Came home from a camping trip to find the Job’s Tears looking all grown up! I procured five seeds online from a woman who did not have many to spare, but she nonetheless shared. I planted them into an empty plastic bottle and put them outside in the freezing thawing wilds of my garden. In the spring there were five green shoots, which I transplanted into my flower bed. They have grown so very fast!
The best part for me is you can use the seeds as natural beads as they grow with a hollow inside. I don’t think I will get many beads this go round, but if I plant what I harvest and then harvest that crop, we may just have a necklace or two. Also, I owe five seeds for good karma to anyone who wants to grow some too. Let me know if want them.
