Just a Quick Note about something I learned this year while gathering and drying seed from this plant.
Ants love it, little black ants will come thru your walls and bypass all other seeds drying for this one.
I had 10 different seed drying in cups, this is the only cup they were inside of.
I will dry them inside something closed next year with a silica pellet or paper towel, so the little pests won't get in and damage them.
