Anyone growing Astragalus crassicarpus? If so, what are your experiences?
I planted some seeds this year, it's a very slow growing plant. I probably wont get any fruit off of it until next year. Has anyone ever tried it?

I have tried to grow from seed but mine died, like most plants I try to grow.

Going to try again.
