No, we're not triskaidekaphobic ???--but today is a very appropriate day
for our garden name--Superstition! By the way, the garden name didn't
have anything to do with anything like that. The name came from where
we started the garden 10 years ago when we lived at the base of
Superstition Mountain in Apache Junction, Arizona! But we do love the
Multiple stalks--YES we've had that happen on many varieties each year.
Can't remember the names off-hand, but it is a fairly common occurence
here in our garden. Some regularly have 3 stalks per rhizome--good
stalks too, not pineappled ones.
Drive the 2 1/2 hours to visit us next Spring and we'll show you many of
