I'm sure that further research will turn up…"

"I doubt that that is what it is.  From your photo the leaves and stems are not fuzzy, whereas the description of the plant on the link specifically states they are fuzzy.  Which is clearly on display in the link photo. "

"It is called Red Spiderling (Boerhaavia Coccinea) http://www.uapress.arizona.edu/onlinebks/WEEDS/GRAPHICS/FIG59.GIF I have this in my yard every year and pull it out often. I don't know if it is edible."

"This is a type of spurge, not sure which kind, there are hundreds of types. We get these in the yard, both with hot pink and another with white flowers. I find that some years are worse than others, but the hens love the seeds. Go figure. "

"I don't know what it's called, but it's a horrible weed, and difficult to eradicate.  It has sticky seeds that stick to everything (pets, shoes, etc.) and spreads vigorously.  When I bought my house, I had to use a propane…"

Cindy, I understand about moving. I did get rid of a lot of my things I had not used in a long time. I think downsizing is good. In any case, whenever you are ready just let me know. Happy moving and God Bless.

Hi Cindy, happy New Year. Hope all is going well for you. Do you still have plans on building a straw bale home?  I am inches away from my license and looking forward to this new year. Did you make any further contact with the guy up in the Northwest that does dirt flooring? Just keeping in touch and wondering how things are progressing in your move and plans. Patrick

We got the apple tree from Moon Valley Nursery. It's called an Anna's Apple. I think they are from Isreal. This tree is in my rose garden, so it gets plenty of water, gets fertilized on a regular basis, there are a lot of bees to pollenate the flowers. The apples got huge this year.

I also am a 'late blooming gardner' having had a very busy earlier life with work & kids. Good luck to you. I was facinated by the bananas but have not tried that. I have had some luck with pineapple tops rooting and making a pretty plant.
