5.15.20 // castor bean 🌿 every year we always grow something new, this year we are trying castor bean! Last year we visited @droziksfarms and were smitten with his castor plants. I snagged 3 seeds from his plant, and two of them germinated! They are tender perennials, so they will grow as an annual here. They can get up to 6-7’ tall! I’m very excited to watch them grow this year. It will be a huge bonus if they can help repel the voles in our garden, as I know castor oil is used for this purpose. We will see!
