Looking for Desert adapted Malabar spinach seed. O.K. to be honest I'm looking for seeds mostly food and pollinators adapted to zone 10a. A lot of what I plant does not come up.

My tree collards and Egyptian spinach have already died. ( Hubby was put in charge for a week while I went to finish mom"s estate. He did try.. but after a 14 hour day I would not want to be out playing in the bleedin' yard either. Basically desert food.. the fewer spikes and spines the better.

Sounds like you need to put up some shade cloth or something to cool down the soil until some plants can make their own shade.
I bought some cheap umbrellas to shade some big planter pots until they got established.
