It's a good thing you have diversified your plant portfolio with both tropicals and cold hardy plants. Global warming, new ice age or pole shift, you'll be fine.lol

Legumes... not sure about those even in a survival situation because of the lectins.

Is there a way to get rid of 100 percent of the elections from legumes?

It is a type of hibiscus that flowers in the fall. When the flower dies, the calyx is edible and supposedly tastes like cranberry. It is used in tea. Celestial seasonings "red zinger " I think.

I may or may not get production because of late planting. If I do I will send you seeds for next spring. If not we will have to wait one year :(
I will overwinter a couple of the plants in pots just to be sure because I planted all the seeds I have.

Pigeon peas are an easy way to add to your food security. Pigeon peas are a staple food that provide good protein. Not only are they delicious, they are prolific and easy to grow. Although it is a subtropical plant, it can be grown as an annual in colder climates. It proudces pods with edible peas in eight months and grows 12 ft within a year.

But there's more. This is a nitrogen fixing plant. It improves the soil. It can be used as a cover crop or planted near fruit trees . The branches are used for mulch or can be fed to livestock. Chickens can eat the green peas. (Or cooked peas of course) .

I hope everyone will take a close look at this amazing plant.

you know this one? Germinating a hamburger bean

Here's another shot of the hamburger bean (Mucuna urens) I showed you in my previous post on drift seeds:


And now here it is a week after I sawed a notch in it with a pocket knife, soaked it for a day or two, then put it in moist peat moss and vermiculite:

See the little root peeking out? And how weirdly black and swollen the bean looks? That sucker took on a lot of water (and piercing its seed coat was no easy feat). I replanted the bean after the above picture and let it alone for a few more days... until a shoot rapidly emerged from the ground. And I do mean rapidly! It grew about 12" in a couple of days and started rotating around in a circle looking for something to grasp. It moved so fast that my wife and I sat on the porch and watched it make an entire rotation in about an hour. I stuck a little pole in for it to grab... which it did - and twisted itself completely tight to it within another hour's time.

From what I read, this particular bean grows many tens of feet into the air... reaching the top of tall trees... so I have no idea how I'll be able to keep it contained. I'd like to raise it to a point where it bears beans of its own, but that will mean protecting it from frosts this coming winter.

Here it is now:


Mucuna urens is a close relative of the velvet beans (Mucuna pruriens) I've been growing but it's apparently even more tropical. Who would've thought you could find a bean on the beach and grow it? I picked these things up dozens of times without ever thinking about germinating one. There's a first time for everything, I suppose. And even if this doesn't do anything for my "survival gardener" cred, it's at the very least a rather satisfying experiment.

I will do that for my primary moringa plantings. The others I will make a mound of sand around the base like the citrus growers here in Fla do or a mound of used horse stall bedding. The later will produce heat (hopefully not too much heat, a little risky but worth a shot)

I've never heard of it. Soon I will be visiting a south Florida beach where I grew up (gulf side). I will look for drift seeds.
