  • Marcia Cash, Do you have a blog or a column or some space where we can read your writings? I have been wondering that off and on for years. You write really well. Cindy

  • You are right - often several species have the same common names, Marcia. I don't have a very good camera, but I uploaded a pic of the "Okinawan spinach" in the photos section.

  • Can anyone tell me how I can tell about harvesting and when to harvest the calyces of Hibiscus sabdariffa? I have tried to check on the Web, but I am still not clear on what I should be looking for. Thanks. Cindy

  • Thanks for the info on the varieties, Dan. My squash is finally making male flowers at least. Yay! I hope we'll see some fruited flowers soon too. Cindy
