Here's a long video booster on ondol-writ-large; including hydronic underfloor heating as ondol. It does have good footage of traditional direct-wood-fired ondols in operation and in parts.

What's your source in France?  I'd be interested in looking at it in Germany.


Morfydd, to answer your question directly, as I should have, I ordered from B & T World Seeds.

Well, I gave up ordering through B & T World Seeds - neither one of us knew how to deal with the USDA import restrictions, which require Vicia  seed treatment for Bruchidae seed beetles.

The fact that this plant has lower toxins than common vetch and has yields comparable to common vetch suggests this plant has high potential as an alternative food crop. I'll try to acquire some seeds of this plant species by Fall of this year.

I thought that Kudzu was different from Japanese Knotweed, and a vining legume.

There's a Germany source: https://www.dsv-seeds.com/cover-crops/terralife/terrafile-components/hungarian-vetch.html
As well as an Italian: https://www.continentalsemences.com/en/vicia-pannonica/487/
And an Irish source: https://www.fruithillfarm.com/seeds-and-propagation/green-manures-cover-crops/bulk-winter-green-manures/organic-hungarian-vetch.html

The Irish source exports to Europe, but not North America.

Anyone recognize these? In lieu of a species identification I would settle for some good pine cone names.



Andrea, in the spirit of being helpful, I hereby name these pine cones Heidi and Greg.

While helping gather nuts a few years ago at Badgersett Research; Phillip Rutter's farm, he relayed how he had been given several select alder clones; hybrids selected for rapid growth rate in research before hybrid poplar research shaded out the research funding for hybrid alder. They were growing there in Canton MN. I didn't look at them closely.
