First post here and wanted to contribute something useful. I have been doing something kind of clever with the "chia" plant this past season and thought I would share. I thickly direct-sowed the chia seeds into a border around my garden. Within 2-3 months a dense green fence popped up and now protects my garden from small animals and deer seem to be avoiding it. They grow very fast and fairly straight. As a secondary and tertiary functions, they also blossom to attract pollinators and produce seeds that just so happen to be super foods. Tons of omega 3s!
Hope you find this useful. Ill try to post pictures soon.

Very interesting - how high does the 'fence' grow?

Living Wind - where is that picture from? Can I grow this here in SC? I love the plant and I do put chia seeds in a lot of my foods.
