TOPIC: seed producing area

Re:seed producing area 5 years 3 months ago #18534

This one looks promising - should have a nice wad of berries, if they ever just come on out.

It is a little odd how many are developing at the top of the spike, before the lower ones do.

It is a big stout plant. Hopefully it will see those flowers thru to red berries.

Then I have a few others where most of them are filled out pretty good.

Like the one below.

None showing red yet.

It is HOT again here today, but at least it is not dry.

Looking good TN, Hope you harvest every berry this fall. Looks like they may ripen over a spread out period of time. That isn't uncommon at all for wild plants. Last fall it took about 5 weeks from the first ripe berry to the last one on the wild plants in the area I've dedicated to seed production. Those plants were all native to the area, I had not tranplanted other plants there until last fall.

TN and 5prong,
How's your seed producing coming along ? I'm starting to get quite a few ripe berries off my caged plants now.I've picked over 100 now and probably have about 600 to go if nothing don't happen to them. I'm like a proud parent. My caged area is really working out.

rootman,

Do you have photos posted of your caged plants? I'm trying to get ideas, and this post really got me excited.

Rootman - my seed producers aren't doing nearly as well as what I was hoping for. The deer and the early drought really did a number on them this year. I went out this morning and was happy to see that a few berries were finally starting to ripen.

Last year I harvested and planted around 100 berries from about a dozen wild plants that were already in the area. From those same dozen plants I'll be lucky to get 3 or 4 berries this year. Luckily some of the older plant that I transplanted to the area last fall are fairing a little better.

the first pic is of one of several plants in the area with a barren berry pod. The rest of the pics are of. some plants that are doing better.
