Seems like you could sprout the seed, or make micro greens.... Haven't tried either of those yet...

mostly, I let the song birds eat the seed through the winter.

Was feeding the lambsquarter plants covered in seed to the chickens last autumn... they enjoyed plucking the seed off the plants....

In kinda the same vein /guerilla gardens; anyone have any experience with Groundnut ? Sounds good, HIGH protein, native vine, perennial, harvest 2 or 3rd year...

Our plants are a strain of a series introduced by William Blackmon of Louisiana State University. His work emphasized Groundnuts as a commercial crop. His work resulted in superior cultivars with large tubers adaptable to many areas of the country, especially the Southeast.

I tried this corn variety a couple of years ago, and it didn't do that great for me. Maybe I should give it another look.

The two corn varieties that have consistently done well for me are Bloody Butcher and Wade's Giant Flint.
