    Thank you! Live in Dallas, TX – involved with getting a community garden started. Won't be using these in the beds because concerned about invasive species. Very glad that you pointed that out. Should be ok if in containers though. Enjoyed learning about these different veggies! 🙂

    "We need to get rid of green plants, they keep us dependent on C02 , without green plants we wouldn't need C02 in the first place . And those nurseries pump in C02 for fertilizer. Someday we will bring C02 levels down to zero and finally clean this earth of all this messy disgusting carbon based life forms and the earth will finally be clean..and barren" ~ Weird AL Gorebalist
