These guys want to play outside!

Of course, we're no where near our last frost.

Front two rows - Luffa aegyptica (they like warm temps, not just no more frost) - useful cucurbits.

Second two rows - Artichoke, Cynara cardunculus - healthy food, nutrient accumulator, spike root.

Third two rows - Stinging Nettles, Urtica dioica - healthy food (cooked), nutraceutical, nutrient accumulator, insectary. If you get up close, you can see the formidable nettle spikes!
