TEOSINTE III !!!
Geeked…utterly geeked is the only way to describe it…the sub-topical grass zea diploperennis in the perennial garden project reaffirms its perennial nature by returning for a third season on campus…this past winter wasn’t as mild as the previous one and I had serious doubt about the grass pulling through even though I had mulched it even more heavily than in the autumn of 2011…four shoots up from two of the clumps and that means there will be more on the way…still two inert clumps out there and my hopes are for a bumper crop since there are four plants up from seed I planted last month…more as it comes up.
