I rigged up a temporary greenhouse sitch while I await construction of the real thing. It actually works pretty well and fun (drought tolerant, edible/useful) things are already popping up — Chaste Tree, Hopi Tobacco, Red Fairy Duster, Mojave Aster and Mescal Bean (Sophora secundiflora). Native Americans used the Mescal bean in ceremony; it’s a potent hallucinogen. But I plan to cultivate the lacquer-red seeds for ornamental use, along with the shrub’s showy purple flowers.
