achocha and other seeds

hi friends! we have an abundance of achocha/caigua seeds and would love to share them. it is also known as the bolivian cucumber and has edible pods and leaves. the bees absolutely adore the flowers, which are also edible.

i also have some potimarron seeds from our dear pierre, who is the mother-father and whose seeds are doing exceptionally well. this favorite french chestnut pumpkin/squash has exceptional flavors.

ps send me your addresses and i will mail them to you.

it’s hard to believe how vibrant and generous nature is.  the colors and textures of all this goodness:  red velvet lettuce, waldmann’s dark green lettuce, chocolate cherry tomatoes (thank you starryowl5!), rattlesnake beans, scarlet runner beans (this plant is from last year’s stump!), meraviglia di venezia beans (from last year’s one and only remaining seed), potimarron squash, dino kale, romanesco artichoke, sage and purple carrots.  

the satisfaction grows ever more as we have grown all of these from seeds, except for the artichoke and sage.  we continue to learn from the earth.
