    Jeff, in your experience, what is the best way to grow these from seed? At what stage of seeding would I plant them? Do they have to be dried first?  I do have some pods that I collected last season while hiking in Joshua Tree (section 6).  May I ask where your video was taken? It looks like some of the areas I hike.

    Well done!  I was searching about this plant as I would like to use it as a barrier outside of my property fence. Kind of a part of security.  To find out that it's edible and medicinal is a huge plus. I'm so excited to grow them.

    speaking of snakes, when sleeping in the desert is it true if you drag a rope around you in a circle the snake might keep away from the rope?
