What are the pros? Can handle severe neglect

What are the cons? Can be slow to germinate


I am terrible at following directions. I skipped the cold storage and direct sowed these seeds back in March, figuring it was still cold enough outside to do the trick. They showed no signs of life for MONTHS, then finally in June they popped up almost overnight. They’re still quite small, and I’m leaving them to get a bit more established before I harvest any, but given that I had written them off as a lost cause I am quite pleased! I expect they’ll come up much stronger next year. I look forward to using them for food, fiber, and medicine.
