(Stachys... at BiodiverSeed Crosnes, a.k.a. Chinese Artichokes a.k.a. (Stachys affinis) These small edible tubers come from a perennial plant in the mint (Lamiaceae) family, that has long been cultivated in China and Japan (where they are normally served pickled). Crosnes à la crème They have a flavour similar to that of a sunchoke, but slightly nuttier. The tubers also bear a striking resemblance to maggots! They are hardy in USDA zones 4-8, and like many members of this family, tolerate water-logged soil. Apparently, if a nearby market can be found for them, they sell for roughly $80 CAD (60€) /kg, with a yield being roughly 1 kg/m2. I managed to track these tubers down from a private seller of rare germplasm, “Elfskins Edibles.” Read More: Plants for a Future; Eat the Weeds; Mother Nature News Illustration: Le site du Jardinier #perennial vegetables #seed sellers #root vegetables #edible landscaping

The Seed Ambassadors Project The Seed Ambassadors Project | Bringing Biodiversity Back New Film Explores Loss of Seed Diversity By Su Avasthi on March 5, 2015 Few things are more essential to our survival than seeds, yet few things are taken more for granted. Filmmaker M. Sean Kaminsky’s new documentary Open Sesame looks at the necessity for seed diversity and how monoculture-farming practices threaten it. In the past century, we’ve lost an astonishing 90 percent of the fruit and vegetable seeds once available. Instead, the world’s food supply is built largely on hybrid seeds, and like mules, they are unable to naturally reproduce. Open Sesame illuminates what is at stake when seeds are patented and controlled by large corporation, and the film features different approaches that enterprising farmers are using to preserve seeds and foster diversity. As spring planting season begins, we spoke with Kaminsky about the film, what inspired him to make it and the perils facing seeds today. Open Sesame is available to stream or download here on Vimeo, as well as iTunes and Amazon. M. MSK: We have come close.
Elderberry, Black (Sambucus nigra) packet of 50 seeds (in dried berries), organic (Black Elder, Elder Berry, Black Elderberry) Family: Honeysuckle (Caprifoliaceae) Hardy to -30 degrees F Perennial, deciduous, multistemmed bush to small tree native to Europe. Wild form. This is the most tried-and-true species for medicinal use, and the berries are very tasty, and about twice as big as the berries of other species. Surprisingly, it is very difficult to find this, the standard native land race of black elderberry, for sale in the usual places. The standard form has been lost in an avalanche of select varietals that may be pretty but are less medicinally active. More discussion on removing seeds from dried berries: We provide dried berries.
