Thanks for the 411 Caesar, that’s good to know.

Caesar, I think you’re right. You posted earlier about eBay seller “Uncle Chan” selling D. alata as D. esculenta. Well, a while back, I purchased a purple D. esculenta from an eBay seller in Thailand and when it finally sprouted, it wound up being Ube, a purple D. alata. Anyway, about 5 months ago I ordered D. esculenta from Uncle Chan and it finally arrived today. It’s purple and it’s already sprouting. I’m not 100% yet but, here in about a week or two, after it grows a few inches, I’ll know if it’s an Ube also. Oh well, it was worth a shot. I was really looking forward to that being a D. esculenta. The only one I have just woke up from a 4 month sleep about 3 weeks ago and is, so far, my least vigorous Dioscorea.

I think you’re right rob. It looks like a blue passionflower, Passiflora caerulea.

Yeah, once the flowers get pollinated they will set fruit. Each flower that gets pollinated will produce a fruit so,....it looks like you’re going to have a ton of fruit soon. I like to pop the fruit open and scoop the inards out into a pitcher of water. After about a day or so, the seeds will slip from the gelatinous pulp then you can strain the seeds from the fruit/water mixture, add some sugar to the mixture and you’ll have a lemonade like refreshing summer drink.

I’ve been growing plectranthus rotundafolius for a while now and it crops out pretty while come harvest time but I’d like to know what the difference in yield is between the two. Does anyone have experience with these two root crops or know where I can get a plectranthus esculentus so I can do my own trials? Thanks y’all.

It looks like you need to give the lemon tree some Epsom salts. That’ll green it up.

Yup! Those are nettle grubs. They did a number on my lawn last year. They ate the roots and killed the grass. I put out nematodes for grubs and I haven’t had a problem since. Also, nematodes will work for several years after you put them in.

The first one is Sida acuta, the second one looks like conyza canadensis with a bad case of witch’s broom( a virus) and the last one is wedelia. I’m not sure about the second one but the other 2 I’m sure of. Sida acuta is a roadside weed here in Florida but it’s actually a powerful medicinal in the hibiscus (mallow) family. Look it up.

I know several people who have horses. They clean the stalls regularly and they can’t give it away fast enough. It’s a mixture of straw saw dust and of course horse manure. They only bad thing is if they feed the horses oat in their stalls, then oats will sprout. If you know anyone with horses it’s a good way to fil your bed quickly and free.
