Collecting Hablitzia Seed
Hablitzia plant on the north side of a shed.
Have you heard? My Hablitzias have set seed and they look good! You haven't heard? That surprises me considering how loud I shouted when I discovered it but maybe you were listening to music or something or mistook me for an angry raven. Anyhow, on the off chance, you haven't heard:
"My Hablitzia tamnoides gave me seed!!"

You don't know what I'm talking about? Spinach from the Caucasus? Perennial, shade tolerant green? Our friend Habby. Stephen Barstow is always going on about it.
Stephen? Extreme salad man? Okay so now you're intrigued.
Let's go back to the Habby seeds.
Aren't they lovely?
Before I winnow, I'm going to let it dry down a bit more but looks promising.
Next year, all going well, Habby plants will be exiting my greenhouse (still under construction and by under construction I mean shovel yet to hit the dirt but I have days marked off on my calendar so soon) in the spring for sale. Woohoo!
