Growing buckwheat in Florida is easy.
I took some pictures of the experimental buckwheat section of my big fall garden a couple of weeks ago… the bed is much crazier now.
First, the shot from high up:
And then, a little lower…
That’s more dramatic, don’t you think? Let’s go further!
Whoa. Look at that. The buckwheat towers above! I feel so insignificant! LET’S GO FURTHER DOWN!
AHHHH! I am a tiny ant!
Okay, enough silliness. I’m very hopeful that buckwheat will be another easy-to-deal-with grain like corn. Not having grown it before, I can’t say much yet – other than the fact that I like the way it looks and I appreciate how it brings in the bees and butterflies.
Buckwheat grows very quickly, so I think it would make a great green
manure or compost crop. Once I harvest these seeds I’ll have lots more
to throw around. Next year!
