Safflower- False Saffron2

mystery plant solved - Orange-yellow flowers grow in flower heads about 1 to 1-1/2 inches across. This thistle is valued for its flowers in summer and for the oil contained in its seeds. Tender shoots can be eaten as a salad and potherb.

Hollyhocks and Citrus trees

I just planted 5 citrus trees, 2 more to go, and thought that hollyhocks would not only add color to my yard, but also provide shade to the trunks of the trees. Would it be a good idea to plant them in the well of the trees? I read that lavender, marigolds and tansy are companion plants for citrus, but they don't get tall enough. Any suggestions?

What is this plant?

Does anyone know what type of plant this is? It may have come from a seedball.

Peggy, your fermented Purslane was scrumptious, would you share the recipe?

Peggy, It was a fun evening!

Amazing food, games and conversation with people who respect the Earth and appreciate the goodies that Nature offers ... What a treat!

Tank you and I am looking forward to the next one. :-)

Thanks for finding me, Peggy! I'd definitely like to chat with you about fermenting produce; I'm eager to learn!

One thing I have discovered about Moringa trees is that they like to dry out between waterings. I think they are suseptible to root rot.

 I lost a couple of small trees early on this summer because I started them in pots and I think they went into shock when I transplanted them into the yard. I currently have 8 of them that I planted this summer and they are doing well. I have been 'topping them' regularly to make them more bushy. I'm eating the leaves or drying them to use later.

Now I just hope they make it through the winter! Then I might actually get some flowers and seeds :) I'll be happy to share.

thanks for the chard, and thanks for being flexible. That worked out so great for me today! Hope you enjoy the eggs.

will need to be a little flexible as I never know how full my schedule is until I get to work in the morning. Usually Fridays end by 12-12:30. Do you have some flexibility in your schedule? If we can work it out I would love to do a trade. My # is 480-292-5971, I can't always answer my phone if I am with a Patient, but leave a message and I will call you back. I also have your number.
