I have corn seeds to swap. These were grown in my Low Water Garden. Their parents are:
Lofthouse Harmony Grain Maize
"A joyful family reunion between a hybrid swarm of North American grain corns and a synthetic composite of 6 races of South American grain corns: Tuxpeno, Coastal Tropical Flint-Dent, Southern Cateto, Cuzco, Coroico, and high-altitude Andean. Harmony was developed to unify various diasporas of corn and to create a strong genetic base from which to conduct plant selection and breeding. Among the corns that I grow, this population most fully expresses mother maize's role as mother of life, teacher, problem solver, and sacred technologist. Contains flint, dent, flour, pop, and a small amount of sweet corn. Adapted to temperate growing conditions. Not day-length sensitive. About 85 to 115 DTM to grain stage. High resistance to predation by birds and small mammals." http://garden.lofthouse.com/seed-list.phtml
This is not the right forum for this, except the geography applies. I just watered my trees and had to give a thumbs up to jujube trees. Every other tree is struggling in this heat and lack of rain. The jujubes look GREAT! They were planted last year. Theres not a brown spot or wilted leaf on it. Can't say that for pecan, walnut, peach, pear, paw paw, persimmon, pear, etc etc.
I hope the fruit tastes good. I have never tried it. Actually I have never seen it.
I have a limited amount of mayo amaranth seed (red amaranth w/ black seed and edible leaves) that has naturalized in my garden over the past 6 years.
I have a green short staple cotton seed of east texas heritage that has been dryland grown here four the past four years.
I have a limited amount of a landrace brassica heavy w/ kale parentage, good nutty flavor , good heat and cold tolerance. Working on a heading variety
wanting fruit seed jujube, manzanita, etc. anything hardy to zone 7 to 9.
legume seed I have red bud, albia J., honeylocust, need others.
more to come as fall progresses.
Is this thread still active? If not, we should restart it since winter is the perfect time to trade seeds. 🙂
I will be going through my seed bank pretty soon (when it gets too cold to spend a lot of time working on projects outside), and don't mind sharing/trading my extras. Many are seeds I've harvested, plus some I've bought and had leftovers after planting. I'm around the midpoint of Austin, Dallas, and Houston (about 2 driving hours from each city), and almost all have done well in my dry, sandy soil with alkaline water.
I know I have a lot of mimosa/silk tree & sweet pepper seeds, and can post my list of others in this thread once I get the inventory done.
I'm always looking for new things to grow; especially perennials, useful trees, and uncommon things you don't usually find in the box stores.
